The Oris Pro-Pilot Big Crown Day Date

Published by:

Oris Pro-Pilot Big Crown Day Date

The Big Crown Pro-Pilot Day Date, with its sunburst dial and nuanced case detail adds a touch of class and makes for a nice alternative to the typical macho aviator fare.

Avalon (part-way between Melbourne and Geelong) will become one of the busiest air spaces in the country in March. The normally sleepy airport will be transformed when state-of-the-art planes including the gigantic RAF Atlas airlifter and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (in its first Australian sighting), will thunder down from the skies. The reason, of course, is the bi-annual Avalon Airshow, the world’s third largest aviation trade show, and if you’re in the market for a private jet or just looking to stock up on heat-seeking missiles, no doubt it’s already in the diary. We’ll be there for a more down-to-earth purpose, spending time with event sponsors Oris, a brand with its eyes firmly on the skies. read more

Bronze beauty – the Oris Carl Brashear Limited Edition

Published by:

The story in a second

From the bright and shiny press pics, to the patinated reality, the bronze Carl Brashear from Oris is one of the buzziest watches released this year.

We had thought, towards late 2015, that the watch world had reached peak bronze. The uncommon material, pioneered by Panerai and Anonimo seemed to be everywhere – from dive watches to pilots. Well, we got that one wrong. The bronze age continues unabated, with two premier dive watch releases: the bronze evolution of Tudor’s Black Bay, and this limited edition take on the Divers Sixty-Five, the Carl Brashear Limited Edition. Both are variations on a theme – a 40-odd-millimetre diver with a heritage twist. But for all the similarities it’s remarkable how different these two pieces look – the Tudor is brawny, while the Oris is beautiful. Inspired by the story of Carl Brashear, the US naval diver famously portrayed by Cuba Gooding Jnr in Men of Honor, this is a textbook example of what a well-done limited edition looks like. read more

Reviewing Hands-On Oris Calibre 111

Reviewing Hands-On Oris Calibre 111

“Real watches for real people” is the slogan of Oris and although I seldomly take these kind of lines very serious, this one does make sense actually. Real people, like you and me, who have to save-up for a nice watch, a real watch. Don’t be mislead by all the images of tourbillon watches or minute repeaters shown everywhere, they only represent a very small market. Oris showed us that they were able to move the watch industry, or more important, its consumers, with their €1700 Euro Sixty-Five divers watch. Where a lot of other brands were occupied last year with increasing prices and trying to justify these to their clients (retailers and consumers) during the SIHH and BaselWorld, the talk of the town was Oris with their Divers Sixty-Five timepiece. read more
