Arguably among Oris’ signature features, the pointer-date, has been a staple in their Pilot Watch sets because 1938. Operating at 4Hz with a power reserve of 38 hours, the Oris Caliber 754 is a modified Sellita SW200-1 that displays the date in the form of a fundamental red-tipped hand which sweeps round a “date ring” located on the outside dial. While I’ve seen this feature called “distracting” and including “clutter,” I find it fascinating and enjoyable. The Oris Caliber 754 matches the watch perfectly. The pointer-date function helps make the Oris Big Crown D.26 286 HB-RAG a fantastic alternative for a vintage-inspired mechanical pilot watch with a unique feature, and also the added bonus of not killing a bank account.ris has ever been one of my favorite brands, at no small part because I really like a business that is enthusiastic about being included in the community and the heritage surrounding them. Good for business? Sure. Great for the world? Even better. Hangar 31’s motto is “Conserve and Fly,” and it feels like Oris was a good fit to come together and live up to this. No. 01-754-7741-4087-LS will come in a cool leather pouch, so be limited to 1,931 bits (for the entire year the aircraft was commissioned), and take a price of 1,850 CHF. Coinciding nicely with the 20th anniversary of their original Worldtimer watch, Swiss watch maker Oris has launched an upgraded version for 2017 using the Oris Big Crown ProPilot Worldtimer. Initial released to much acclaim in 1997, the 2017 variation features a fresh time-setting mechanism. Something to explain right off is that despite the word “Worldtimer” in its own title, the Oris Big Crown ProPilot Worldtimer is in reality a dual-timezone view — and not one that shows many time zones around the planet simultaneously, that is normally what a “world time” watch describes (many examples here).

Pelagios Kakunjá’s objective is to understand movements and migratory paths of the marine world’s top predators. Its most recent project will seem to find out more about migration routes of this endangered Scalloped Hammerhead (Sphyrna lewini) species of shark in the Eastern Pacific. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, the international population of Scalloped Hammerheads has dropped by around 90 per cent over the last 30 years.This is just another new watch out of ORIS we anticipate seeing at Baselworld 2017. The new 43.50mm Aquis Date continues both the soul and layout DNA of its predecessor. The horns and the bracelet are thinner, providing the case and the entire watch a slimmer profile. The hands and indices are redesigned to look shinier and shinier, and the screw-in safety crown and crown protectors are refined to give the view a sleeker silhouette. Launched in 2014, this view combines a retro contemporary design of its only marginally oversized stainless steel body with a self-winding movement featuring day/date screen. The movement is outsourced from Sellita. Easily comprehensible with Superluminova numerals and comfortable thanks to its ergonomically shaped case and soft leather strap, with folding clasp, the watch has the signature crimson ORIS rotor visible through the caseback.Bhanu got very excited about this view as it was introduced at Baselworld last year and kept insisting we vote it number one of all the divers watches we’d seen. The Sixty Five Minute’s case was updated from 36mm to some modern fit of 40mm. Even though the situation is constructed of multi-piece stainless steel, then it wears very light. This is due to the slender profile of this case, which easily fits under the cuff. Contrary to the original divers which needed a bi-directional bezel, this is a 120-click unidirectional bezel.
Whether it’s the sponsorship of efforts for the preservation of a forgotten island or Dealing with Australia’s Royal Flying Doctor Service, Swiss watch manufacturer Oris was involved with some pretty trendy causes over the years. Featuring a green dial along with the Oris Caliber 754 pointer-date motion, the Oris Big Crown D.26 286 HB-RAG is a interesting new retro watch that will appeal to enthusiasts searching for a vintage-inspired timepiece with a great deal of personality and Oris’ reputation for value.In a welcome change of pace, green dials are getting more prevalent from a great deal of brands — most recently, the well-received Panerai PAM735, 736, and 737 collection, for example. Of course, there was likewise Oris’ own Divers Sixty-Five using a green dial too, amongst others. As for me, I find it to be an exciting trend. We’ve observed a seemingly endless stream of blue dials over the last few decades, and as an enthusiast with a number of blue watches myself, I am starting to feel a little burnt out. It seemed that all at once everyone wanted to add a blue dial for their turning, and brands were eager to accommodate. While beautiful in a lot of cases, I’m prepared to see some new trends emerge. Well-done green dials are definitely appreciated and something that I will get behind.The Oris Big Crown D.26 will have a stainless steel case measuring in at 40mm. Though this might seem small after a few of the more recent pilot see releases, it is in line with the classic theme — and there is no shortage of vintage aviation effect here. Pretty much every single feature of the watch is affected by the military-green cockpit of this Dewoitine D.26 aircraft, and it’s spot on. Oris prides itself on its slim-line case and curved lugs, taking immediate clues and inspiration in the Large Crown watch family that was introduced in 1938. The case comes with a fluted bezel and a wrought crown (for twisting with gloves on) — something that feels and looks fantastic from the green dial. The dial itself, in keeping song with the conventional pilot watch layout while scoring sway in the cockpit’s gauges, features printed Super-LumiNova Arabic numerals and traditional polished nickel hands. Adding to the old-school inspiration is a domed sapphire crystal, and also the addition of two leather straps — a dark brownish or a tan. Engraved on the caseback is your D.26 airplane, along with the limited edition number.
Two years ago, Oris watches unveiled its first in-house, series-produced caliber: 111. That watch – the Arteliier Caliber 111 — marked the beginning of a new movement development plan for the brand. It was also a very impressive caliber. As such, it is the perfect conduit to bring a bold blue dial to the forefront.
The engine of this watch, the Calibre 111, is a hand-wound mechanical movement with date indication and a10-day power reserve in a patented format. The non-linear power reserve at 3:00 is oversized and is a standout feature on the blue dial, and the single barrel, as well as the “worm gear” for the power reserve indicator, can be seen from the caseback. The caliber is complex and took six years to develop as the brand’s first in-house movement. The new Artelier Calibre 111 comes in a 43mm stainless steel case with a deep blue sun-ray dial. It is finished with a dark blue (or black) Louisiana croco leather strap, or a stainless steel bracelet. It retails for $5,500.
