There are a few reasons why an Oris watch is perfect for wearing on Chinese New Year. Hence, this guide to the best Oris watches to buy for more huat will highlight many reasons why and also give a detailed look at each of Oris watch picks.
If you don’t already know, Oris makes watches powered by in-house and renowned Swiss movement manufacturers. With a reputation for promising its wearers value for money, Oris watches make for great prosperous investments as well. The brand’s collections can be divided into four key categories: aviation, diving, motorsports, and culture. Here’s a list of Oris watches we think you should buy for the Lunar New Year:
1. Oris Aquis Date Relief 733 7766 4158-07 8 22 05PEB Mechanical Women Watch
A watch made for the ladies, the Oris Aquis Date Relief is a dive tool that sports a unique character. While it can be used on both land and underwater, with its striking red dial, this model makes for a pretty distinct and eye-catching finish on the wrist. While the 41.5mm is slightly chunkier than a conventional lady’s watch, it does a great job of accentuating the delicate lines of a women’s wrist. Presenting time on a striking red dial, the hands and indexes around the hour track have also been coated with a layer of SuperLumiNova for assisted timekeeping in the dark.
If you like going into the water frequently, you’ll appreciate the 300M water-resistant capability built into its tough stainless steel case. The model is also topped with a domed, anti-reflective, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass. The watch is also completed with a robust steel bracelet that doubles up as a dressy accessory with more formal or professional work attire.
2. Oris ProPilot X Calibre 400 400 7778 7158-07 7 20 01TLC Mechanical Men Watch
This 39mm Oris ProPilot X Calibre 400 watch has several unique selling points that we love. Firstly, it is powered by an in-house movement that is crafted by Oris’ skilled engineers. Like all the watches in the Calibre 400 Series, this watch features elevated levels of anti-magnetism and a five-day power reserve function. The watch is also made using titanium for an ultra-lightweight feel on the wrist.
Defined by its unique fluted bezel and watch face of 39mm, this Oris watch boasts a very subtle and vintage-inspired feel. It also features a salmon-pink dial adorned with slim stick markers in white, central hands, and a date window at 6 o’clock. The watch is completed with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal glass front for a clear view into the surface of the dial, as well as a lightweight, multi-piece titanium bracelet with a folding clasp.
3. Oris Big Crown 754 7741 3167-07 5 20 58BR Pointer Date 80th Anniversary Edition Men Watch
Loved for its instantly recognisable pointer date hand tipped in a red triangle, it’s no wonder the Oris Big Crown Pointer Date watch is a favourite amongst watch collectors. Working in conjunction with the date numerals around the edge of the exclusive green dial is a set of crisp, luminously coated Arabic numeral hour markers and central hands.
This watch also belongs to the Oris Big Crown collection, which has been in production for over 80 years and still counting. Gloved airmen utilised the oversized crown in the past, whilst the model has been a signature Oris design for many decades. On its 80th anniversary, the brand proudly released a special edition watch to join the Big Crown collection, featuring a 40mm case, fluted bezel, an oversized crown cast in bronze, and a striking green dial.
