BIG CROWN POINTER DATE 80TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
A design for the ages
On the 80th anniversary of the Oris Big Crown Pointer Date, Oris is proud to present a special edition in bronze with a green dial. No watch tells the historic tale of independent Swiss watchmaker Oris quite like the iconic Big Crown Pointer Date. It’s a potent symbol of Oris’s philosophy, and some say that without it Oris might not enjoy its current status as a leader in Swiss Made mechanical watches.
In 1938, Oris introduced a pioneering watch for pilots. It had an oversized crown so that glove-wearing airmen could easily adjust it, and an unusual complication – a date indicated by a central pointer hand.
To mark the 80th anniversary of this landmark watch, Oris has created the Big Crown Pointer Date 80th Anniversary Edition, a special piece with a 40mm case, fluted bezel and oversized crown cast in bronze, and a striking green dial.
Bronze Patinates Naturally
Bronze patinates naturally as it oxidises, so that each watch will take on a unique finish over time. The deep green of the dial also has a natural feel, complementing the bronze case.
Multi-piece bronze case with bronze screw-in security crown, dark brown leather strap made with sustainably sourced and produced materials, bronze buckle. Water Resistance 5 bar.
