Oris began making pilot’s watches in the 1910s at the dawn of aviation and has pioneered in the field ever since. The Big Crown, one of Oris’s signature designs, was first introduced in 1938, and continues to inspire the collection today.
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.
