Swiss watch brand Oris announces a new limited-edition timepiece inspired by Tycho Brahe, the 16th-century Danish nobleman and astronomer.
Brahe’s accurate astronomical and planetary observations were formalised in the Tychonic system, which theorised that the Sun and Moon orbited the Earth, while the other planets orbited the Sun. The watch bearing his name features a Pointer Moon function, a complication developed in-house by Oris engineers.
