The latest addition to Oris’s critically acclaimed Big Crown ProPilot line looks every bit at home on the ground as it does at altitude. The new Big Crown ProPilot Day Date is a style-conscious piece that comes on a range of straps so it can be tailored to match a favourite suit, whether of the flight or three-piece variety.
Oris has been making pilot’s watches since 1938 when it introduced the first of its Big Crown family. That watch’s crown was far larger than on a conventional wristwatch, designed so pilots in ice-cold cockpits could wind or adjust the watch without having to take their gloves off.
Today’s Big Crown ProPilot line, introduced in 2014, is the latest expression of that rich tradition. Each watch in the collection features an oversized crown, as well as a coin-edged bezel inspired by jet-engine turbines, open dials with printed, clearly legible Arabic numerals, and Swiss Made mechanical movements.
The difference is in the details. Its bezel is topped by a polished stainless steel ring; its hands are edged in polished nickel; and the anthracite dial has an elegant sunray finish. Combined, these give it a touch of sophistication where most pilot’s watches opt for a more utilitarian look.
The new watch also comes with the choice of straps:a vintage brown leather option with beige stitching; a grey leather strap with a crocodile imprint; a more traditional black leather strap; a grey textile strap; or a brushed stainless steel metal bracelet.
Inside its 45mm brushed stainless steel case is an automatic mechanical movement with day and date functions. The watch has a mineral crystal case back, through which the wearer can see the signature Oris Red Rotor.
The Big Crown ProPilot Day Date will be available from May 2016, priced CHF 1,650.
