Oris’s Eagerly Awaited Big Crown Propilot Calibre 111 Is Available Since May In Showrooms

Swiss watch brand Oris has announced that the Big Crown ProPilot Calibre 111 is available to purchase in Oris- approved watch showrooms all over the world.

Announced in 2015, the Oris Big Crown ProPilot Calibre 111 integrates Oris’s much-heralded in-house Calibre 111 movement into a stylish, 44mm stainless steel pilot’s watch that subtly reflects the design of a jet engine turbine. This is the first time Calibre 111 has appeared in the ProPilot collection, and the only watch in the ProPilot collection to come on a genuine Louisiana crocodile leather strap.
Calibre 111 features a 10-day power reserve, a non-linear power reserve indicator and a date, a unique combination of complications in a Swiss Made mechanical watch. It was designed entirely in-house by Oris engineers and makes its debut in the industrialised version of Calibre 110,introduced for the company’s 110th anniversary in 2014. Both signify Oris’s ambition to take back watchmaking and to reignite the company’s long-standing watchmaking tradition.

As with its predecessor, its 10-day power reserve is fuelled by a single barrel, the standout feature of the movement’s architecture. Its other landmark function, the Oris-patented nonlinear power reserve indicator, shows the remaining power reserve in ever-greater detail as the time to rewind the watch approaches.

Oris only makes mechanical watches. Each watch is produced according to a philosophy born with the company’s founders in 1904 – to make the best possible watch at the best possible price. As such, the company works with Switzerland’s finest manufacturers to produce parts, and with expert watchmakers and craftsmen for finishing and assembly. Oris has control over every step of the process and guarantees the quality of every watch that leaves its Hölstein factory.

The Oris Big Crown ProPilot Calibre 111 is a landmark watch powered by an historic calibre, and a symbol of Oris’s ‘real watches for real people’ mantra. It is on sale now, priced CHF 5,400.
