The new Oris Artelier Complication is the latest interpretation of one of Oris’s defining movements. Few movements epitomise the spirit of innovation and creativity that has made Oris one of the world’s most recognised and celebrated watch companies so well as the Complication. This year, it returns in a modernised version of the Artelier to inspire a new generation of mechanical watch enthusiasts. The new watch has a tapered, streamlined silhouette and an Art-Deco-inspired guilloché dial. It is available with either blue or gold accents.
The Complication watch featured an automatic movement with day, date, moon phase and second time zone indications. This suite of useful yet romantic functions made the watch an essential tool for stylish, sophisticated international travellers. It has been part of the Oris collection ever since. Today, 26 years after the original Complication, Oris has introduced it into a new version of the Artelier. Oris’s designers updated the Artelier collection, giving it a sleeker, lighter, more tapered feel in keeping with the tastes of contemporary Oris customers. The new watch also has an elegant, Art-Decoinspired guilloché dial that pointed to Oris’s deep admiration for the art of traditional watchmaking.
