Independent Swiss watch brand Oris presents Big Crown ProPilot Worldtimer, a watch that can be adjusted to different time zones, simply by rotating the bezel.
This Oris-developed innovation is an update to the Oris Worldtimer launched in 1997 and now marking its 20th anniversary. The original watch featured plus and minus pushers on the side of the case that when pressed adjusted the local time forwards or backwards in one-hour jumps, without the need to pull out the crown or stop the running of the watch. It also featured small seconds, home time and day/night indicators, and an Oris-patented mechanism that meant the date would keep track of the time adjustment, even if that meant going backwards over midnight.
