Oris have created a reputation over the last few years for their impeccable bronze special edition watches. On the 80th anniversary of the Oris ‘Big Crown Pointer Date’ Oris announced the latest special edition in commemoration to their most historic wristwatch. A sublime combination of bronze with a cool green dial, this watch certainly has an aura of something special.
Some say that without the big crown pointer date, Oris might not enjoy its current status as a leader in Swiss made mechanical watches. The pointer date function was first introduced in 1938 and remains a symbol of the brand to this day, an unusual complication that highlights the date effective by a central pointer hand. As with all big crown watches, the crown is oversized to allow airmen to easily adjust the settings whilst wearing gloves.
A 40mm case is cast in bronze with a fluted bezel that will naturally patina over time. The bronze oxidises, meaning no two watches will look the same having their own unique look over time, as the bronze forms its own colouration with flecks of green and brown. We love the way Oris have developed their skills of casting bronze cases and find that the green dial of this watch is a fantastic addition to the overall look.
The watch is powered by an Oris 754, base SW 200-1, Oris believe in the true art form of watch making with none of their products featuring battery movements.
Complete with a three-year international guarantee and presentation box, this watch is water resistant to 100 meters. Equipped to the watch is an aged feel dark brown leather strap with bronze buckle.
