A watch inspired by the skies; the Oris Big Crown Pro Pilot is Oris’s take on an Aviation inspired watch. The First Oris ‘big crown’ was produced in 1938 and still to this day the Big Crown remains an integral part of the Oris family when you consider its past, present and future.
The Pro Pilot edition of the Big Crown is designed to look and feel ready to take on any aviation mission with its larger 45mm case size and military like features. The high-grade stainless-steel body has a great looking top bezel with a turned finish to look like a propeller, while the case back features mineral glass to see the inner working of the movement.
Readability is obviously key for any aviation or military watch and as such this flat black dial has large numerals and hands. Both the hands and numerals are coated with superluminova; a substance that allows greater visibility in low lights. The dial also showcases the added GMT second time zone complications to the Oris 752, Oris 748, base SW 220-1. Also included on the dial is a second hand sub-dial and date window.
One thing we love about this watch is the textile strap that enhances the militia vibe. The olive colour is a great choice to pair with the black dial. Attached to the strap is the ‘lift’ folding clasp which makes adjusting the watch very easy without causing excessive wear to the strap.
Each Oris watch comes with a branded case as well as a three-year international warranty to cover you against mechanical faults.
