In 1998, Oris celebrated the 60th anniversary of its legendary pointer calendar watch movement. To mark this milestone, the company presented a jubilee watch edition featuring an 18-carat rose-gold case with pointer calendar movement. Limited to only 150 pieces, each one is individually numbered from 001/150 to 150/150.
This precision mechanical timepiece with automatic chronometer movement also carried an official rating certificate. Every watch in the limited edition is individually numbered on the 18-carat rose gold case. The 37mm diameter watch is water resistant to a depth of 30 metres.
The limited edition series number xxx/150 is engraved on the 18-carat gold case at 6 o’ clock. The crown is in solid gold with a double security gasket. The embossed case back is fixed with four screws. A scratchproof sapphire crystal curves over the silvered dial with a small second dial, gold indices and “Cannelure” decor. The date display is by means of a red pointer calendar, arrow-shaped as in the original model of the Oris calendar watch.
The Oris Pointer Calendar (641 7498 60 61 LS) with genuine croco leather strap and solid-gold buckle was presented as an exclusive model in a hand-crafted wooden box with engraved and individually numbered brass plate.
The ORIS Pointer Calendar limited edition (1938 – 1998) houses the Oris automatic calibre 641, a chronometer certified variant of calibre 644 (base ETA 2836-2). This self winding movement has a power reserve of 38 hours. It features 27 jewels, Incabloc, Glucydur balance, 28’ 800 A/h (4 Hz) beating rate, fine timing device and stop-second, centre hand for minutes, subsidiary second at 9 h, window date, and date corrector.
