Oris Blue Eagles Limited Edition

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of their aviation partner, the Blue Eagles Helicopter Display Team, Oris presents the Blue Eagles Limited Edition. Based on the watches from the BC4 aviation collection this watch is just as spectacular as the team’s displays. The shape of the case is unmistakably Oris BC4 but this model is bigger, bolder and the top ring and case back are coated in black DLC for a stand out look. The stainless steel case centre is silver, giving the watch a distinctive two colour, sandwich construction.

The full 24-hour display is a first for Oris and offers an invaluable full overview of the time. This central display is made possible by the new Cal. 653 movement developed by Oris. The day and night zones are marked in black and white for maximum readability. The second time zone is displayed on the moveable inner dial ring operated by the vertical crown at 2 o’clock. The Oris Quick Lock Crown system prevents accidental adjustments in a world where split second timing is essential.

Although limited to just 1969 pieces, this is where the limitations of the Oris Blue Eagles Limited Edition end. A genuine pilots’ watch: practical, robust and ready for action 24-hours a day. Just like the pilots who inspired it.
