Building on their successful ProDiver range, Swiss watch brand Oris introduces the Oris ProDiver Pointer Moon, the world’s first mechanical watch to indicate both the lunar cycle and the tidal range.
Inspired by their brand ambassador and experienced commercial diver Roman Frischknecht, the Oris ProDiver Pointer Moon is a timepiece specifically designed to meet the demands of the world of professional diving. Previously, no watch on the market offered a way of indicating the tidal range, which is important for professional divers like Frischknecht to know while working.
The Oris ProDiver Pointer Moon indicates the tidal range and lunar cycle at a glance using a unique dial design, removing the need for divers to consult constantly external manuals. It also incorporates Oris’s patented Rotation Safety System, which allows the wearer to keep track of a certain time period using a rotating bezel that can be locked to prevent accidental adjustment, and an automatic helium escape valve. The Oris ProDiver Pointer Moon has a date aperture at 5 o’clock and centralised second, minute and hour displays.
Its titanium case is water resistant to 1,000m, with special metres-feet scale engravings on the screwed case back. For ease of readability for divers the sapphire crystal is domed on both sides and has an inner anti-reflective coating. This innovative new timepiece is available in both the northern and southern hemisphere tide range indication.
The set of the Oris ProDiver Pointer Moon, presented in a special waterproof case, includes a replacement metal bracelet and tools to change the strap.
