The new Oris Big Crown Pointer Date 40mm watch flaunts a re-designed case, curved silver dials with guilloche finish and a smoother metal bracelet.
The ‘Pointer Calendar’ feature is one of Oris’s signature functions, and has been a mainstay of the Oris collection, first displayed in 1938.
The initial Oris Pointer Calendar displayed the date via a central hand with a unique red-arrow-tipped ‘pointer’ and an outer ring marked with the dates. This feature became one of Oris’s signature designs and, although the arrow has morphed into a crescent shape, has remained largely unchanged over 70 years later.
The second key Oris design displayed by this watch is the Big Crown, which was initially intended to accommodate the needs of gloved aviators, but today serves a much more aesthetic purpose.
The latest version of Oris’s ‘Big Crown’ feature, showcased by the Oris Big Crown Pointer Date, has shock- and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, with the hour markers and hands coated in Super-LumiNova® for enhanced night-time visibility.
With the royal makeover of the Big Crown Pointer Date Oris is adding another highlight in its rich tradition of quality watch making.
