Independent Swiss watch manufacturer Oris enhances its aviation inspired ProPilot range with the new Oris Big Crown ProPilot Chronograph GMT, a modern cockpit watch loaded with indispensable flight worthy features.
Combining function with precision the discreet black dial houses a chronograph with the stop second hand as well as the minute and hour counters in red distinguishing clearly the chronograph function and enhancing its legibility. The small second at 9 o’clock remains white corresponding with the minute and hour hand. The hand with the yellow airplane tip reaches out to the outer dial ring to indicate time in another time zone, i.e. home time, on a 24 hour scale.
Crafted from a heavy-duty multi-piece stainless steel case with a matt satin finish, the Oris Big Crown ProPilot Chronograph GMT features a coin edged top ring inspired by the powerful turbine jet engines that propel aircraft into the skies. Case back and crown are reminiscent of an airplane’s turbine jet engine. Oris’ latest flight watch is completed with a textile strap featuring the unique, patented folding clasp based on the design of an aircraft safety belt.
Fusing function with design into a feature-packed timepiece equipped for take-off or landing, this adept timepiece is the perfect partner for the serious world traveller.
