Swiss watch brand Oris unveils an updated version of one of its legendary watches with an updated case design – the classic Rectangular Complication. This model features a redesigned, more ergonomic case, and casts fresh light on brand’s extraordinary story. The new watch is powered by Oris Calibre 582, an automatic based on ETA’s 2671 calibre. Calibre 582 is the successor to Calibre 581, which was launched in 1991 as part of Oris’s mission to revive traditional watchmaking.
Calibre 581 came a few years after Oris had decided to focus entirely on mechanical watches, and epitomised the spirit of innovation in the industry. It had an Oris-developed module that showed the day, date, phases of the moon and a second time zone. That history and tradition is wrapped up in the new Oris Rectangular Complication, a classic, Art Deco-inspired piece that symbolises both the timelessness of Swiss watchmaking, and also Oris’s philosophy to create innovative, high-quality watches at real-world prices.
The watch has a number of features that signal its Swiss heritage: besides its hand-assembled mechanical movement, it also has a hand-polished case, a silver guilloche dial, applied numerals and blue painted hands, filled with Super-LumiNova®.
The blue of the moon phase and hands is complemented by a dark blue genuine leather strap. It will also be available on a stainless steel bracelet.
