Oris Big Crown Pointer Date, New Model with Deep Red Dial

Oris presents a new Big Crown Pointer Date version with a deep red dial.

The rebirth of Oris’s iconic Big Crown Pointer Date is symbolic of both the independent Swiss watchmaker’s rich watchmaking heritage and also the broader revival of simpler, more traditional watch styles.

The story behind Oris’s most celebrated model begins in 1938 when it was introduced for pilots. The oversized crown meant the watch could be easily adjusted even when wearing gloves. Its pointer date function has become an Oris signature and here sits over a deep red dial. This model has a 40mm case and comes on a vintage brown leather strap.
