Oris Big Crown ProPilot 40th Squadron Limited Edition

Oris presents the 40th Squadron Limited Edition, a watch that celebrates a new partnership with 40th Squadron Heli, the Belgian Air Force search and rescue team.

The squadron was formed in 1974, and in nearly five decades of service has saved countless lives. Oris honours the squadron with this limited edition version of the Big Crown ProPilot, a 45.00 mm stainless steel watch coated in grey PVD.

The model’s military-inspired detailing reflects the orange, green and beige livery of the Sea King helicopters the 40th Squadron operates, and the case back is engraved with the squadron’s insignia.

The 40th Squadron watch is powered by an automatic mechanical movement that provides it with big day and date indications, it comes on a military green fabric strap, and it’s water-resistant to 10 bar (100 metres). Only 500 pieces will be made.
