Oris introduces next-generation Big Crown ProPilot Timer GMT. The high functioning new watch features an updated ProPilot case, now slimmed down to sit more elegantly on the wrist.
Its headline feature is its GMT function, which provides a second time zone via a red-tipped central hand, but it also offers a bi-directional rotating bezel for timing events, and a fabric strap option made of Ventile, a Swiss Made weather-resistant woven cotton fabric first developed for the British Royal Air Force during the Second World War.
The watch’s robust 44.00 mm stainless steel case accommodates a clean, open dial with large applied numerals that can be read at a glance while piloting an aircraft. Among the watch’s many details is an upgraded version of Oris’s iconic ‘Lift’ seat-belt-inspired clasp, which no longer needs to be folded to be secured.
