The latest jazz watch from Oris pays homage to the great Australian jazz musician and multi-instrumentalist James Morrison.
Born in 1962, James is also a composer and the founder of the James Morrison Academy of Music, or AoM, which opened in 2015 offering degree courses in jazz performance. Jazz fans will recognise James first as a trumpeter, and it’s this instrument that is most closely linked to the watch created in his name.
The watch is an automatic time-only piece and features a stunning blue gradient ‘dégradé’ dial and golden hands and indices. The central seconds hand counterbalance is shaped like the finger hook of a trumpet.
The case back is engraved with the academy logo (a trumpet) and the limited edition number. The watch is limited to 1,234 pieces.
