This WatchWe have here a super stylish Oris Big Crown with a crisp black dial. The stand-out, white, luminous, Arabic numerals have an Art Deco styling that we absolutely adore. Railway-style tracking sits on the outer rim of the dial for the minutes. The inner ring of the dial has the day function at 12 o'clock and the date function at 6, where the dial is signed 'Oris, Swiss Made.' The dial is also signed 'Automatic' and '25 Jewels' at 10 and 2 o'clock, respectively.
Oris was founded in 1904 by two men, Paul Cattin and Georges Christian. The name comes from a brook in the Swiss town of Hölstein. In a short span of time they became the largest employer in Hölstein. By 1929, they had a total of six factories and at the end of the 1960s, Oris became one of the largest watch companies in the world, producing approximately 1.2 million timepieces a year. The 'Big Crown' was introduced in 1938 to be used by pilots who wore thick leather gloves and needed a bigger crown for making adjustments.
This watch comes fully serviced by our on-site workshop and with a 12 month, non-waterproof service cover.
What we think
