A design for the ages On the 80th anniversary of the Oris Big Crown Pointer Date, Oris is proud to present a special edition in bronze with a green dial. No watch tells the historic tale of independent Swiss watchmaker Oris quite like the iconic Big Crown Pointer Date. It?s a potent symbol of Oris?s philosophy, and some say that without it Oris might not enjoy its current status as a leader in Swiss Made mechanical watches. In 1938, Oris introduced a pioneering watch for pilots. It had an oversized crown so that glove-wearing airmen could easily adjust it, and an unusual complication ? a date indicated by a central pointer hand. To mark the 80th anniversary of this landmark watch, Oris has created the Big Crown Pointer Date 80th Anniversary Edition, a special piece with a 40mm case, fluted bezel and oversized crown cast in bronze, and a striking green dial. Bronze Patinates Naturally Bronze patinates naturally as it oxidises, so that each watch will take on a unique finish over time. The deep green of the dial also has a natural feel, complementing the bronze case. Multi-piece bronze case with bronze screw-in security crown, dark brown leather strap made with sustainably sourced and produced materials, bronze buckle. Water Resistance 5 bar.
