Oris Big Crown Bronze Pointer Date

Warm hues of bronze and brown adorn this new aviation-inspired timepiece

The Oris Big Crown Bronze Pointer Date was conceived in 1938 at a time when pilots required a timepiece with a large crown for easy handling with their flight gloves on. Highly legible dials were also essential so they could make their time calculations at a glance. Eight decades later, this historical model continues to be appreciated for its unique features and design.

In the 1980s, the Oris Big Crown Pointer Date was a big part of Oris’s decision to rebuild the company with only mechanical watches. Rolf Studer, Oris’s Joint Executive Officer, explains: “It had a story, a purpose, and an emotional value that the quartz-powered novelties of the day simply couldn’t compete with. It became an Oris signature and a symbol of the Swiss watch industry’s dramatic revival.”

Following a range of models with red, blue, green, black, and silver dials, this new Big Crown Pointer Date comes with a bronze dial and bronze case that complement large luminescent hands and numerals. The watch is powered by an automatic movement and features the brand’s bi-directional Red RotorTM that is on full view through the sapphire crystal caseback.

The functions include central hours, minutes and seconds, while the date is indicated by a fourth hand with a red-tipped arrow that points to the date around the periphery of the dial.

The Oris Big Crown Bronze Pointer Date celebrates the beauty of Oris’s watchmaking past while being totally in tune with today’s modern trends.
