From Cockpit to Daily Commute

Fly Around the Clock with Oris’ New Pilot Watch

July 23, 2019 Briefings By

Oris has been making mechanical watches lauded by watch enthusiasts for the past 115 years. The brand is one of the last Swiss watch companies independently owned and operated, and all of its timepieces are made in Hölstein, Switzerland. Aviation has been a big part of Oris’ heritage all the while, making its first pilot’s watch in the early 1910s. The latest in that high flying tradition is the Oris Big Crown ProPilot Calibre 114. This pilot’s timekeeper is also the first watch to carry the independent Swiss company’s in-house developed Calibre 114 movement, which features a ten-day power reserve, a non-linear power reserve indicator and a 24-hour second time zone. The Big Crown ProPilot Calibre 114 comes in a few different strap and bracelet options, so it will be simple to find the one that works best for you — even if you never step foot in a cockpit.
