Making Rough Edges Luxurious

This Is the New Raw Skeletonized Oris ProPilot

September 23, 2019 Sponsored By

The Big Crown ProPilot X Calibre 115 is the future of Oris — but by no means devoid of its rich legacy. When concepting this new timepiece, the design team was inspired by the rich nature of the Waldenburg Valley — which has been Oris’ home since it was founded in 1904. With the acknowledgments to the roots of this fiercely independent brand, the 44mm case is made of titanium — which is an interesting story in itself. Titanium is one of nature’s most lightweight metals, yet is incredibly strong and durable. It’s high-tech and low-tech at the same time, and speaks to the uninhibited future of Oris. This groundbreaking timepiece also lays bare Oris’ historic watchmaking roots with its fully skeletonized movement, which opens up the 10-day power reserve and non-linear power reserve indicator to reveal how they work. The Big Crown ProPilot X Calibre 115 is a major achievement, a perfect synergy of design and nature.
