Oris Big Crown ProPilot
These Pilot’s Watches Have Been Redesigned for Better Fit and Wearability
Sometimes overshadowed by Oris’s popular collections of dive watches and the like, the brand’s aviation-themed ProPilot has a serious tool watch vibe. Now, it’s most basic and accessible versions are getting some subtle design upgrades for better wearability than ever. Most notably, the new models will have a “slimmer profile,” but more little tweaks help make the design feel even more refined.
The two models to get this treatment are both simple automatic models offering three-hand time-telling using Swiss Sellita movements. The Big Crown ProPilot Big Date is 41mm wide and offers a date window at 3 o’clock, where as the Big Crown ProPilot Big Day Date also offers the day of the week and now comes in a 44mm case. Both still feature a distinctive knurled bezel and crown.
The case, crown, and steel bracelet have all been given a redesign: The case’s new profile is intended to give a slimmer impression — though the brand hasn’t disclosed specific measurements. Each model has options of blue, black, or gray dials and is offered on a steel bracelet or a range of straps, including bands in several new materials to accompany the new cases.
Both models are expected to be priced in line with previous versions — the 41mm Big Crown ProPilot Big Date is priced starting around $1,700 on a strap, while the 44mm Big Crown ProPilot Big Day Date begins at $1,900.
