PRACTICAL EVERY DAY
Be on time for your appointment with style thanks to a useful feature that can be set quicker than the alarm on your smartphone.
Since 1938, Oris has been supplying pilots with watches featuring an oversized crown, making it easy to use even when wearing gloves. Over time, this element has become a design signature that can now be found on the watches in two of the brand’s collections. One of them, the Big Crown ProPilot, is noticeable for the presence of some practical instruments. The new Alarm Limited Edition, launched at the last Baselworld, continues this tradition by including an alarm, as its name suggests. The alarm can be set in 10-minute increments using a second crown between 3 and 4 o’clock. By turning the crown, you can move the central hand with an arrow tip to the time of your choice in a central disc with a circular counter. In this sub-dial, a yellow marker also indicates the date. The rest of the time information is displayed in the traditional way with the help of two hands making their way around Arabic numerals coated in Super-LumiNova®. The contrast set up against the black dial makes for excellent readability in all lighting conditions.
The watch’s 44mm-wide steel case comes with a brown leather strap. And to highlight the exclusive aspect of this limited edition of 250 pieces, it comes in a superb wooden gift box.
