Oris Big Crown Pointer Date 80th Anniversary Edition
A design for the ages
On the 80th anniversary of the Oris Big Crown Pointer Date, Oris is proud to present a special edition in bronze with a green dial. No watch tells the historic tale of independent Swiss watchmaker Oris quite like the iconic Big Crown Pointer Date. It’s a potent symbol of Oris’s philosophy, and some say that without it Oris might not enjoy its current status as a leader in Swiss Made mechanical watches.
In 1938, Oris introduced a pioneering watch for pilots. It had an oversized crown so that glove-wearing airmen could easily adjust it, and an unusual complication – a date indicated by a central pointer hand.
Bronze patinas naturally as it oxidizes, so that each watch will take on a unique finish over time. The deep green of the dial also has a natural feel, complementing the bronze case.
