Holstein, Switzerland-With the rebirth of the Oris Grand Crown series, the natural nostalgic material of bronze is also shown on the 36mm large crown analog date watch A different color.
Oris and aviation have a long history. Oris was founded in 1904 at the beginning of the aviation industry. As early as the early 1910s, Oris began manufacturing a variety of aviation pocket watches. In 1917, Oris launched the brand’s first aviation watch, which has a unique timing insurance design. The time adjustment operation can be performed by pressing the button located at 2 o’clock on the case; in 1938, the iconic large crown The advent of the watch, its oversized crown makes it easy for pilots to operate the watch while wearing leather gloves. Today, Oris watches in the aerospace series continue the tradition and are full of creativity, and are popular with pilots worldwide.
The bronze case of the large crown analogue watch produces a unique oxidation effect over time
The large crown analogue watch has always been Oris’ iconic product. Its practicality and innovation are the core values of this Swiss independent watchmaking brand. In the early 1980s, the big crown watch witnessed a reversal of the brand of Oris, which specialized in mechanical watches, after the quartz crisis. The sleek, streamlined shape, the classic coin-shaped bezel, the impressive large crown, the simple dial design, and the unique pointer calendar display make it the most recognizable Oris timepiece at the time.
Oris designers have retained these classic elements in the process of reshaping the big crown watch, and introduced modern watchmaking technology and aesthetic requirements. Take the table mirror as an example, the convex arc shows the retro charm of half a century ago, the performance and texture of sapphire, and it gives a new touch.
Sapphire ‘bubble mirror’ is the perfect combination of nostalgia and technology
The use of bronze material further releases the nostalgia of the large crown watch. With the passage of time, the appearance of bronze will gradually form an oxide layer, and the color and texture of the oxidation are closely related to the humidity of the environment and the pH value of the wearer. In the end, every bronze watch will be as unique as its owner.
Just as eye-catching as the 36mm bronze case of the watch is its special dial coloring, this patina-like light green comes from the architectural color set of modern master LeCorbusier. The combination of light green and bronze can complement each other. Adhering to Oris’s strategy of producing only mechanical watches, the large crown analogue bronze watch is equipped with a Swiss-made automatic mechanical movement that drives the rose gold-plated hour, minute, central seconds and unique calendar hands. To highlight the warm texture of the watch, the designer matched it with a light brown vegetable tanned leather strap. The large crown analogue bronze watch with hands, records the date change with the hands, let the bronze tell the story of time.
