Did everyone have a look at Oris's Big Crown ProPilot X Calibre 115?

The new watch helps celebrate Oris's 115th Anniversary. With just some
of the many details including a 44mm grade 2, and 5 titanium case, 100m
water resistance, sleek skeletonized dial, titanium bracelet, or black leather
strap, Calibre 115 movement, and more.


Some pictures for you...











W&W with even more info...

You're killing me Tom... Take one of these over a Rolex any day and twice on Sunday ! :madgrin: An absolutely beautiful watch with an exquisite movement.

It's an exhibition piece. Not because of the skeletonized dial, that is all too obvious, but the way Oris is moving. More aspirational. Not very practical (hard to read the time) but that's not the point. Apart from being way out of my league, price wise, I'm too much of a traditionalist to even consider such a watch.

You know what could be cool guys?!! ..Maybe there is a chance that at least
some of the ideas could find there way onto a regular, more traditional watch. :thumb:

I mean honestly like the watch, but can imagine that Oris kind of looks at
this one like a concept car. Where a few, or maybe even many details could
eventually show up in some of their regular collections. Will be really cool
to keep on eye, and see if it happens right?!. :cool:


As always the thanks goes to YOU actually ! :)

Not into skeleton dials, I actually like to see what time it is when I look at a dial!

I get the concept car analogy Tom, but concept cars are typically created to gauge public reaction. Sometimes and not always do their features ever make it to production, whereas this watch is a finished product and current retail offering. And offered for $7K. Guess they're letting the consumer decide realtime in a competitive market.

Skeleton dials aren't my bag anyway.

You are making some really phenomenal points Enrico ! :smile1: Much better
than what I was saying with the concept car thing. ..I mean you are
exactly right. ..They are already giving people the chance to own one,
and see if they like the watch, and it's design right now. :eek:

Hopefully down the road we get to see a few of these ideas in a more
affordable model, or models of watches. It doesn't have to be a skeleton
dial though. :bounce:
