Big Crown – A signature model since 1934 An iconic pilot’s watch Beautifully minimal light blue dial Vintage-inspired pointer date complication Powered by the new hand-wound calibre 473 AN ICONIC PILOT’S WATCH Crafting high performance pilot’s watches since the dawn of aviation in 1910, Oris has been a pioneer in the field ever since. One of the brand’s most iconic designs, the Big Crown was introduced in 1938 and continues to inspire the collection today. The new Big Crown Calibre 473 stays true to the signature Big Crown design, with the addition of a new hand-wound calibre – the brand’s tenth in-house movement in 10 years. TECHNICAL INNOVATION This charming timepiece is presented in a 38mm stainless steel case, with a transparent sapphire crystal caseback and a dark brown leather strap complete with a sophisticated steel butterfly folding clasp. The clasp is equipped with a fine adjustment system which allows it to be easily adjusted as the wrist expands and contracts. The light blue dial is kept beautifully minimal, with Arabic numerals and a small seconds display at 6 o’clock. Adding to the vintage-inspired look, the dial also features a pointer date complication, which points to the date on the dial’s perimeter, allowing the reading of the date at a glance. The new, hand-wound calibre 473 offers power and precision, as well as a five-day power reserve with an indicator on the reverse.
