Pro Pilot Coulson 3D Printed 41mm Mens Watch – Limited EditionCategory: Watches
Oris ventures into new territories with aerial firefighters Coulson Aviation and a watch with a 3D printed carbon fibre case produced using an innovative process that appears in watchmaking for the first time. The Coulson Limited Edition has a carbon fibre case produced using a novel 3D printing process. To mark this important partnership between Oris and Coulson Aviation, Oris has created a watch based on the Big Crown Pro Pilot and inspired by the innovation and daring spirit of the two independent companies. Its most striking feature is its fiery, gradient orange dial, a clear symbol of the perilous environments Coulson’s brave pilots rush towards while most are obliged to turn away. Surrounding it is a carbon fibre case produced using an innovative, patented 3D printing process never seen before in watchmaking. Devised by Switzerland’s prestigious ETH Zurich university (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology), it prints carbon fibre and a highgrade polymer developed in aerospace called PEKK simultaneously, weaving them together to create an ultra lightweight, extremely rigid material. The process is so precise that you can fix the material’s pattern, where typically carbon fibre watch cases are random. Completing the high tech, lightweight profile are a grey PVD plated titanium fixed bezel, screw down crown and case back, and a black textile strap. The watch, movement included, weighs just 65 grammes. Inside it is Oris’s equally innovative, highlyanti magnetic five day automatic Calibre 400. Only 1, 000 pieces will be made.
