Inspired by the skies for over 70 years Swiss watch manufacturer Oris has been producing specialist aviation watches since the launch of its first Oris Big Crown in 1938. Born to satisfy the demands of fighter pilots in Normandy this heroic timepiece has since spawned a whole collection of sky-bound watches. This handsome timepiece features an olive green fabric strap with a stainless steel folding clasp, and a handsome yet practical 45 mm stainless steel case with an attractive knurled bezel and screw-in stainless steel security crown. A transparent case back gives the wearer a fascinating insight into the complex mechanics that power this handsome time piece, while the date window adds an extra layer of functionality. Housed beneath the domed sapphire crystal with a handy anti-reflective coating on each side, the large black dial is simple and easy to read with large sword shaped hands laced with a luminous coating. Water resistant up to 300 meters, this is a watch that is as robust as it is attractive.
