Oris Big Crown ProPilot Altimeter – a ticking sensation for the wrist.

 

The above mentioned aspects are covered by an Oris patent i.e. the multi-function adjustment venting crown, the co-axial layout of the watch and altimeter movements, including a skeletonised movement holder, and the carbon fibre altimeter hand.

 

These are pictures of the barometric mechanism as it is integrated in the watches case…

  • I had just bought the Oris Aquis Depth Gauge, not because I am a diver, but merely because I liked the watch and its features and I also feel that you get a lot of watch for a very reasonable price…
    I feel exactly the same about this Big Crown Pro Pilot Altimeter, so I think this one will join my collection in the fall…

  • Oris is producing some nice watches. This one is truly a work watch, too big to wear to the pub I think. Having an altimeter watch would be good for parachutists and for pilots to check the accuracy of their aircraft altimeters before adjusting them for local geographical conditions.

  • This is a fantastic watch. Oris has been doing so finely these days. I love the brand, and their watches considering their price are fantastic. They have a very nice collection of dive watches which I truly admire. To come up with a pilot watch with an altimeter function such as this a huge accomplishment. That watch is a steal for that price. Kudos to Oris for being so creative these days. Their depth gauge diver has also a very clever depth-measuring system. Their 110 limited edition model has a sweet in-house movement with an amazing power reserve in a single barrel. I’m really looking forward to their future models. They have been a sponsor of Williams F1 team for year. For 2014 they have replaced TAG Heuer and have become Audi’s Endurance Racing timing sponsor. I see a very bright future for the brand.

  • Yes, I agree: chapeau Oris!
    It’s a great achievement to put a mechanical altimeter in a wristwatch. And the retail price of CHF 3.300 makes it even more stunning.
    Thanks for showing us, Alex!

  • Really nice watch for the price. I’m very interested to see where Oris goes in the next couple of years. In North America, a lot of attention (and marketing money) is on Tudor right now as satisfying a price-point that Tag Heuer and Omega are leaving. It seems like Oris potentially could give them some healthy competition.

    • Oris is doing a great job no doubt and they will continue to surprise us… Tudor and many others should take Ulrich Herzog and all his team very serious 🙂

  • This is a very impressive engineering achievement. And the price is extremely reasonable, considering the features and quality offered.
    I want one!

    Sincere Regards
