Do you remember when I last year in June presented you the Oris Big Crown ProPilot Calibre 111? It is a 44 mm pilots watch I personally find very attractive and that is fair-priced. I today invite you to discover the Oris again.

 

This is the watch we are talking about…

There are not many comparable pilot´s watches with an in-house calibre and such a huge power reserve on the market. The only other one I know is the IWC Big Pilot´s Watch. But the latter is priced for 13.500 Euro including 19 % VAT in Germany. So if you are considering to buy a Big Pilot´s watch I recommend you to take a close look at the new Oris Big Crown ProPilot Calibre 111 … In my eyes thats real value for money!

  • Oris is one of my favorite brands I suppose. It must be, I have several of them.

    While I didn’t hold out for this manufacture movement, I was finally able to acquire a Big Crown Pro Day-Date with olive strap and it has become a favorite. The last one I saw in person was sold when I went back to buy it after an operation so when I saw it again, almost a year later, I didn’t hesitate. OK, maybe I hesitated for a minute. (lol)

    Oris does offer incredible value.
