I always like to keep time and some timepiece designs are so on point. To mark the 80th anniversary of the Big Crown Pointer Date, Oris has introduced an 80th Anniversary Edition with a 40mm case, fluted bezel and oversized crown cast in bronze, and a striking green dial. It’s the third time Oris uses bronze for a special edition.
The Big Crown Pointer Date had been a collection mainstay throughout what became known as the Quartz Crisis, and when Oris came to look for a watch that would reignite interest in the company in the 80’s, the Big Crown Pointer Date was chosen and soon became the centrepiece of Oris’s collection.
Size 40.00 mm (1.575 inches), green dial, indices and numerals coated with Super-LumiNova C1/C3, hour and minute hands filled with Super-LumiNova C1/C3; Sapphire crystal, domed on both sides, anti-reflective coating inside; case Back: Stainless steel, screwed, mineral glass.
