Oris are a watchmaker with a fine history in the world of horology and whilst they may not be quite as well known as the likes of Breitling, IWC and TAG Heuer, the quality of their timepieces really is second to none and that’s something that is abundantly clear in one of their latest offerings, the stunning Oris Big Crown Pro-Pilot Altimeter Watch above.
This aviation themed timepiece is a great looking and highly resilient construct which has the rather impressive feature of being the first automatic wristwatch with a mechanical altimeter. Needless to say, this is a feature that is best suited to pilots but even if you don’t spend your time piloting planes, it is equally useful for those of a hiking or mountaineering persuasion and just plain cool, truth be told.
We’re big fans of the bold and uncompromising aesthetic of the Oris Big Crown ProPilot Altimeter Watch here at Coolector HQ and if you’re an aviation aficionado and want a new, top of the range timepiece for your wrist, there can be few better choices. Check out a few more shots of this mightily impressive watch below:
There are plenty of features to be found on the Oris Big Crown ProPilot Altimeter Watch that will leave both aviation fans and your regular watch-wearer impressed which includes a 100m water resistance, an SW200 movement, 47mm steel watch face and large dual crowns for a highly distinctive finish.
A fantastically designed timepiece and one that is made all the more impressive by not having an eye-wateringly high price tag. We massive fans of aviation style watches here at Coolector HQ and this one from the well-regarded Swiss watchmakers, Oris, is definitely one of the best we’ve seen of late and it is due for release this September.
