The Oris Big Crown is the latest in a series of watches originally created for pilots by the brand since 1938. Designed to be used with thick aviator's gloves (before the availability of heated and pressurised cockpits), the big crown made the watch easier to operate. The modern design takes inspiration from the vintage originals with retro features like the coin-edged bezel and complications like the pointer date.

ORIS

For a watch brand, Oris is remarkably young. "Only" founded in 1904, it is based in Hölstein, rather than the traditional watchmaking hotspots of the Vallée de Joux or the "Jura triangle".

Throughout most of the 20th Century, Oris did spectacularly well and soon became one of the largest producers of wristwatches in Switzerland. When the Quartz Crisis hit, however, Oris' position as a more affordable brand meant it was amongst the most heavily affected. Like many other struggling brands, it was purchased by ASUAG, one of the Swatch Group's predecessors.

In 1982, Oris became independent again and refocused on mechanical watches, ending production of quartz-powered watches altogether. Since then, Oris has been renowned for producing high-quality Swiss watches at a relatively affordable price point, made possible through its use of ebauche movements from manufacturers like ETA. Today, however, Oris has once again begun introducing in-house movements with the handwound Caliber 110 and automatic Caliber 400, both featuring modern technology and design.
