Oris Big Crown Automatic Chronograph
Used but mint condition Oris Big Crown automatic chronograph. Lovely looking all stainless steel wristwatch with decorated dial and movement and excellent value for money. The idea of the big crown was so that pilots could operate the watches using flying gloves so they did not have to take their gloves off to wind the watch or to set the time. This is a tradition carried on today but really more for authenticity purposes, and the big crown marks Oris’s association with air travel, and today the big crown characterises Oris watches. Oris have a long history and have been associated with quality watch making since 1904. This one is distinctive looking with an old fashioned dial and hands giving a vintage appeal about it. This vintage look is enhanced by the gold hands and indices against the silver dial. It has a serrated bezel and polished case and of course, the characteristic big crown and acrylic crystal. The acrylic crystal is another feature giving rise to the vintage appeal. It is water resistant to 30 metres. Sweeping central seconds chronograph hand.
