Oris Big Crown Automatic Day Date

Brand new and unused condition Oris Big Crown automatic wristwatch. Genuinely never worn before. It was originally purchased from authorised dealers Jas Debono Jewellers, in Valeletta in 2010 complete with all boxes and papers. The retail price on this watch is £1210. Lovely looking all stainless steel wristwatch with decorated dial and movement.  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 a beautifully decorated dial with a guilloché ring in which the baton markers and the numerals are placed.  It has a day in the outer chapter and the day of the month is indicated by the large hand with the pointer hand at the date at the 3 position. Sapphire crystal and glass display back. The dial is black with silver markings and hands, with luminous filled hands in traditional design. It has a coin edge bezel and of course, the characteristic big crown. Dimensions are 42 mm excluding crown, 48 mm including crown and 45 mm lug to lug and 12 mm thick. Ref: ORS 55. Price is £595
