THE MOVEMENT CONTINUES
Oris’ arsenal of patents and in-house movements continues to grow from strength to strength.
Oris has long boasted a fine tradition of creating tough-as-nails movements that get the job done, and the newest addition to its family, the in-house Calibre 111, is no exception to this rule. This manual-winding movement showcases the date at 9 o’clock, boasts an impressive 10-day power reserve and features Oris’ patented nonlinear power-reserve indicator. Like many of the brand’s other in-house movements, the design codes of the Calibre 111 are decidedly no-nonsense and utilitarian in nature, a nod to the brand’s heritage of manufacturing timepieces on an industrial scale. The Calibre 111 makes itself known in four models: two in 43mm stainless steel cases and the other pair with 43mm 18K rose gold cases. The stainless steel model is available in either a silver- grey or sunray black gold dial, with the rose gold iteration offering the options of either an opaline silver-gold or maroon dial.
Oris was one of the first Swiss watch brands to begin manufacturing timepieces on an industrial scale.
