— The new Oris Big Crown 1917 is based on an early pock­et­watch-con­verted 1917 pi­lots’ wrist­watch from the brand's mu­seum. It mea­sures 40 mm in di­am­e­ter and comes with wirein­spired lugs and a large onion crown that gives it its “Big Crown” moniker. Even the “Oris” logo on the dial is vin­tage-style.

Pow­er­ing the watch is the Oris Cal­iber 732 (a con­verted Sel­lita SW 200-1) with 38hour power re­serve, and boast­ing an un­usual 2 o’clock pin-lever mech­a­nism. is re­quires the wearer to hold down the pin and then turn the crown to ad­just the time, as com­pared to hav­ing to pull out the crown to do the same. e watch is lim­ited to (ap­pro­pri­ately) 1,917 pieces; price is $2,400.
