Oris Big Crown X1 Watch Review
Wednesday - 15 February 2012
On 14 May 1947 the Bell X1 made the first manned supersonic flight. It broke the sound barrier and made its way into the history books.
Oris’s new Big Crown X1 is a homage to that achievement. A spokesperson for Oris watches explained:
The watch’s case also has a gun metal coloured PVD coating to replicate the copper colour of the Bell X1 plane. The re-set pusher is marked with an X and the start stop pusher features a 1 in a further nod the watch’s namesake’s title.
