Oris Oskar Bider Limited Edition Watch Review
Thursday - 13 June 2013
In July 1913, Bider became the first flyer to cross the Alps, at the age of just 22. He set a new altitude record during the flight, as he piloted his Bleriot XI monoplane up to 3,600 metres to fly over the Jungfraujoch ridge.
Oris has now launched a new watch to celebrate 100 years since Bider's Alpine crossing.
The Oris Oskar Bider Limited Edition is limited to 300 pieces, and is presented in a wooden box. It has an Oris Big Crown case measuring 42 mm, and the case back features an engraved tribute to Oskar Bider.
The watch has vintage-style domed plexi glass and a black guilloche dial, and the indices and hands are filled with SuperLumiNova. It is powered by the Oris calibre 774, with a chronograph function and a date window at 3 o'clock. The Oskar Bider Limited Edition is water resistant to 3 bar and comes with a dark brown leather strap.
