Oris Royal Flying Doctor Service Limited Edition II Watch Review
Thursday - 11 May 2017
Oris revisit their collaboration with Australia’s iconic aeromedical service for the second time to launch the stunning Royal Flying Doctor Service Limited Edition II. The instrument uniquely hosts a pulsometer scale, which measures a patient’s pulse; a vital device that could save a life becoming a trustworthy wrist companion for doctors providing medical care. Limited to 2000 pieces, the Oris design will proudly support the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) via sales of the exclusive timepiece.
The Limited Edition sits in the Big Crown line up; a collection that has a long heritage with the first design debuting in 1938 boasting an oversized crown (hence the name) with gloved airmen in mind. An apt collection for the new release to join with the Royal Flying Doctor Service serving the skies for decades - next year will mark their 90th anniversary.
The extraordinary fleet consists of 68 aircraft with statistics showing that in 2016 the RFDS made more than 280,000 patient contacts; a crucial service that assist rural Australia, aeromedical transports and telehealth consultations. Through supporting the aero-medical service, the Oris Limited Edition II is extremely functional to assist the doctors.
The clear, concise dial guarantees legibility with a 44 mm diameter that leaves room for the oversized white numbers, indices and hands; the time is certainly easy to read against the black background. The pulsometer is easy to distinguish with the orange shade that contrasts again against the dial colour. Framed in a stainless steel case and finished with a brown leather strap, the new edition works in perfect harmony.
The Oris Watch Royal Flying Doctor Service Limited Edition II understands its responsibility to serve in a precise, reliable and legible way.
