Oris Watches to Gift This Christmas
Tuesday - 21 December 2021
Oris and Christmas go hand-in-hand because the brand’s luxury watches make for the perfect gift for a loved one this festive season. Built to stand the test of time and forged from a selection of premium, long-lasting materials, every Oris watch stands for reliability, accuracy and performance. Over the last year, we have seen the famous Swiss watch brand release some beautiful novelty pieces, as well as those that have joined the manufacturer’s core range. The esteemed Big Crown ProPilot Big Date watch was given an overhaul with a striking, vintage-inspired bronze case, and we also saw the return of the Oris Rectangular watch.
To highlight some of our favourite models released by Oris this year, we’ve created this Christmas gift guide to the best Oris watches 2021. Let’s take a look at what we’ve rounded up for you this holiday season…
Oris Watch Aquis Date Calibre 400 Anthracite Bracelet
Equipped with a movement that sets a new standard in Oris watchmaking, the Oris Aquis Calibre 400 watch is a tool that is equally as sophisticated technically as it is for underwater use. The robust 41.5mm diving watch from Oris is equipped with 300-meter water resistance and features a legible black dial with luminous chunky hour markers and hands. A date aperture can be referenced at 3 o’clock and the watch’s unidirectional rotating bezel, crafted from black ceramic, enables the wearer to track elapsed time underwater by aligning it with the minute hand. Appealing to those who frequently like to take to the water, whether that be on a professional or amateur level, the Oris Aquis Date watch is a rugged dive-ready companion, finished on a stainless steel link bracelet and a security folding clasp with a clever diver’s extension feature that enables the watch to be worn over the top of a wetsuit. The Oris Calibre 400 provides a useful 120-hour power reserve whilst protected behind a see-through sapphire crystal glass caseback, enabling the wearer to admire its performance and traditional decoration through this special rear lens.
Oris Watch Divers Sixty-Five
Oris watches from the Divers Sixty-Five collection are the ultimate dream Christmas gift for those who adore the retro elements of a vintage-inspired wristwatch. Packed with plenty of vintage dive watch design codes, the model is crafted from bronze and stainless steel. A domed anti-reflective sapphire crystal glass front connects to a unidirectional rotating bezel in black, adorned with a 60-minute scale for effortless measuring of elapsed time. This men’s Oris Divers Sixty-Five watch is also 100-meter water resistance and features a screw-down crown and caseback engraved with special markings. Behind this caseback is the Oris 733 Calibre, which produces a 38-hour power reserve and performs at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour. To complete its rugged diver-ready look, this Oris watch for men comfortably secures to the wrist with a stainless steel and bronze bi-colour bracelet, complete with a folding clasp.
Oris Watch Big Crown Pointer Date
The Big Crown Pointer Date watch by Oris is perhaps one of the most collectable of Oris watches from the manufacturer’s esteemed and constantly evolving catalogue. The model measures a 40mm diameter and has been crafted from stainless steel with a crenellated bezel surrounding a stunning deep red dial. The Arabic numeral hour markers and hands on the dial have all been treated with Super-LumiNova material, together with a red-tipped pointer hand that highlights the date ring around the edge of the dial. Ideal for fans of traditional pilot-inspired wristwatches, as well as those who like their watches to convey an added level of functionality, this Oris Big Crown Pointer Date watch is powered by the Oris Calibre 754, whose performance is put on show through a mineral glass caseback. The watch completes its old-world charm with a traditional brown leather strap and a stainless steel buckle.
Oris Big Crown ProPilot Bronze Watch
Another popular Christmas gift idea from the Big Crown collection by Oris is this Big Crown ProPilot watch crafted from bronze – a material that the brand has been experimenting with for many years. Its warming tones, coupled with a fluted bezel and oversized crown, make a particularly attractive Christmas gift idea for a loved one. Super-LumiNova material has been applied to the large visible Arabic numeral hour track and the dial’s accompanying central hour and minute hands. These features are protected by a sapphire crystal glass front, sealed to a 100-meter water-resistant case and a stainless steel caseback to avoid skin discolouration. A bronze screw-in security crown, domed sapphire crystal glass top and tapering lugs all contribute to a refined and elegant watch for wearing every single day of the week. This men’s Oris Big Crown ProPilot bronze watch is powered by the Calibre 751 movement, based on the Sellita SW 220-1 movement. It performs at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour and delivers a power reserve of 38 hours. Completed on its deep olive green textile strap and a bronze folding clasp - the Big crown ProPilot’s striking aesthetics and legible features will be hard to resist this holiday season.
Oris Aquis Date Upcycle Watch
One of the most unique features of the Oris Aquis Date Innovations watch is its one-of-a-kind dial, produced by a PET plastic recycling process surrounded by a 41.5mm stainless steel case. The Aquis Date Upcycle watch joins Oris in making a daily commitment to reducing the world’s ocean plastic crisis, making this an investible and feel-good purchase this year. A unidirectional rotating diver’s bezel with a scratch-resistant grey ceramic insert can be used for measuring elapsed time underwater, whilst inside the watch’s 300-meter water-resistant case is the automatic Calibre 733. The watch is completed on a stainless steel bracelet, securing with a folding clasp and diver’s extension feature, whilst the top of the watch’s sapphire crystal glass front protects the surface of the dial and its luminous hour markers and hands.
