The popularity of the Re-Issue watches, one of the most trending topics of watch industry, is not over. At the Baselworld 2017 fair, Oris, which introduced many new models, is at the forefront of companies that closely follow this trend. The brand’s latest release in the Re-Issue concept is the Oris Chronoris.
Approximately 50 years after the introduction of the original model, Oris introduced a modern re-issue of its very first “stop seconds” watch. The model is named after the combination of chronograph and the brand name. It was released in 1970.
The new model is offered in a 39mm diameter case made of stainless steel. The case features a pair of winding crowns. The first one adjusts the time keeping and date functions while the second one operates the inner bezel. Equipped with a domed shape sapphire crystal on the front, the case is water resistant to 100 meters.
The dial of the model features three tones of gray accompanied with orange accents. The harmonious use of different color tones improves the readability of the model which is also very good in dark environments thanks to the Super Luminova filling. The date function, which is the only extra feature except time keeping, is located at 3 o’clock.
Oris Chronoris Date is powered by the Caliber Ref. 733. Based on the Sellita SW 200-1, which we often see in entry and intermediate Swiss automatic watches, the mechanism offers a 38-hour power reserve when fully wound.
The new model is offered with three strap options as a stainless steel bracelet, a brown leather strap and a gray NATO strap.
Oris Chronoris Date It is a very good choice for those who want to go back to the 1970’s and feel the vintage mood with today’s technology and quality. The list price of the model is set at 1,600 CHF for the NATO strap version and 1,800 CHF for the steel bracelet version.
