Oris Big Crown ProPilot Altimeter Watch

Dec 4, 2019

The Swiss team at Oris is well known for their beautifully crafted timepieces, and now they’re looking to introduce a “first” to the world of watches. The Oris Big Crown ProPilot Altimeter is the world’s first automatic watch with a built-in altimeter, and boy is it beautiful.

Sure the timepiece was designed with pilots in mind, but we think the watch’s ability to both tell time and specific altitude at a glance could be beneficial for those who enjoy everything from climbing to mountaineering – or just happen to be flying frequently. Nestled within the 47mm stainless steel crown is a yellow-clad dial displaying the current altitude. There is also a built in barometer used to determine/display atmospheric pressure. The watch is water resistant up to 100 meters, displays altitude in feet or meters, and comes in your choice of canvas, leather or chain link straps. [Purchase]
