Oris’ Latest Propilot Lives Up To Its Name By Honoring An Elite Flight School

Mar 10, 2021

Category: Style

The Big Crown Propilot from Oris has long been one of the most capable and best-looking traditional pilot’s watches around, so it makes perfect sense that the Swiss watchmaker has partnered with one of the world’s most elite flight schools, Tactical Leadership Programme, on the limited edition Big Crown Propilot TLP.

Based in Albacete, Spain, TLP is also known as the Pilot School of NATO, and it’s a joint international military organization that prepares pilots of the NATO Allied Coalition Forces for missions around the globe. The watch is honoring the institution in a number of ways: the green dial is inspired by TLP pilots’ flight overalls, the beige dial text comes from the eagle in TLP’s logo, and the strap is made of Ventile — a high-performance textile that was invented during WWII for British Royal Air Force pilots. Oris is even going a step further in their partnership by reserving bespoke models of the watch specifically for TLP graduates that will have their name and program year on the caseback. And if you’re not a TLP graduate, don’t worry, you can still pick up a civilian version of the Oris Big Crown Propilot TLP Limited Edition for $2,400.
