The architecture of the modern timepiece has become undeniably complex, adverse to intuitive use, and subjectively over-engineered. Not only have these contemporary variants exacerbated wristwear’s lurid departure from its minimalistic progenitors, but they’ve also neglected the importance of personal connection; a relationship between the wearer, and the worn. To remind us of the partnership between the watch and the wrist, Oris created the Big Crown ProPilot X Calibre 115.

To date, the Big Crown ProPilot X Calibre 115 is the most “Oris” watch ever created. It harkens back to the company’s historic past and ponders horology’s dismissal of the authentic experience that was once afforded by wristwear’s most prolific examples. In conclusion, Oris’ engineers looked to the company’s most relatable subject for inspiration: the simplicity, and transparency, of nature. Channeling the essence of the outdoors, the watchmaker opted to make the ProPilot X entirely skeletonized, laying bare the watch’s inner workings. A hand-wound, 10-day power reserve accents the symbiotic relationship between the mechanical device and its wearer, while a sleek domed sapphire acts as a window to the subtleties of the company’s quintessential timepiece. A powerful skeletonized Calibre 115 movement, dial, and titanium case back serve to mediate the watch’s reliable internals. The Oris Big Crown ProPilot X Calibre 115 is available in both leather ($7,200) and metal ($7,600) via the company’s website.
