After the race and the planes have landed, I visited the hangar with the ORIS CEO of America, VJ Geronimo, where we could see the plane up close and get a chance to chat with the ORIS team mechanics and the pilot…

My most recent new watch was an Oris Aquis Titan Small Second Ceramic. Before discussing the watch itself I’d like to discuss how I came upon it. Watch enthusiasts really need a 12 step program. We are hardwired to always think about watches, our best bet is to channel our addiction to timepieces properly. Watches are where my brain wanders to during supposed “down time.”
If you recognize this new limited edition Oris watch as familiar, that is because it is. The new Air Racing Edition III watch is based on the very popular Oris BC3 watch collection – a handsome tool-style watch with a high level of refinement and under-the-radar-personality…
While we are enduring fans of all things “dive + Oris”, their racing-inspired watches have always been both a great deal and great looking. This new limited edition Calobra model for 2013 is a shining example of how Oris does motorsports-themed watches right.
There’s just something fun about watching cars racing against the clock, sliding through (generally) unpaved surfaces. And that’s the sport that this Oris model is commemorating – rally racing.
Capillary-style depth gauges are nothing new or particularly advanced, but they are simple and effective. Oris has managed to design one into one of its dive watches.
Continuing their relationship with deep going free diver Carlos Coste, Oris produces another limited edition dive watch for the world record holder. This new watch is the Oris Carlos Coste Limited Edition Cenote Series timepiece – and will be offered as a set of 2000 pieces. Coste just completed a new dive record by diving […]
The GMT version of the updated Oris BC3 comes as a limited edition done for the Oris Big Crown Sky Racing team. Why does “Big Crown” need to be in that term? I know that Big Crown is a line if watches from Oris, but does that mean there are other Oris Sky Racing teams? […]
Usually Oris “Big Crown” watches are rather retro. This one isn’t as retro visually and feels like something a helicopter pilot would have worn during the Vietnam era, or even today. Though none of that is what the watch is based on – at least through name. Oris opted to dedicate this new watch to […]
Oris continues their classy “Complication” watch collection with the Artix. Easy on the eyes, and available with a six-link steel metal bracelet or leather strap. It is a graceful creation, and offers a decent mechanical annual calendar watch (with a symmetrical dial layout) at a reasonable price. With more and more watches like this coming […]
Based on the good ol’ Oris BC4 watch, comes this special limited edition version that was made for, and tested by the French 4th Special Forces Helicopter Regiment (4ème Regiment d’Helicoptères des Forces Speciales). These are one of the main helicopter regiment guys in France. Would it be a good idea for anyone to make […]
Continuing their partnership with the Williams F1 team, Oris has released a new motor sport watch for 2010 that is likely the nicest yet when it comes to a watch made for Williams. This is at least the fourth watch to come from the partnership, and it looks really nice in mostly black with a […]
This is the new limited edition Oris sub seconds diver made to help out the Great Barrier Reef. Each watch that is sold will have Oris donating 50 Swiss Francs (that’s it?) to the Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS). Didn’t anyone tell Oris they don’t use Swiss Francs in Australia! I joke! The money will […]
The green, white, and red colors of the power reserve indicator disc are a subtle reminder that this new limited edition watch from Oris has something to do with Italy. The dive watch is actually made as a limited edition piece with the Col Moschin in mind. Col Moschin is the Italian special forces. The […]
Have it known that the US side of Oris’s operation is comprised of some very lovely, helpful people. While I didn’t get to spend as much time as I would have liked with them at Baselworld 2010, I will be spending more time with their watch collection in June. I was able to get shots […]
More relatively affordable Swiss watch action from Oris. New for 2010 is this updated BC3 Sportsman model in a 42mm case. This is about as no nonsense as you’d want to get with a watch, and Oris keeps all the functionality you’ve come to expect in this collection. For years that have been centrally aligning […]
