To celebrate 110 years of history, the Hölstein-based Oris announced the Calibre 110, the first mechanical movement developed from the ground up by Oris for 35 years.
The Calibre 110 will appear in a new watch, the Oris 110 Years Limited Edition, featuring a multi-piece case with a diameter of 43 mm.
The opaline-silver colour dial with applied indices and numerals is characterized by the large display at 3 o’clock indicating the amount of power remaining in the barrel from 10 days down to zero.
At the top of the scale, the notches representing the days are close together; at the bottom they are further apart. As the power is released, the hand moves clockwise around the scale, slowly at first, and then more quickly as the notches become more spread out. This helps the wearer to better visualise how much power is left in the watch as the moment to wind it approaches.
The Oris 110 Years Limited Edition will be available in stainless steel or rose gold with retails prices of CHF 5,500 and CHF 14,800 respectively.
Available in April 2014, Oris will produce 110 pieces in 18 steel and 110 pieces in rose gold.
