In order to commemorate 110 years of history, Oris announced the Calibre 110, the first mechanical movement developed from the ground up by Oris for 35 years. This watch just only made 110 pieces in 18 steel and 110 pieces in rose gold.
The Calibre 110 appearred in a new watch, the Oris 110 Years Limited Edition, featuring a multi-piece case with a diameter of 43 mm.
This new hand-wound calibre beating at 21,600 vph, features a 10-day power reserve and a patented non-linear power reserve indication. Oris has taken a deliberately industrial approach to producing this unique movement. While Calibre 110’s edges are all hand-bevelled and hand-polished, the bridges’ large surfaces do not hide their industrial origin.
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.
