Oris launched the new Pilot’s Watch 111 with its large crown. The blue dial design is inspired by the vast and free sky. The big-crowned pilot watch has always been tough and functional, and under the blue decoration, it is even more unique, from the cockpit to the cocktail party, it is your stage.
Oris Grand Crown Pilot 111 new watch with blue dial
Although the blue dial is the darling of the banquet, the Grand Crown Pilot 111 watch is still a mechanical watch with excellent performance and technical content. It is driven by Oris’ proud 111-calibre movement and represents the highest watchmaking standards of the brand.
The 111 self-winding movement has a huge barrel, which can store up to 1.8 meters of barrels for 10 days of power. The 111 automatic movement is also equipped with Oris patented ‘non-linear power reserve display’ function, which can synchronously indicate the remaining power of the movement. The remaining power reserve scale from 10 days to 0 days gradually widens and is more eye-catching than the conventional ‘uniform linear’ scale. At the same time, the movement also has a calendar display. Innovation brings more practical functions, while ingenuity gives the machine its unique aesthetic beauty. The 111 self-maintaining core is an ingenious fusion of tradition and modernity, mechanical and manual.

As early as the beginning of the last century, Oris appeared in the flight cockpit during the budding period of aviation. At the Oris Museum, an aviation pocket watch made in 1909 was engraved with a graphic of the French pilot Louis Blériot landline, commemorating his first flight across the English Channel. Developed towards the end of the 1910s, Oris has begun manufacturing a large number of aviation watches for pilots. In 1938, Oris introduced the iconic large crown watch. Its crown volume is much larger than that of other contemporary watches, making it easy for pilots to operate the watch while wearing leather gloves. Today, the aviation series has become one of Oris’ four major product lines. They continue the precision and innovation of aviation, and are full of the brand’s blue sky feeling.
Today’s Grand Crown Pilot 111 self-moving watch is a typical aviation watch with excellent performance and appearance. The 44 mm case is made of stainless steel and is tough. The design of the coin bezel is inspired by the engine turbine of a jet aircraft. The large hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova®, which allows for clear readings day and night. The dial is painted in sky-blue, with a dark brown Louisiana alligator leather strap, a black fabric strap, or a stainless steel strap. The banquet, military style, and formal wear are available in different styles. Heaven and earth are all elites, and this is the feeling of aviation watches.
