Oris was founded by Paul Cattin and George Christian in the Swiss town of Hölstein. They bought a factory and signed a contract with the mayor in 1904. Initially making pocket watches in 1925 they started to add bracelets to their pocket watches which soon transitioned into the wristwatch. In 1938 they introduced the Big Crown that was used by pilots who wore thick leather gloves and needed a big crown for making adjustments.
Our Oris Pointer Dae has a 34mm highly polished stainless steel case. A gentle curve of the lugs making it a comfortable fit. On the right side an easy-to-grip crown. A full coin edge bezel supports a domed crystal. The black textured dial has an outer date track with a center indicator hand with a half-moon in red marking the date. Thick lumed Arabic numerals indicate the hours. Elegant steel syringe hands with lume infill are complemented with a sweeping second hand. On the reverse an exhibition case back showcasing an Automatic ETA 2688, 17 Jewels, 21,600 beats per hour. The rotor is modified by Oris with its gold colour and machine-turned finishing. The watch comes fitted on an 18mm black leather strap with an Oris signed buckle.
