Oris has launched, relaunched, or even re-relaunched its Big
Crown Pointer Date pilot watch. The history of the watch dates
back to 1938, when it first came out. The model then fell by the
wayside to an extent and was relaunched in the eighties “to
demonstrate Oris’ mission to champion the eternal values of the
mechanical watch”, as it said at the time. The brand was then
somewhat forgotten once again, and is now being relaunched,
this time with the Pointer Date version in steel and bronze.
