The most iconic and recognizable watch produced by Oris dates back to 1938 when they released the Big Crown Pointer Date. A novel timepiece with a central pointer hand indicator that revolved around the dial to show the date versus the conventional date window which is present in 99% of watches out there.
The Oris Big Crown Pointer Date 80th Anniversary Edition. 40mm in a solid bronze case with a deep green dial.
