ORIS Artelier Calibre 112

Over the last three years, Oris has been reclaiming its watchmaking heritage with the launch of Calibres 110 and 111, two innovative references that offer watch buyers a unique combination of complications – at a reasonable price.

This year, Oris adds a third unique calibre to this landmark portfolio, Calibre 112. As before, the new calibre has been developed in-house by Oris’s engineers. It features a 10-day power reserve (delivered by a single barrel), a patented non-linear power reserve indicator (which shows the remaining power reserve in ever greater detail as the time to wind the watch approaches), a date function, and a GMT function with day-night indicator, a combination never seen before in Swiss watchmaking.

The watch’s second time zone appears in a subdial at 12 o’clock and shows the time in full, with dedicated hour and minute hands, while the day/night indication is shown by two apertures in the dial. One is round and shaped like the Sun, the other crescent-shaped like the Moon. Under the dial there is a two-tone rotating disc. During the day this turns the Sun white and the Moon dark, and the reverse at night. At sunrise and sunset, both indicators become a mix of the two colours to show the progression. Each of the watch’s functions is operated through a single crown.

There’ll be a stainless steel option with either a blue-grey or opaline silver dial, and a bi-colour model with an 18-carat rose gold bezel and an opaline silver dial. All models come with Louisiana crocodile leather straps with a stainless steel folding clasp. There will also be a bracelet version of the stainless steel models.
