Oris, which over the last few years has joined superior causes in the defence of the environment and life, has just joined the mission of the Coulson organization, which has been in existence for more than half a century and which today dedicates a large part of its activity to aerial combat of wildfires around the world.
For the exercise of its activities, the Coulson Group has a group of more than 450 professionals and assets that include fixed-wing aircraft, Type 1 helicopters and its RADS-XXL technology that allows them to operate 24 hours a day.
It is in this context that “The Coulson Limited Edition” appears, which is based on the Big Crown ProPilot line and features an innovative 3D-printed carbon fibre case, designed by the prestigious Swiss university ETH Zurich, in a process that consists of printing in simultaneous use of carbon fibre and PEKK – a high-quality polymer developed for aerospace and which results in an ultralight and extremely rigid material.
The case also comes with a grey PVD-coated titanium bezel, fluted crown and threaded case back, sapphire glass on the front and case back, and 100m of water resistance. Whose total weight including the internal movement does not go beyond 65 grams.
It is the dial that works as the business card, mirrored in its orange and red gradient tones, a progression of colours that intensify from the bottom to the top, and which aim to recreate the colours of wildfires. Contrasting the tones of the dial, white Arabic hour markers and hands are all filled with Super-LumiNova, and central seconds hand and a date window in black with white details.
Inside, the watch is equipped with the automatic movement Caliber 400, which operates at 28,800 Vph and offers 120 hours of power reserve, a considerable 5 days announced on the watch dial.
Finally, the Oris Coulson is accompanied by a black textile strap that matches the watch case and inside with an orange coating to match the dial.
The watch will be available at the brand’s official boutiques and authorized retailers for CHF 4,200 and is limited to 1,000 units.
