Fratello Watches in collaboration with Oris has just launched a limited and exclusive edition of the “Fratello × Oris Big Crown Bronze Pointer Date with Oxblood Red Dial” watch, this watch was based on the “The Big Crown” model that is part of the collection Oris since 1983.
What sets this watch apart from all other Oris models and which constitutes its main features is its bronze case and its oxblood red colour dial, whose idea came from Michael Stockton collaborator of Fratello Watches.
On the dial we can find the gilt details, namely the date and the minute track, but also the inscriptions “Oris” at 12 o’clock and the inscriptions “Big Crown” followed by “Anti- Shock” that replaces the usual “Automatic” at 6 o’clock. Large Arabic hours markers in white and gold cathedral hands with luminescence, a central second hand and the pointer date.
The watch also comes with sapphire glass, water-resistance of 50 meters, a screw-down case back engraved with individual numbering, taking into account that it is a limited edition of only 300 pieces.
The watch is supplied with two straps, one in taupe leather strap and the other in grey NATO strap. The watch will go on sale for € 1,950 and 250 units will be on sale at Fratello Shop and the remaining 50 will be on sale at Oris.
Final thoughts, Oris has over the years used to produce beautiful and well-balanced watches and this is no exception, the bronze case and red dial fit perfectly, the gilt details do everything else. I, who am a strong supporter of dark dials, confess that I really like the final result of this watch.
