After we saw last October the IWC consolidate its partnership with the North American ‘Top Gun’, Naval Fighter Weapons School for elite pilots in Miramar, now it is Oris’ turn to establish a similar partnership with the European Tactil Leadership Program (TPL), an elite pilot training school in Spain, which provides tactical air operations training to NATO allied coalition forces.
To celebrate this association, Oris launches the TPL Limited Edition based on its ProPilot line of watches for pilots.
The new TPL comes in a 44 mm stainless steel case coated in anti-reflective gun-metal grey PVD, green dial based on the colours of the TPL pilots’ suits, applied Arabic hour indexes and hands all in white filled with blue luminescence, black second hand with an orange tip, black day-date window at 3 o’clock and some beige details on the dial taken from the eagle in the TPL logo. The watch is offered with a green “Ventile” strap, a high-strength fabric made for pilots of the British Royal Air Force during World War II.
This limited edition is a 750-piece civilian model made together with an exclusive version for the pilot’s graduating TPL, which can be personalized with their name, program year and limited edition number on the case back.
The watch is present in an olive and orange travel case and with a cardholder used to store the warranty card, in the same “Ventile” material used on the watch strap. It is already available for the price of € 2,050.
