Top Quality Oris Tycho Brahe Limited Edition Replica Watch

The 42mm Top Quality Oris Tycho Brahe Limited Edition Replica Watch appears to be a variation ofthe Artix Pointer Moon released last year. Powering the watch is Oris’s Calibre 761, based on Sellita SW220. The moonphase complication is added, so it is unique to Oris. The Oris Tycho Brahe Limited Edition is a LE of 500 pieces and watches should start hitting stores May 2015. The watch will be priced CHF 2,200.00 (~$2,220 USD).

Picture Another Baselworld 2015 release, this watch is part of Oris’ Artix collection.

The Oris Tycho Brahe Replica Watch is clearly an astronomy-inspired watch. The dark blue elements and high-contrast, light markers portray the night sky. The watch also has a built-in moonphase indicator (which is present on other watches using the same movement). In addition, the caseback is engraved with the Tychonic system (picture below).

Best Oris Audi Sport Limited Edition II Replica Watch

The Best Oris Audi Sport Limited Edition II Replica Watch is their latest. Powered by Oris Calibre 778, the new watch has a 44mm titanium case, which keeps the watch at a low weight. This allows the watch to be more comfortable during a longer period of time. I imagine that comfort was a major focus, as this watch will be worn by the Audi Sport drives during the 2015 racing season.

Picture Here’s another “Limited Edition II” from Oris released at this year’s Baselworld. Audi Sport Replica Watch  has a long track record of producing high-performance motorsport timepieces. Functionality was another major focus, as is evident by the 10-minute countdown feature, which drivers to more accurately keep track of race start times.

Picture Picture Picture Picture

The watch also features a small seconds dial at 9 o’clock, which takes its design cues from the dashboard instruments of modern race cars. Oris has given its new Audi Sport timepiece a stealthy all-black look: its case is cast in lightweight titanium and PVD coated in black DLC; it has a black dial; and the bi-directional rotating bezel has a scratch-resistant black ceramic insert engraved with a minute scale. The Oris Audi Sport Limited Edition II will be limited to 2,000 pieces. Audi Replica Watch will be available in June 2015 with a retail price of 3,900CHF (~3,940USD).

Best Oris Williams Day-Date and Oris Williams Chronograph Replica Watch

The oris williams replica watch, however, is THICK (on the chronograph). I have no idea what they stuffed in that case. Maybe it’s just the angle. I personally dislike a number of the features. From the press release: “The crown has been engineered to resemble a wheel from the car’s gearbox, while the chronograph sub-dials all reset to a zero mark positioned at 8 o’clock, like the needles on dashboard instrument panels found on historic Williams F1 racing cars.” I personally dislike it when companies decrease functionality to increase the design of a watch. I don’t want my chronograph hands to reset to 8, I want them to reset to 12. I don’t want to be spinning the watch around all day trying to get an accurate reading.

Picture I wish Oris would stop grouping their oris williams replica. Not everything has to come in two.  There will be two base models in the collection – the 42mm stainless steel Oris Williams Day Date and the 44mm stainless steel Oris Williams Chronograph.

Both models feature a case designed to mirror the silhouette of a Williams F1 car. The case tapers like the profile of the car, while the integrated lugs are meant to look like the nose cone. “The result is a dynamic oris replica watch design”, says Oris. I had something funny to say about this, but I don’t want to burn any bridges. I want to glance and go. The chronograph is 44mm in diameter, while the Day-date is 42. They will retail for (rubber/bracelet) 2,800/3,000 (chronograph) or 1,250/1,450 (Day-Date).

Best Quality Oris Force Recon GMT Replica Watch

To save space, the Best Quality Oris Force Recon GMT Replica Watch are printed on a rotating disk, which is mostly hidden beneath the dial. Powering the watch is the Oris cal. 747 (based on Sellita SW 220-1) with a date at 3 o’clock, a seconds window at 9 o’clock, and a 24-hour hand for a second time zone originating from the center. The case is 49mm in diameter and crafted from titanium, which will keep the weight relatively low.

Picture

This is Oris’ first Oris Force Recon GMT Replica Watch  as a part of their partnership with the United States Marine Corps Force Reconnaissance (also known as Force Recon). The watch is clearly military-styled. That being said, I think the watch would be better suited with a quartz movement. The retail price will be 3,800 CHF (~3,840USD).

Picture

The Oris Replica Watch dial and hands have a high level of contrast, while there are also significant deposits of luminescent material. (Still not sure why I chose to phrase it this way). At 6 the emblem of the Force Recon team/branch can be found. At 9, there is a small-seconds subdial.While I have questions about the functionality of an automatic watch where it is prone to shocks, magnetism, and other abuse, I’m not claiming to have any knowledge in this area.

Best Quality Oris Divers Sixty-Five Replica Watch

This Best Quality Oris Divers Sixty-Five Replica Watch is based off of the original design-wise, but contains features that are expected in a watch that costs ~1,800USD. For example, the movement is the Oris Cal. 733, which is based off of the Sellita SW200. The case is stainless steel, but it is only water resistant to 100m. However, the original was WR to 100m, so I can see why Oris’ designers chose to do this.

Picture I’m not going to lie, I like many of the Oris Divers Sixty-Five Replica Watch we see today. This is largely due to the vintage styling, which I think has a style lost in today’s watches.  This watch, however, has yet to really grow on me. I like the design, I think the 40mm size suits the watch well and I would enjoy owning and wearing it, but I don’t like it as much as some other reissues we have seen (and there are plenty). Picture Picture Picture

The caseback is engraved with the same historical Oris Replica Watch emblem as the 1965 original, which is another cool feature. The curved dial is covered by a domed sapphire crystal, which will be distortionless thanks to the fact that the crystal is domed on both sides. The bezel inlay is aluminum. The watch is complemented by a black textile or rubber strap with a stainless steel buckle.

Best Oris 110 Limited Edition Replica Watch

If you have been reading my blog I have talked about Best Oris 110 Limited Edition Replica Watch and their next revolutionary watch for some time. Well, the wait is over. The Calibre 110 has two complications that have never before been combined in the same watch, a 10-day power reserve and a patented non-linear power reserve indicator. Oris’ watchmakers will hand assembling and testing each calibre in Oris’ Hölstein factory.

Picture Oris has been making affordable mechanical watches for a long time. However, many of them use movements such as the SW220 or the SW300. Despite the fact that they produced 229 in-house calibres between the years 1904 and 1981, it is the first mechanical movement developed from the
ground up by Oris for 35 years (movements are designed years before they come out). However, in the 110th year of the company and 33 years after their latest in-house oris replica watch calibre was introduced, they unveil the Calibre 110.  Picture

This new calibre has everything a person could want. It is a hand-wound movement but with an immense 10-day power reserve, that is not a negative at all. One interesting thing about this movement is that it has only one barrel. Given, it is a very large barrel but it does have to fit a mainspring that is 1.8m long.

Picture

Disregarding materials the watches are identical. Each is 43mm in diameter and has a water resistance of 30m. They each have a genuine crocodile leather strap (usually they use calf leather with a croco pattern) with what I assume is a deployant clasp.  Picture

The watch comes in two versions, a rose gold version and a steel version. Each is a limited edition of just 110 (see a similarity here?).

Oris says non-linear power reserve which I think is slightly misleading. What they mean is that the power reserve indicator hand does not move at a constant speed. The hand moves more slowly the more the movement is wound but somewhere around the three day mark the hand starts moving more quickly. Oris says it gives the wearer a more accurate view of how much time they have left before they have to wind their watch.

However, Oris is not charging what it should for these watches.  The steel oris replica version (Ref No. 01 110 7700 4081) retails for just 5,500 CHF (~$6,300 USD) and the red gold version (Ref No. 01 110 7700 6081) retails for 14,800 CHF (~$17,000 USD). These watches are now available for preorder and will be delivered in April 2014. A further explanation of the patented power reserve system can be found below. This is a huge step for Oris and a big step for mechanical watchmaking as well. I mean, 10 days in one barrel!

Black Dial Oris Artix Pointer Moon Replica Watch

This Black Dial Oris Artix Pointer Moon Replica Watch is not exactly new but it is redesigned into, as Oris puts it, a slimmer and more elegant model. As with many other Oris watches it uses nickel hands and applied markers filled with superluminova. The black dial matches the black calf skin (crocodile pattern) strap which uses a folding buckle. This watch will be priced at 1,900 CHF which is approximately $2,200. Oris redesigned their dressier model lines this year and really made some huge improvements which will show when these watches hit the market sometime in summer-autumn of this year.

Picture

I am still waiting for Oris’ next big Oris Artix Pointer Moon Replica Watch  that they talked about but this is enough to tide me over for the time being. The date is displayed in the more classic way with a date window and the inner ring displays the number of days left until the next lunar cycle while the chapter ring has the corresponding moon phases on it.  Really great job Oris!

Best Quality Oris Artelier Jumping Hour Replica Watch

This Best Quality Oris Artelier Jumping Hour Replica Watch  is an absolute must-have for anyone who likes jumping hour watches. With two off-center intersecting dials this watch is not your regular jumping hour and it shows a bit more craftsmanship. However, for 4,100 CHF (~$4,700) it should show more quality than regular watches. The features don’t stop at the 40.5mm case of the watch though.

Picture

Oris has an extremely broad range of watches in their collection. Their Oris Artelier Jumping Hour Replica  can be found 9,200m off the ground and their divers 1000m below the surface of the earth. Their newest watch is water resistant to only 50m and is more likely to be found in an office building where the only diving that will be taking place is desk diving.

Picture Picture

At the heart of the watch beats the automatic caliber 917, which is based off of the SW300. The strap has a folding clasp rather than a tang buckle, a feature many people including myself appreciate because it not only keeps the strap looking new by not wearing out the holes but also allows the wearer to more easily put on and take off the watch. It is amazing to believe that with all the complicated Oris Replica  has in their collection that it took 110 years the the brand to create a jumping hour watch, but they certainly did an amazing job on it!
