Details & Specifications

A new edition

On 1 June, Oris introduces the Hölstein Edition 2021, a 250-piece limited-edition version of the Big Crown pilot’s watch. The watch, which has a 38mm stainless steel case is the first watch to house the in-house developed Oris Calibre 403, a new automatic from our ground-breaking Calibre 400 Series.

The Big Crown is Oris’s signature design. It’s been in the collection, in constant production, since 1938 when it was introduced as a tool for gloved airmen. It was named after its oversized crown, and designed to be easy to operate during flight. It’s stand-out function was a pointer date, a central hand that pointed to a date scale running round the edge of the dial.

The Hölstein Edition 2021 brings this story up to date with a special case inspired by the pre-war original. For this model, we’ve stripped back the fluted bezel and domed crystal; in their place are a flat bezel and sharper, crisper lines. The grey palette reflects the industrial methods Oris pioneered in the first half of the 20th century, while the newly developed numerals are based on references from the Oris archive.

Calibre 403

Inside it is Oris Calibre 403, which shares the same base architecture and same high performance as our in-house Calibre 400 automatic – a five-day power reserve, elevated levels of anti-magnetism and a 10-year warranty. Added to these features are a small seconds at 6 o’clock and the famous pointer date function. It’s a class-leading movement created for the modern world, telling a much-loved story.

It’s also the first 38mm Big Crown this century, and each piece has the Oris Bear on the case back with its limited-edition number.
