Oris has really been hitting on all cylinders recently and I was just apprised of a new model, the Chronoris Limited Edition. It is a dual-register chronograph with no running seconds that runs a Oris Cal. 673, base ETA 7750 and has a date at three o’clock. It clocks in at $3,500 on a strap and $3,800 on a metal bracelet.
From the release:
The iconic Chronoris, the watch that took Oris into motorsport in 1970, returns in a new limited edition run of just 200 pieces. The new model features a high-performance 1/4 of a second
chronograph with vertically arranged 30-minute and 12-hour counters, and is distinguished by its orange elements, a design detail lifted from the original. The fluid, retro case comes on either a dark brown leather or rubber strap, or a 1970s-inspired stainless steel metal bracelet. Each piece is delivered in a vintage leather pouch, complete with a NATO strap and a strap-changing tool.
The watch, like the the newer Omega historical homages, features a unique retro styling that is in every way modern. The piece, which hearkens back to the heyday of motorsport watches, is a real looker and it’s well worth a second look if you’re in the market for a Speedmaster Mark II-style watch that comes in at well under the price of a new Speedy.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
