Way back in 1965, Oris released a diver called the Sixty-Five with a particular character about it that one couldn’t help but like. The dial was the main selling point—the funky design screamed unique but was still appropriate for the time period and offered a fresh face for a dive watch.
When I say this is a true tactical watch, I mean it: Oris is very proud to announce a new partnership with the United States Marine Corps Force Reconnaissance, also known as Force Recon, one of the elite U.S. Special Forces companies. Force Recon is a special operations command unit like the U.S. Navy Seals or Army Special Forces that operates independently behind enemy lines to provide military intelligence to Marine Air-Ground Task Forces, performing deep reconnaissance and direct action missions at sea and on land. Accordingly, this watch is spec’d up for heavy duty use, with a light & scratch resistant DLC-finished titanium case, 1,000 meter water resistance, and even a tactical watch cover for full camouflage needs.
For 2014, Oris continues to innovate with the introduction of the Big Crown Propilot Altimeter, the first automatic watch with an altimeter. What makes the watch interesting is not only the first it presents, but how well it fits within Oris’ existing model lineup—the company is all about aviation, racing, and anything adventurous, so if one isn’t aware of the complication’s novelty, it risks going unnoticed. But perhaps that’s just as Oris intended, isn’t it?
