Oris BC3 Sportsman Watch

       Oris is a prestigious watch-making brand, which carries on over one century of tradition of commitment to the fine art of creating timepieces of immaculate mechanical purity, unmatched precision and well balanced remarkable aesthetics highly appreciated by the watch connoisseurs worldwide.

       Through the years, the brand experienced a fruitful intertwinement with the fascinating world of aviation, releasing outstanding wristwatches characterized by exceptional reliability and functionality preferred by professional pilots.


       The name of the timepiece is a reference to the first classification level for aerobatic pilots, and is directly connected with the brand’s partnership with one of the most famous pilots in the world, Don Vito Wyprachtiger, the test pilot for Hannes Arch, the world champion of air racing.

       Recently the brand created another upgraded variation of its iconic BC3 Sportsman, first introduced in 2000, a new classy minimalist timepiece, defined by sporty unadorned masculine design, the 2010 Oris BC3 Sportsman Watch features a redesigned slicker sporty case, measuring 42 mm in diameter. The robust case of the watch reveals a close attention to the purity of the finest detail touch, it features an eye-pleasing combination of brushed surfaces coupled with a thin polished ring encircling the bezel, which matches the watch’s polished winding crown. Moreover, the winding crown features a red inlay, which hints about the brand’s signature red rotor that can be admired through the sapphire crystal case-back of the timepiece. Moreover, the multi-piece stainless steel case of the watch ensures a very good 100-meters water resistance.


       The brushed case of the watch makes a beautiful contrast against the watch’s stylish black dial, nicely accented with white hour indices and Arabic numeral hour markers, which received luminescent treatment for optimal time-legibility in poor light conditions same as the hour and minutes hands. The clean black dial displays a day and date complication, through two intertwined windows forming a”T”, at 6 o’clock position.

       At the heart of the new Oris BC3 Sportsman Watch beats a high-quality automatic mechanical movement that provides central hours, minutes and seconds in addition to the day and date functions.

       Appropriate for an active contemporary man, the new Oris BC3 Sportsman watch is a sporty reliable timekeeping companion, which comes coupled with a stylish leather strap, a sportier rubber strap or a masculine polished steel bracelet depending on the customer’s option, all for an approximate price ranging around $1,000.00.
