Oris Big Crown X1 Calculator Watch

Inspired from the first plane that broke the sound barrier – the Bell X-1 plane, the new Oris Big Crown X1 Calculator watch is a tribute to the historical aircraft.

The model successfully renders the time when aircrafts were made using slide rules. The bezel of this watch is rotating so that it can appropriately adjust the slide rule. In addition, this feature is used in calculating the fuel consumption for a certain flight time.


The 44mm case is crafted in PVD-treated gunmetal grey stainless steel. At 3 o`clock there is a powerful winding crown equipping the case. Located at 2 and 4 o`clock, the two chronograph push-pieces are marked with X and 1. The timepiece has 30-meter water-resistance.

The structure of new Big Crown X1 Calculator watch includes a front sapphire crystal that is glare-proofed on both sides. The case-back is manufactured in mineral glass and comprises a m/ft conversion table, handy in case of international use.

Made of metalized black/grey, the attractive function-packed dial is a delight for the eyes of connoisseurs. The dial is adorned with Arabic numbers, placed at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o`clock. The white numerals alternate with white stick-shaped hour-markers.


Broad visible hands, also in white, indicate the central hours and minutes, while a slim hand counts the seconds. Superluminova compound is used to highlight both hour-markers and hands, but the minute track too, offering good visibility in the dark.

Just above the small seconds counter, a rectangular aperture placed at 9 o`clock indicates the date. In addition, the new Oris Big Crown X1 Calculator watch face features a 12-hour, 30-minute and small seconds counters, located at 6, 12 and 9 o’clock correspondently. The date information is exhibited in the window at 4.30.

The self-winding ETA Valjoux 7750 movement makes possible all these functions. Standing as an innovative mélange between functionality, precision and aesthetic taste, the new Oris Big Crown X1 Calculator watch comes with a black calfskin leather strap with white stitching.
