Oris is targeting the business executive market with the first watch it has revealed in 2017.
The Artelier Calibre 113, uses a similar in-house movement to the 110, 11 and 112, but has an additional business calendar complication showing the day, date, week and month of the year.
The Calibre 110 was Oris’s first movement made completely in-house for almost 40 years. Launched in 2014, it has become the backbone of the manufacturer’s classic watch lines.
The next generation 113, like its predecessors, has a 10-day power reserve, a non-linear power reserve indicator and a small seconds subdial. The addition of the business calendar complication delivers even more complexity to a timepiece that Oris describes and prices as a “real watch for real people”.
Calibre 113 comes in a 43mm multi-piece stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal glass and case back so the watch’s movement design can be seen.
It has apertures at 12 and 9 o’clock for the day and date indications, while a hand with a red tip points to the week and month on a gauge around the outside of the dial.
Two dial colours, anthracite grey and opaline silver, are offered.
“Calibre 113 is another big step for us, becoming Oris’s fourth fully in-house developed movement in as many years. This is an exciting time for Oris and Oris customers. Our Centre of Excellence is now firmly established as a home for our most talented watchmakers and a pillar on which we will continue to build our future as a mechanical watch company,” says Oris chairman Ulrich Herzog.
The watches will be presented for the first time at Baselworld in March.
