In September of this year, Oris returned to Nevada and served as the official timekeeper of the world famous 56th Renault Flying Race. In commemoration of the partnership with this event, the Swiss independent watch company produced a limited edition BigCrownProPilotGMT watch.
This automatic watch is equipped with a 45 mm stainless steel case. The bezel design is inspired by the turbine blades of the jet engine. The top of the central second time zone hand is shaped like an airplane and decorated with the same red and white colors as the indicator tower. Official logo of the National Flying Championship.
The watch has a brown leather or (red leather lining) olive green fabric strap and a stainless steel folding clasp. It is limited to 500 pieces.
