Release date: June 2018
Price when reviewed: $5,800 – $6,100

Since debuting their first in-house Big Crown ProPilot Calibre movement in 2014, Oris has become a go-to luxury label for timepieces that are built for travel and aviation. Their new iteration, the Calibre 114, was one of the many stand-outs during Baselworld 2018. The clamor was enough to ensure that many clients, collectors, and travelers will buy the pair, which a lot did when Oris finally released the model for public purchase last June 2018. The price ranges from $5,800 to $6,100 depending on the material and strap one selects.

Specifications:

  • Diameter: 44mm
  • Movement: Hand-wound
  • Water Resistant: 100 meters
  • Power Reserve: 10 days
  • Frequency: 3Hz
  • Strap: Stainless steel bracelet, textile, and Louisiana crocodile leather
  • Buckle: Folding clasp

Pros

Lasting for 10 days, Oris’ new Big Crown ProPilot Calibre 114 holds the same extraordinary power reserve of its original iteration, the Calibre 110. The timepiece is built to ensure that it’s powerful and functional enough to withstand different time zones and long travel days. This new model also still hold the second time zone, or GMT, that was incorporated into the watch during the 1950’s, and its use is still as vital today as it was decades ago.

Cons

“Travel-size” usually means smaller than the average size of a certain item. From snacks to toiletries, various brands often decrease the size of their items so that their customers will have an easier time to pack and use them when they’re traveling. For a watch specifically made for traveling and aviation, Oris’ Big Crown ProPilot Calibre 114 and its 44-millimeter diameter hardly adheres to the same principle. Many critics who’ve seen and worn the timepiece firsthand have all noted that the size is quite big, even for a normal luxury watch and more for an item for traveling.
