Let Us Review The Oris Artelier Chronometer Date Men’s Watch
The freshly redesigned Swiss Oris Artelier Chronometer, Date is 40mm in diameter, and slimmer and more tapered than previous versions. In contrast to the new watch’s silhouette, the dial is finished using a traditional technique known as “guillochage”, an engraving process that creates a patterned, eye-catching decoration. The finish is inspired by the Art Deco movement, which currently enjoying a revival, as are the watch’s slim-line, rose gold-plated hands and indices.
Under the dial the Oris men’s watch is powered by the Oris Caliber 737, a chronometer-certified movement based on Sellita’s SW 200-1. To achieve chronometer status, each movement has been individually tested at the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) for 15 days, in five positions and at three different temperatures.
COSC certification guarantees accuracy to within -4 and +6 seconds a day and there is a certification number with each unit. The watch comes on either a dark brown leather strap or a metal bracelet that’s been modified by Oris to have flatter and slimmer links to complement the new case.
The Oris Artelier Chronometer, Date is both an homage to traditions laid down by generations of watchmakers and a design for today’s discerning watch buyer.
