BaselWorld 2017 – Oris Chronoris Date
Every company and their dog are currently releasing retro re-issues so why shouldn’t Oris get in on the act? I do like this one, too. From Hodinkee: The Chronoris Date is a modern version of the vintage watch, of the same name, released by Oris 47 years ago. The Chronoris was first introduced in 1970 and was a stop-seconds chronograph, not to mention the first chronograph for the Swiss maker. The name, as you might have guessed, is a combination of the words chronograph and Oris, and the last Chronoris was released in 2005, so it has been a little while.
The most exciting thing about this watch is the inner rotating bezel timer (in silver) that is turned via the crown four o’clock. The movement is the Oris automatic caliber 733, which is based on the Selita SW 200-1. Notice this isn’t a stop-seconds chronograph, but rather a time-and-date model that can use the inner bezel for timing events. $1,750 on the straps and $1,950 on the steel bracelet. Read on.
