    Big Crown Propilot facelift?

    Anyone else notice that Oris has released "new" Big Crown Propilot date models? New as in these seem to have raised applied numerals and polished center links on bracelets.
    For example, ref. for "older" propilot big date with grey sunburst dial: 01 751 7697 4063-07 8 20 19 -
    And ref. for facelifted model with raised applied numerals: 01 751 7761 4063-07 8 20 08P -

    These subtle changes are, in my opinion, just what these models were lacking. Especially the numerals.

    Agreed. The depth the applied numerals give makes this watch all that more special. They’ve posted pics on Instagram and mention that the seatbelt style clasp has been redesigned and the case is thinner too, in addition to the points you’ve already mentioned. Love the new updates!

    Looks like they improved the lume too, which desperately needed an upgrade. Thanks a lot Oris, now I need a new pilot watch for Christmas.

    I like what theyve done. I think the Hamilton Khaki field would also look great with similar upgrades.

    No one’s ever called me observant. Thanks for pointing the changes out.
