    New version of Big Crown ProPilot Day (and Day Date)

    It looks like the ProPilot Day and Day Date have both gotten new versions, maybe this has slipped under the radar, I haven't seen this reported, or did this happen months ago and I missed it?

    They now have applied numerals and a better lume, looks like some new strap options and a bracelet as well.

    Also notice that as per their other new releases the font on the front now just says ORIS instead of ORIS (line) Automatic, a small change but looks much clearer.

    Looks like they are also upgrading some of the other watches in the ProPilot line with the same features.

    This has been discussed in here recently, so I’d do a search for that thread. But this is a very welcome change that I think adds a lot to the line. Especially the upgraded lume.

    Those hand winders (cals 114 & 111) with 10 day reserves are rather unique including the date at the 9 o’clock position. Very nice indeed.

    Kudos to Oris, and thank you for the links. Very nice updates to that dial. I never understand the necessity to add "Automatic" to so many dials, by so many brands. Having an automatic winding watch is really not a novelty, and absolutely no need to advertise the fact. The lumed applied arabics and markers look great as well.

    I only wish that Oris would refrain from the open sapphire case backs, in the case of the Sellita movments.

    I see they changed the crown for this one and made it a little smaller.

    Looks like an improvement to me as the crown on my BCPP was the reason I flipped it - Too much crown dig

    Concur, I know the feeling. I’ve had watches with obtrusive crowns and others with cases that dug into the wrist as well. Proportions have to be just right or I won’t wear it.
