    Baselworld 2015: Oris Live Report and Video Interview with Ralf Hilbich

    Watchuseek interviewed Ralf Hilbich, Product Development Manager at Oris. Ralf discussed with us the technical details of the new calibre 111




    In 2014, three and half decades on from the launch of its last in-house calibre and the year of its 110th anniversary, Oris unveiled Calibre 110, a hand-wound movement with a unique combination of complications. Its 10-day power reserve and non-linear power reserve indicator, delivered through a single barrel solidified Oris’s reputation as an innovator. Calibre 110 was limited in production to 220 pieces – Calibre 111 components are manufactured with individual tools in larger series in cooperation with the most advanced micro-technical enterprises in Switzerland.

    There will be four versions of the Calibre 111. The 10-day power reserve and non-linear power reserve indicators have been carried over from Calibre 110, as have the 43mm case and the stainless steel and 18-carat rose gold case material options. The major difference between Calibre 110 and Calibre 111 is the addition of a date function.

    Each of the models has two different dials. The stainless steel model is available either with a silver-grey or a sunray black-gold dial. The rose-gold model features either an opaline silver-gold or a maroon dial.

    All four watches have sapphire crystal glasses and case backs, and are water-resistant to 3 bar/30 metres. The 18-carat rose gold model will be available on a brown or grey crocodile leather strap; the stainless steel version will come on either a black crocodile leather strap or a stainless steel bracelet. All four will be delivered in October 2015.

    The new Oris Divers Sixty-Five shares the retro looks of the 1960s original, but it’s been modernised using 21st century watchmaking techniques. The case is now a more contemporary 40mm in diameter, and it’s made of anti-corrosive stainless steel. The vintage-inspired bubble-curved glass is made of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and comes with anti-reflective coating on the inside to reduce glare and increase legibility underwater.

    One significant update is the new watch’s unidirectional rotating bezel, which has a black aluminium inlay with a 60-minute scale. The original’s tritium-filled hands and indices have also been updated, and are now filled with “Light Old Radium” Super-LumiNova that contrasts with the black dial and maximizes legibility.

    The watch is water-resistant to 10bar/100m and has a screw-in stainless steel crown. Inside is the automatic Oris Calibre 733, which powers hour, minute and central second hands and a date function at 6 o’clock. The steel case back is engraved with the same historical Oris emblem as the 1965 original, and the watch’s details are complemented by a black textile or rubber strap with a stainless steel buckle.
