Oris ProPilot X Caliber 400 Laser

Exploring boundless creativity unencumbered by constraints is a hallmark of an independent brand like Oris. The unveiling of the Oris ProPilot Calibre 400 Laser, stemming from last year's well-engineered ProPilot Calibre 400, showcases a vibrant dial devoid of paint or pigment. Crafted in collaboration with a research lab linked to ETH Zürich over two years, this unique dial harnesses the mesmerizing phenomenon of light interference.The roots of this captivating phenomenon trace back to the discoveries of Thomas Young, an esteemed physicist from the early 19th century. Young's revelations about light behaving as waves elucidate how their interactions result in the strengthening or canceling out of their combined amplitudes. The 39mm multi-piece case is made of titanium with a satin-sandblasted finish. Mounted to the case is a fixed fluted bezel, knurled with diagonal etchings.On the flip-side is a sapphire exhibition caseback that allows a view into the inner workings of mechanical movement. It showcases several jewels, gold gears, and an oscillating weight engraved with the Oris logo shield.It comes equipped with an oversized titanium screw-in crown, placed between a pair of crown guards. All topped by a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating. Water-resistance can reach up to 100 meters (330 feet).Time is exhibited on a multi-colored dial with printed hour index indices, followed by a minute track circling around the flange. This interesting laser dial treatment process is an all-time first, which was done in partnership with a research lab affiliated with ETH Zurich.In terms of colors this watch uniquely lets off various green and blue hues, while excluding any of the red tones from the RGB equation. The entire dial also has a vertical texture finish that adds more depth to overall design.The layout remains very simple and allows for a quick effective reading at a glance. The central sword-shaped steel hands have been fitted with a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility. Despite the use of their 400 caliber, Oris has excluded the date window at 6 o’clock, to not disrupt the main attraction of this rainbow-like dial.As stated by Oris “The technique behind the watch’s colourful dial is state-of-the-art. But it’s inspired by the principles of biomimicry, whereby technology reflects the wonders of nature. Think of the iridescent wings of a beetle and the way they reflect light to appear a bluey-green. It’s the same thing here. We developed the technique in partnership with Switzerland’s prestigious ETH Zürich university and this is the first time it’s been used in a watch. The result? Joy on the wrist.”
