When Oris launched the Calibre 110—the brand’s first in-house designed and assembled movement in almost 40 years—it was a sign of things to come from the storied Swiss independent. The movement, developed over the course of 10 years and released to celebrate Oris’ 110-year anniversary, was a technical powerhouse, boasting a whopping 10-day power reserve on a full (hand)wind and a non-linear power reserve and a sub-seconds dial. The 110 saw a limited production run.
The next development to this new movement family was a general release production—the Calibre 111, which saw the addition of a date complication. Then came the Calibre 112, which powered some of our favorite watches from last year’s Baselworld. The 112 saw a host of new complications on top of the already impressive movement, among them a second timezone and a day-night indicator. While the latter may not have been the most practical of complications, its implementation in the design of the dial was downright stunning.
