Take Some Me-Time With Oris & The New ProPilot X Kermit Edition

Oris is expanding on their popular ProPilot X range of watches this year (a watch we reviewed here), but probably not in the way you were expecting. Meet the ProPilot X Kermit Edition, a green dial ProPilot X with a positive message and an easter egg up its sleeve. This watch represents Oris’ first time collaborating with Disney’s The Muppets franchise to create a truly unique experience around their popular pilot watch, and it gives us a deeper insight into Oris the brand than ever before. The theme of this watch is taking a minute for yourself, not taking life too seriously, and a reminder to have some fun. 

The most striking detail of this ProPilot X is, obviously, the bright green dial. It’s not just any green, this is a key lime pie, cartoon level of green, and with a name like this you had better bring it. And bring it Oris most certainly has with this dial. I’d go so far as to say they could have ditched the white hour markers altogether and fully leaned into the concept, but they are there, so there is a level of practicality to the watch. There’s even a date window, but that part isn’t as straightforward.


The big reveal of this watch happens on the first of every month, where the date window will reveal not a number, but an icon of the watch’s namesake, Kermit the Frog, of The Muppets fame. This is the once a month reminder to take a step back, lighten up a bit, and reflect on the positives in your life. That’s the idea, at least, and it might just have you keeping the date set to the 1st of the month every day. 

Oris is no stranger to attaching a cause greater than themselves to their work, as we’ve seen time and again, from their work with the Billion Oyster Project here in New York, to their partnership with Wings of Hope based in St. Louis. That’s just the tip of the iceberg with Oris, but this particular watch is the first to put the attention not on a specific cause, but on the wearer themself. It’s an uplifting message in what always seem to be dire times, and taking time for ourselves feels more important now than ever before. 

Outside of the dial and date aperture, this is all ProPilot X, which is a very good thing. It’s a fully titanium case and bracelet that clocks in at 39mm and houses Oris’ in-house caliber 400, a 5 day automatic movement with a 10 year warranty and a slew of anti-magnetic components. Our Ed Jelley found a lot to love in the watch in his full review right here. This Kermit Edition shows the versatility of the platform, a point perhaps already made by the vivacious salmon dial on the original trio. 

The Oris ProPilot X Kermit Edition is priced at $4,600, and is available directly from Oris now. This is likely just the beginning of character themed watches from Oris, so let us know which of The Muppets you’d like to see adorning your next Oris. Oris.
