Oris are set to welcome their latest in-house caliber 400 to their ProPilot family for the first time with the ProPilot X Caliber 400. The newest ProPilot is more than simply adding the new movement to an existing watch, the latest ProPilot X features a totally new design for the collection, including some funky dial colors, a svelte case, and an origami style bracelet design straight from the ProPilot X Caliber 115. The latest collection stretches the boundaries of what we expect from a pilot’s watch, and does so in typical Oris fashion.
The ProPilot X Caliber 400 is a bit of a dual personality watch, with a new dial design language that says “I’m subtle, yet sophisticated” competing with a case and bracelet design language that says “get in losers, we’re going to buzz the tower”. It’s a pilot’s watch that’s clearly subverting the typical pilot watch expectations. But first, some facts.
