Oris Unveils ProPilot X Calibre 400 Laser at Dubai Watch Week
A Technological Marvel Unveiled at Dubai Watch Week 2023
Oris has once again taken center stage at Dubai Watch Week, presenting an extraordinary blend of innovation and artistry with the unveiling of the ProPilot X Calibre 400 Laser. This latest timepiece showcases a revolutionary dial produced using an unprecedented lasering technique, marking a significant breakthrough in Swiss mechanical watch craftsmanship.
The ProPilot X Calibre 400 Laser’s titanium dial is nothing short of a visual marvel, captivating enthusiasts with a mesmerizing play of colors. Employing an innovative lasering technique based on the principles of biomimicry, specifically optical interference found in nature, the dial seamlessly transitions from enchanting shades of blue to green and finally to violet as it gracefully moves. Remarkably, there is no use of color pigment in the dial; instead, the inventive treatment splits light into its components, creating a stunning rainbow effect that varies with the viewer’s angle.
This groundbreaking technology is a watchmaking first, developed in collaboration with a research lab affiliated with ETH Zürich and applied to the titanium dial under the guidance of Oris’s engineering department. Beyond the dial, the ProPilot X Calibre 400 maintains its distinctive and forward-looking design, featuring a titanium 39mm case, bezel, and crown, along with a three-link titanium bracelet.
Richard Siegrist, the driving force behind Oris’s development, expresses his excitement, stating, “It’s technological beauty at its most captivating, harnessing a phenomenon found in nature. We’re creating beautiful watches loaded with innovation, useful functions, and huge added value. This watch brings technology that’s never been used in this industry before.” Siegrist highlights the importance of the collaboration with ETH, emphasizing Oris’s commitment to working with young talents and providing opportunities for showcasing their ideas.
The ProPilot X Calibre 400 Laser is not just a timepiece; it is an embodiment of cutting-edge technology and craftsmanship, promising its owner years of joy and countless smiles. Oris invites watch enthusiasts to witness the boundaries of technological beauty being pushed as they unveil the ProPilot X Calibre 400 Laser at Dubai Watch Week 2023.
