fake ORIS TT1 ENGINE DATE

There is a certain balancing act that must be respected when designing a successful “automotive-themed” watch, with many examples simply falling prey to the uncanny valley of making the watch look much like a car, wheel, or gauge. With the new Oris Williams Engine Date, the brand has found an equilibrium with a legible steel sport watch that won’t look out of place in a pit lane. Oris has enjoyed a long-standing partnership with Willams F1 and the new Williams Engine Date is far from their first automotive themed watch (they also work with Audi). Using the same distinctive case design established by the previous Oris Williams models, the Oris Engine Date adds some dial skeletonization and detailing to further establish a connection with automotive designs.
Much like the Oris Williams Day Date, the Williams Engine Date uses a 42 mm steel case with a mix of brushed and polished finishing. With an anti-reflective sapphire crystal up front and a mineral crystal display case back, the Engine Date is water resistant to 100m. Despite being automotive-themed, the dial design is legible, with large numerals at three and nine and wide luminous hands.fake ORIS TT1 ENGINE DATE
The skeletonization is limited t o the center of the dial and the minute numerals are printed horizontally, rather than following the curve of the dial. The movement is finished with an anthracite coloring and I rather like how it integrates with the main dial. With a long minute hand and minute track on the rehaut, the proportions are strong and the design is eye catching, especially for a watch at this price point. The seconds hand and the marker beneath the date window at six are blue, a match for Williams F1’s team colors.
For the Williams Engine Date, the titular “engine” is Oris’ calibre 733, a modified Sellita SW200-1. With 38 hours power reserve and a beats at a 4 hz rate, this automatic movement is finished with Oris’ instantly recognizable red oscillating weight. While the SW200, which is essentially direct competition for the ETA 2824, is not a fancy movement, it is perfectly acceptable at this price point and offers excellent reliability, performance and serviceability for its cost.

With the new Artix GT Chronograph, Oris introduces a new type of countdown indicator displayed in a vertical aperture appearing on the subdial at 9 o’clock. This indicator is made up of fives squares which are filled in five seconds – one square per second – five seconds before the quarter, half, three-quarter and full minute.
The Artix GT Chronograph is aimed at fans of motorsport, especially those with sympathies for the Audi Sport Teams which Oris sponsors. Indeed, the colourway of this watch employs the colours used on the lightweight carcass of an Audi branded WEC race car.
Oris Artix GT Chronograph. With the new Artix GT Chronograph, Oris introduces a new type of countdown indicator displayed in a vertical aperture appearing on the subdial at 9 o’clock. The transparent case back showcases the automatic Oris Calibre 774 (base Sellita SW500) beating at 28,8000 vph with 48 hours of power reserve and its characterising red rotor.
Oris has presented a new timekeeper that comfortably combines a nicely executed, old-fashioned chronograph with a number of trendy features. Belonging to their Artix series, it is called Oris Artix GT Chronograph (Ref. 674 7661 4434) and is not only equipped with a trendy black ceramic bezel but also features a nice linear “progress bar”-style small seconds indicator.
The also new-for-2015 Replica Oris Artix GT watch has a day/date dial and isn’t associated with Audi Sport, but has the same case and a very similar dial with different complications. On the wrist, Oris uses the same 44mm-wide steel Artix-style case that we’ve seen on the limited edition chronograph, and other past models.
The Artix GT Day Date and Artix GT Chronograph relate to the previous models in name alone. Both watches are a part of Oris’ Motorsport series and are easily recognizable as sports watches. The black dial with bright hands and indices feels very modern and resembles the dashboard instruments

More on Oris Artix GT. Oris Artix Collection Review. This is the best 21st-century design of the Oris collection. It combines the Oris complication design with the avant-garde case. It gives rise to the Oris Artix GT collection. The Oris Artrix GT collection is a steel sport watch with lots of interesting features.
Aesthetically, the Artix GT Chronograph is a redesign of an earlier watch sharing the same name. The earlier iteration was quite similar in appearance. The biggest difference was that it had a linear retrograde seconds function at nine o’clock—a feature largely unique to Oris.
Oris merges and brings the best of both approaches to the table. The Artix GT is both durable and intricate. It has the backing of an inclusive and comfortable warranty. You’ve got over a thousand days to brandish your Artix GT. During that time you’ll have the full assurances of the manufacturer. That’s quite an insurance policy.

ORIS Watch AND WILLIAMS F1

It’s strange how sponsorship pairings just click sometimes. Intentional or no, every once in a while, a team and their sponsor will resemble each other beyond the superficialities of brand partnership, and the resulting synergy can produce some truly great successes. A great example of this in the watchmaking world is the 11-year partnership between Oris and Williams Grand Prix Engineering. Both companies, while not necessarily the flashiest or most well-known in their respective sectors, have a reputation for quietly producing some of the most capable, technically advanced machinery in their fields.oris williams f1 replica
The reasons for this between the two varies, however. In the case of Oris, while the company produces cutting-edge and innovative mechanical pieces such as the Big Crown ProPilot Altimeter, the first-ever wristwatch with a mechanical altimeter (find out more on that in Mark McArthur Christie’s excellent write- up here), the brand has simply never captured the greater public’s interest in the same way that the larger Swiss watchmakers have.
Williams, however, is a different story. While modern fans (up until this season) have had to watch the weakest decade in the team’s history, those with longer memories will know the truth. This team, which hasn’t captured either the driver’s or the constructor’s title in 17 years, is the second-most successful overall across the sport’s 55-year history, surpassed only by Scuderia Ferrari. Williams has racked up nine constructor’s championships (1980, 1981, 1986, 1987, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1996, and 1997), and seven world driver’s championships (Alan Jones in 1980, Keke Rosberg in 1982, Nelson Piquet in 1987, Nigel Mansell in 1992, Alain Prost in 1993, Damon Hill in 1996, and Jacques Villeneuve in 1997) since its inception in 1978.oris williams day date
Since then, Williams has had a reputation for technical innovation in their cars, from 1980’s FW07 which perfected the ground effect concept pioneered in the Lotus 78, to the brutally powerful and aerodynamically clean FW11 of 1986, to a car that more than two decades later is widely regarded as the most technologically advanced racing car of all time- the 1992 FW14B. Williams’ 1992 entry into the Formula One World oris williams f1 chronographChampionship was and still is a technological marvel, with a laundry list of innovations- the semi-automatic gearbox, traction control, anti-lock brakes, and perhaps the most advanced technology ever fitted to a Formula 1 car- the active suspension. Essentially a computer-controlled hydraulic system connected to the car’s suspension, the active suspension system preloaded the car for each corner of a racetrack, allowing the car to stay far more level than otherwise, and vastly improving aerodynamic efficiency. oris williams f1 skeleton replica
In the hands of Nigel Mansell and Riccardo Patrese, the car won 10 of the 16 rounds that year, and Mansell glided to an easy driver’s championship with 9 grand prix victories. The car was so dominant, in fact, that almost all of its technologies, with the exception of the semi-automatic gearbox, were outlawed by 1994, ostensibly in the interest of “promoting driver ability”. The team remained a major force through the 90’s, but by the mid-2000s had hit a slump from which they still have not fully recovered. 2014, however, has brought new hope to the Grove, UK-based squad, in the form of new Mercedes power, arguably their strongest driver lineup in years with Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas, and a new title sponsor with a legendary history in motorsports- Martini and Rossi. So far this season, Williams Martini Racing has shown itself to have perhaps the second fastest car on the grid, and an impressive midseason string of podiums by young Finnish driver Valtteri Bottas have already made this Williams’ most successful season in many years.
Accompanying this Williams resurgence are a strong lineup of team-branded watches from Oris. The attractive black TT1 Williams F1 Team Day Date is a solid automatic 3-hander with an interesting lugless case design, and the subtle blue accents bring vibrance to the black-on-black-on-black piece. At 43mm, it is slightly on the large side, but as it is lugless, it wears far smaller than it is. The real gem of the collection, however, is the WilliamsF1 Team Limited Edition Chronograph, limited to 600 pieces to celebrate the team’s 600th Grand Prix.
A 12-hour automatic chrono with dials at 12 and 6, and a surprisingly well-balanced dial, this watch shares the blue accent color scheme with the TT1 Day Date, but in my opinion wears it far better. In addition, the lugs are free-swinging, similar to the design of the Laco Atacama (reviewed here), adding versatility to the 44mm size, and blend into a very high-quality rubber deployant strap. The WilliamsF1 Team Limited Edition generally retails for around $220, and the TT1 Williams F1 Team Day Date goes for around $230.

oris chronoris date watch fake

Originally released in 1970, the Oris Chronoris faithfully played the role of motorsports watch within Oris’ dense lineup of sports watches. Re-released a few years back as a retro-racing inspired chronograph, we now see a third version which fully embraces the watch world’s infatuation with all things vintage-inspired. The new replica Oris Chronoris Date is a faithful reinterpretation of the 1970s watch, sporting the dual crown design with internal elapsed time bezel in a 39mm tonneau case.
Oris, who have been collaborating with Williams F1 Racing since 2003, are no strangers to motorsports. With this in mind, their collection is unsurprisingly largely made up of the standard divers and sports watches, along with contemporary pieces such as the carbon fiber cased Oris Williams Chronograph Carbon Fiber Extreme. The addition of the Oris Chronoris Date to their collection represents Oris’ continued drive (get it?) to exist on both ends of the spectrum, producing watches which exist at the tip of the technological spear as well as pieces which harken back to their own history with driver’s watches.
Visually at least, the new Oris Chronoris Date fake is a near perfect replica of one of their former Chronoris Star models which sported a single pusher-actuated Cal. 725 stop seconds chronograph movement as well as an internal bezel. This modern edition is comparatively simple, tracking only time and date, but with an elapsed time bezel to manage lap or other interval timing.
The Chronoris Date’s mostly grey dial with orange accents is sharp and, to my eye, doesn’t look exactly like anything else out there at the moment, an achievement in itself. Many seventies inspired watches are a little on the loud side, attempting to blend too many colors, complications, and sub-dials. The replica Oris Chronoris Date dial is actually pretty easy on the eyes with its grey and black sector dial, simple white stick hands, orange sweep seconds hand, and tasteful internal bezel also in silver with an orange twelve o’clock indicator to match the seconds hand. The black on white date wheel is in its usual three o’clock position. Viewed together, the package is highly legible while still maintaining an unmistakable racing look.
Dual crown watches were highly popular when the original Chronoris came out and their inclusion in this new piece speaks to the feel Oris were after when designing it. With one crown at four o’clock for setting or winding the Oris Cal 733, which is based on the Sellita SW200, and another at two o’clock for manipulating the bidirectional internal bezel, the Oris Chronoris Date speaks loudly about its seventies design heritage. It’s important to note here that the crowns are differently shaped with one having fine grooves and the other being knurled for grip. This would also allow the wearer to distinguish which crown they were manipulating without looking at it, which would be, I don’t know, helpful? The tonneau-shaped case with brushed top surfaces and polished sides aids in the old school look and adds some heft to an otherwise fairly narrow (by current standards) watch.
Sellita’s SW200 movement (which we’ve covered in depth, here) is a fairly obvious choice for a piece like this which Oris of course wants to keep Swiss-made but which perhaps doesn’t inherently require anything more complicated or interesting. The SW200 is more or less exactly the same thing as the ETA 2824-2, albeit produced by Sellita, and has proven itself to be a capable and durable timekeeper. For a time and date only watch like the Oris Chronoris Date, in a world where ETA is preparing to limit the availability of their movements, we can expect to see a lot of these SW200 movements in future pieces from various brands.
Completing the vintage aesthetic is the choice of strap which is either a black or brown distressed leather strap with a signed buckle, a textured grey NATO with a signed buckle and keeper, or a very old school looking, almost “beads of rice” style bracelet.

ORIS CHRONORIS DATE REVIEW

Given the vintage inspiration, the ChronOris Date features a steel case back rather than the display case back commonly found on most modern Oris models. From the top of the domed sapphire to the flank of the steel case back, the ChronOris Date is 12.5 mm thick.
The Chronoris Date is a modern version of the vintage watch, of the same name, released by Oris 47 years ago. The Chronoris was first introduced in 1970 and was a stop-seconds chronograph, not to mention the first chronograph for the Swiss maker. The name, as you might have guessed, is a combination of the words chronograph and Oris, and the last Chronoris was released in 2005,

As the name suggests, the watch pulls inspiration from a racing chronograph Oris released back in 1970
The Replica Oris Chronoris Date is offered in a variety of straps and bracelets – from grey fabric to leather (in both black and brown options) but the original 15-link bracelet is where Oris excels – a cool 70s metal bracelet which enhances the retro-appeal of what is essentially a heritage interpretation.
Oris first paid tribute to the Chronoris in 2005, in the shape of a retro-themed chronograph, and once again have honoured the one that started it all, with the release of the Oris Chronoris Date. The case. The case of the Chronoris Date takes most of its design cues from its retro predecessor.
Oris’s racing chronograph – the Chronoris from 1970 – has been back on the scene since last year, this time making its appearance as a three-hand model: the Chronoris Date. The oval stainless-steel case, a rotating inner bezel for timing minute intervals, the date display and the three centrally mounted hands are unchanged.
Oris Chronoris Date Watch Replica Chronoris derives its name from ‘chronograph’ and ‘Oris.’ Unlike the 1970 stops seconds, this modern timepiece has only the time and date but with a well-developed timer meant for sporting activities like motorsport.

Oris Bc3 Advanced Day Date fake

Oris first introduced the BC3 (Big Crown) collection back in 1999, and since that time it’s been a mainstay within Oris’ cataloge of sports watches. Though pilot inspired, the BC3 range has stood apart from other watches in the genre by offering something a bit more aesthetically different, namely the large, geometric case that has remained largely unchanged (give or take a few details) since its inception. Oris Bc3 Advanced Day Date fake
For 2016, Oris revisited the BC3 line with the release of the BC3 Advanced Day/Date in gunmetal grey, a finish that gives the watch a cool, aggressive look, but one that’s a bit more versatile than simple black PVD. And at $1,500, it’s relatively well priced for a Swiss-made watch produced by a respected and longstanding firm. The question remains, is it worth adding to your collection? Let’s take a closer look.Oris Bc3 Advanced Day Date
The case is the first thing that really pops with the BC3. It has significant presence, with a slab-sided cylindrical mid-case, angular crown guards, and protruding barreled lugs giving the watch its standout look. The “ORIS”-signed crown, true to name of the model, is big and easy to grasp and operate. Overall, the case geometry is far from subtle, but it is incredibly cool looking (especially on the wrist, but more on that later).
Equally arresting is the color of the plating. Oris calls it gunmetal grey, but I’d liken it to more of an aged pewter look, especially under warm light. It’s an incredibly attractive palette, and it plays well against the dial. Furthermore, Oris makes excellent use of the various case surfaces, most of which are lightly brushed. There is, however, a small polished lip on the bezel where it meets the mid-case, which makes for some nice contrast against the the rest of the case. If you’ve ever handled an Oris watch, then you know that the case finishing never disappoints. Oris Bc3 Advanced Day Date 42mm
Flip the watch over and you’re met with an open case back showcasing the Sellita SW 200-1 (which is in itself an ETA 2824 clone) with a custom red Oris rotor, a feature found on all Oris automatics. This is probably the weakest point on the watch. As a matter of preference, I’d much rather have a solid case back if a movement is left largely without decoration as it is here. That said, it’s not unattractive (the red rotor does add a bit more flair to the design), and I’m sure most customers would prefer to see the exposed movement, decorated or not.
The dial then is a matching gunmetal grey with a subtle sunburst finish. Sunburst dials, when done poorly, can really cheapen the look of a watch. That’s not what we have here, with the very fine dial finishing complementing the case brushing quite nicely. Together, the two elements come together to give the watch a bit of a tactical look.
As I wrote above, the dial has a lot flieger DNA, but it’s not derivative. There is a primary hours index with large Arabic numerals. A secondary index along the very outer edge of the dial represents the seconds/minutes, with heavier indices at every five-minute interval. Rather than have a triangle at 12, the indices double up. The hands then are stylized swords, featuring white-painted borders and lume-filled centers. The second hand is a long black needle with a white tip. The dial and hands feature tan-colored Super-LumiNova, what some might refer to as faux patina. The effort here feels less like an attempt to ape aged tritium, and more like an intentional match against the warmer tones of the case and dial.
Above six are two centrally aligned day/date windows. The discs have a black base with white printing, so they’re not an exact match to the dial. However, the slight contrast here works as the implementation of the two apertures at six maintains the overall symmetry of the design. Day/date complications often feel intrusive when placed at three, but the stacked approach at six feels well thought out. Furthermore, the day/date is balanced by the Oris logo and “AUTOMATIC” below 12.
The sample shown here came on a heavy-duty, two-piece nylon strap. It’s well made and rugged, and the olive coloring matches the warm tones of the case. The strap is a bit stiff at first, partly due to it being two layers of stacked nylon, but it breaks in quickly and eventually molds to the wrist. The strap also comes with matching hardware, and like the case, it is expertly machined and finished. Overall, the pairing works, but this watch would also have zero issue taking on a number of different leather straps should the occasion call for dressing the piece up a bit.
On the wrist, the BC3 has some major presence. I wrote above that this is not a subtle watch. It’s a solid chunk of metal and it wears as such. That said, given the dimensions–42mm by 51.5mm, and a thickness of just 11.5mm–it remains a perfectly balanced sports watch. The case design is what makes the BC3 feel like a larger watch (43mm or so), but it’s not unreasonable on the wrist. And as you can see below, it’s relatively easy to pair with an outfit of blues and browns.
Overall, I ended my trial run with the latest entry into the BC3 catalog highly impressed. As someone who has handled numerous watches from Oris, I knew I wouldn’t be let down with the fit and finish. I wasn’t. What was surprising, however, was just how unique the watch felt despite it being a riff on a familiar genre. And at a list price of $1,500, the Oris punches well above its weight class. If you’ve had your eye on this one, it won’t disappoint.
