Earlier this week, Oris announced their latest partnership with an elite pilot training school based in the Spanish city of Albacete named Tactical Leadership Programme (TLP). The pilot training school was founded in 1978 when TLP was preparing NATO-allied coalition forces for global tactical air operations. To celebrate this latest partnership, Oris has released the Oris TLP Limited Edition, a 750 piece model based on Oris’s famous ProPilot line of pilot timepieces.
The diameter of this new timepiece is 44mm, with the stainless steel case being coated with anti-glare gun metal gray PVD. The gun metal grey certainly fits the part of blending in with the overall dark tones of the watch, letting the colours of the dial do the talking. The green dial is inspired by TLP’s pilot’s flying overalls. The eagle eyes in the TLP logo are decorated with beige details. The hour indices are applied beige numerals which contrast rather well against the green dial. The minute hand on the Oris TLP Limited Edition is black with a red tip. While the red tip stands out against the green dial, going with the colour choice of black might not have been the best choice as it does look too subdued by the dial background.
The movement used inside the Oris TLP Limited Edition is the Oris 752 caliber. As well as powering the minute, hour, and seconds functions, the Oris 752 caliber also allows for enlarged individual day and date windows (located at 3 o’clock), day corrector, fine timing device, and stop-second function. Operating at a frequency of 4Hz (28, 800 Vph), the Oris 752 caliber gives out a power reserve of approximately 38 hours.
Oris is offering the TLP Limited Edition in a green Ventile strap. Ventile is a high-performance textile, invented during the Second World for the British Royal Air Force pilots, that saved the lives of countless pilots who were forced to abandon during operation. Oris Big Crown ProPilot Replica
The Swiss brand is also releasing a bespoke edition of the Oris TLP limited edition model to pilots that are graduating from TLP. This bespoke edition will carry the pilot’s name, programme year, and limited-edition number on the case back. When purchased, the Oris TLP Limited edition will be offered in an olive and orange travel pouch and with a cardholder made from Ventile, where the warranty card will also be located.
