Oris was established in 1904 and is a watch brand from Switzerland. The brand name comes from the name of a river. After the baptism of the quartz crisis, in the mid-1980s, the business philosophy of ‘only producing mechanical watches with moderate prices and unique styles’ was gradually established, and it gradually began to revive from the Asian market. It is currently one of the few independent Swiss pure mechanical watch brands one.
Oris Culture Watch 01 683 7644 4084-Set The case is made of multi-piece stainless steel, which is completely different from the ordinary one made of stainless steel, so its difficulty will be reduced a lot.
The mirror is made of spherical cut inside and outside anti-refractive sapphire crystal glass, which can effectively reduce most of the refracted light from entering the naked eye, which makes the watch clearer when reading.
What is important is the dial scales. This black and white color design, like piano keys, is elegant and fits the purpose. The case back is a sealed stainless steel case with ‘Oscar Peterson’ engraved on it, highlighting its homage to jazz pianist Oscar Peterson. In addition, the ‘Lion King Fuqin’ picture was engraved with a witty and humorous method, and the style of the king appeared. The limited edition of 97 pieces makes this model even more meaningful. The Oris 01 683 7644 4084-Set watch has functions of calendar and chronograph. The calendar is located in a small chronograph dial at 6 o’clock and is displayed in relatively large numbers. However, it does not have a jump structure, so that table friends can not enjoy the thrill of jumping instantly at midnight. In addition, it cannot recognize the big and small months, it also needs to manually adjust the date multiple times a year.
The chronograph function consists of a central chronograph second hand, a 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock and a 30-minute counter at 12 o’clock, which are also operated by buttons on both sides of the crown.
Functionally, it is no different from most other watches with a chronograph function, mainly practical.
The Oris 01 683 7644 4084-Set watch uses the Oris 683 movement, which is an improvement from the ETA 7750. The ETA 7750 movement has many ETA patented structures that can improve the performance of the movement. One of the three ETA ace movements is used in many brand watches, including Scherner, Tissot, Longines, etc. due to high production and low price, but it has good plasticity. The Oris 683 movement is adapted from the 7750 movement. From the layout of the dial, it retains the iconic layout of the 7750 movement (the 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock chronograph parts), and displays the calendar at 3 o’clock. The window moved to the 6 o’clock position and the small seconds dial was cancelled. In addition, the brand has improved some of its positions and modified the automatic top, making it a high-precision movement, and using the brand’s signature red inlay on the automatic top to indicate its precision. This is also the brand’s general practice, compared to the commemoration and tribute of this watch, slightly inadequate.
The Oris Culture Series 01 683 7644 4084-Set watch draws inspiration from musical works and incorporates the design of the keys into an elegant posture. The watch has a large diameter of 44 mm, and the thin bezel also leaves enough space for the dial. The stainless steel case makes the watch less susceptible to corrosion by some liquids. Functionally, the goal is to pursue practicality, stability, and precision. Therefore, the movement uses the Oris 683 movement, which is currently a 7750 movement that has a good price-performance ratio, and has been tested by the brand’s multiple programs. Positioning, decorated with a red automatic rotor.
This watch is limited to 97 pieces, which can be described as difficult to find. The Oscar Peterson logo is engraved on the dial and case back. The addition of the keys also makes it have a lot in common with the piano and even music. However, it adds a timer. After the function, it seems to be biased towards the Japanese with practical watches, with less appreciation and commemorative taste. In addition, compared to other brands’ commemoration of limited edition watches, it also seems a bit ‘lazy’.
