Oris Altimeter Feet 01 793 7775 8734-Set
Oris Watch ProPilot Altimeter Feet 01 793 7775 8734-Set. Meet the new Oris ProPilot Altimeter, the world’s only watch to combine a mechanical altimeter with an automatic mechanical movement. Adding elevated performance and an innovative carbon fibre composite case.
Since 1904, Oris has focussed on developing high-functioning watches that deliver realworld value. They have developed more than 280 unique calibres and countless watches in that time, many of them offering pioneering, useful, easy-to-use complications. The ProPilot Altimeter continued that tradition by accurately relaying the time, air pressure and altitude via a single dial entirely mechanically. Full of innovation, it became a watch pilots, mountaineers, hikers and so-called watchnerds aspired to. Now, after a three-year project, they have made it even better.
The new ProPilot Altimeter 01 793 7775 8734-SET has an improved altimeter module, capable of indicating altitude up to 19,700 feet or 6,000 metres (as before, there are two available configurations in feet as well as meters), where previously the scales topped out at 15,000 feet or 4,500 metres. The new watch's case is in lightweight carbon fibre produced using an innovative process developed and perfected by their partner 9T Labs, a spin-off from the prestigious ETH Zurich university (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology). It houses Calibre 793, a slimline automatic with an improved 56-hour power reserve that sits inside a case 1mm thinner than the original. These upgrades make the new ProPilot Altimeter one of the highest performing, most innovative watches Oris have ever created.
Oris have worked to make the new iteration of the altimeter higher, slimmer as well as lighter. Higher in elevation so the new version can now guage the altitude to 6000m or 19,700 feet (depending on the correct model). Slimmer in case size as the upgraded Calibre 793 movement is a lot slimmer than the previous version with a longer 56 hour power reserve. Lighter in weight due to the use of the pioneering use of the fibre and PEKK composite case material. The new 01 793 7775 8734-Set weighs a mere 98gm.
