When it comes to jaw-dropping accessories that men crave but rarely actually need, few are as appealing as watches. There’s something ironically timeless about designs that contain more dials and digits than a 19th century telephone exchange and despite the fact that 99.9% of people will never know how to use them to go diving or measure their altitude above sea-level, we want these features and we want them now.
And the reason is simple – they look damn cool – certainly platitudes that can be afforded to the Oris Big Crown ProPilot Altimeter. It’s the world’s first automatic mechanical watch with an altimeter. It has sapphire top glass with double-sided anti-reflective coating. It has water resistance up to 10 bar. It has an automatic winding, bi-directionally rotating red rotor. The dial is only available in black.
But none of that matters to you, because you want one because it looks damn cool, and that’s the only reason you’ll ever need.
