Now this is a very cool watch that is coming out, from one of my favourite value-oriented Swiss Watch companies. It is the world’s first automatic mechanical altimeter watch, quite the feat for a company like Oris, considering there are so many other Swiss watch companies with roots in Aviation.


The altimeter is activated using the side-mounted Altimeter crown, and it can measure altitude up to 15,000 feet or 4,500 meters. The units will depend on which model you have, feet or meters. Such a cool feature that I probably won’t use much, but would love to own. Kind of like the Panerai Depth gauge. I usually identify Oris with their Dive watches, as their Pilot offerings in the past have not impressed me… this is different. There is a good chance I will be getting one of these!
