Shape of the nineties

The launch of the Oris Rectangular Classic adds a new dimension to the Oris collection. Developed by the Oris in-house team of watchmakers, the automatic movement is based on a Swiss ETA movement.

The watch indicates the date by means of the typical Oris pointer calendar. The case of the watch is formed around its mechanical heart and it brings an eye-catching character all of its own.

The Oris Rectangular Classic is water resistant to 30 metres. This is ensured by the embossed steel back which is secured by four screws. Inside the case are two replacement screws enabling the watch to be maintained by any professional watchmaker.

Available in 10 micron gold-plated or palladium nickel-plated versions.

Longines' Golden Wing

The new Golden Wing collection from Longines offers models for men and women in all steel, steel and gold, or entirely in 18 carat gold (with or without diamond set bezel) to be worn on a coloured leather strap with an exclusive buckle or on an integrated bracelet. The dials are available in four colours: white, rhodium, gold or midnight blue.

The watches in the Golden Wing collection have a quartz movement, are fitted with a scratchproof sapphire glass and water-resistant to 30 metres. Engraved on their case-back is the winged hourglass, testifying that they are original models assembled in the factory at Saint-Imier where they undergo severe tests.

Jupiter Pilot and Chronospace II

Breitling, the Swiss watch manufacturer which has traditionally specialised in the design, development and production of high quality precision timepieces, especially chronographs, has developed two more new models: Jupiter Pilot and Chronospace II.

Launched in 1952, the Jupiter Pilot's flight computer was designed as a circular slide rule with logarithmic scale, allowing pilots and navigators to effect simple operations such as calculating fuel consumption, mean speed, rate of climb and descent, mile-to-kilometre conversions and more. The new model is redesigned to improve dial legibility, an important feature of any instrument used in an aircraft.

Unlike fixed tachymeter designs, the Chronospace II's exclusive variable tachymeter will measure speeds whatever the distance travelled or the time elapsed. Its technical design facilitates the simple and logical operation of its entire range of functions, which is commanded and controlled directly by the crown.
