Oris Unveils Challenge International de Tourisme 1932 Watch

Oct 24, 2012
Oris unveils its new Challenge International de Tourisme 1932 watch. The novelty is devoted to the legendary team that won the challenging race held in Berlin from August 12th to 28th 1932.

The race the International Tourist Plane Challenge - was organized by the FAI (Federation Aeronautique Internationale or World Air Sports Federation). It represented a three-part competition for pilots technical, rally-type and speed tests. It was won by Franciszek Zwirko of Poland.

The new Oris watch demonstrates an understated vintage look. The 44 mm case is rendered in steel. It is built with a screw-lock crown and a knurled bezel. The face of the timepiece is shielded by a cambered sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on the inside. The case-construction boasts 100-meter water-resistance.

The knurled bezel of the new Oris watch has been inspired by the models of the Big Crown collection devoted to aviation. Hinting at the aircraft starting number in the race, the central seconds hand features a counterweight with a small 06. The case-back reveals a silhouette of the RWD-6 plane and an engine-turned decorative pattern. It also features the limited edition number.

The black dial indicates the time with help of polished applied numerals and Superluminova-coated hands and hour-markers. The date window is found at 3 oclock.

The Challenge International de Tourisme 1932 is animated by an automatic mechanical movement - Calibre SW 200. The 26-jewel mechanism, operating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, provides a 38-hour power reserve.

The novelty is presented on a brown leather strap with a steel buckle.

The new Oris Challenge International de Tourisme 1932 watch is available in a limited edition of 1,923 pieces. It is accompanied by a presentation book with a certificate and a Zipp cigarette-lighter.
