Oris Creates Dizzy Gillespie Limited Edition Watch

Jun 05, 2010
The world-famous watch company Oris has launched a new timekeeper devoted to John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie, an American jazz trumpet player, bandleader, singer, and composer.

Named after this outstanding personality, a major figure in the development of bebop and modern jazz, this remarkable Oris watch is offered in an edition strictly limited to 1917 pieces. This number symbolizes the great musician’s year of birth.

The novel Dizzy Gillespie watch is available with a rectangular stainless-steel case based on the brand’s Junior model of 1970. Bold and angular, this mechanical timekeeping companion is designed in the style of the classic modern.

The dark-brown dial captures immediate attention with its inclined plaid structure, which successfully conveys the jazzy spirit. The feeling is further enhanced by the dynamic ‘improvised’ numerals treated with a luminous compound. The case-back exposes an engraved portrait of Dizzy with trumpet. It is kept company by the individual number of the watch.

The Oris Dizzy Gillespie Limited Edition watch is mounted on a smooth black gaucho leather strap. It features a dark-brown seam, which makes a fine match with the color of the dial.
