Swiss Hunter Team Limited Edition Watch from Oris

Sep 11, 2009
The renowned watch manufacturer Oris is proud to unveil the newest model from its aviation line in order to mark the life of the celebrated Hawker Hunter jet.

The amazing Hunter’s first flight, which occurred in the UK in 1951, definitely conquered the world. On arriving to Switzerland seven years later, it turned into a heart of the Swiss Air Force.

In spite of being retired, the Hunter has never ceased its flights, which is possible due to the Swiss Hunter Team of the ‘Fliegermuseum Altenrhein’. The latter is represented by a group of pilots, who used to belong to the Swiss Air Force and were encouraged to fly by the Hunter.

Manufactured by Oris, the Swiss Hunter Limited Edition watch mirrors the strength of the jet, as well as its design quality.

The anthracite PVD-treated case, measuring 46mm, exposes a graceful silhouette with its soft curves, a bevelled top ring and a large screw-down crown. The dial is performed in the traditional Oris style of a cockpit flight instrument. Another particular highlight of this limited series pilot’s timepiece is the diminutive Hunter jet, nestled on the pointer calendar hand.

Inside this model is the top-of-the-line Oris-made 644 movement, which is viewable from exhibition window in the case-back. The Swiss Hunter Team’s logo on the case-back is demonstration of the brand’s support for the pilots, who ensure flying of the legendary Hunter.

The Oris Swiss Hunter Team Limited Edition watch is offered in an impressive box set, which embraces an original Hunter ejection seat safety splint key ring, featuring the same limited series number as the timepiece itself.
