Everything is achieved via a laser treatment that changes the watch’s titanium dial in such away that the light waves that get reflected back to your eyes only contain a certain spectrum of the visible light, and therefore give you an impression of color. Normal light contains all the colors of the visible spectrum (and more that are not visible). If a certain range – the longer red waves, for example – gets destroyed, only the medium green and shorter blue waves get reflected. It’s color creation by addition. We’ve also added a second layer that splits the visible light into its components and creates a shimmering rainbow effect. How you see this depends on your viewing angle.
A dial like no other. The ProPilot X Calibre 400 Laser’s dial is produced using an innovative technique never seen before in Swiss mechanical watchmaking.
The ProPilot X Calibre 400 follows in a long line of Oris pilot’s watches going back to the early 1900s, but its power lies beyond its associations: it’s a mechanical joy machine.
Inside the ProPilot X Calibre 400 is one of our new generation of high-performance automatics. Conceived entirely in-house by our skilled engineers, Calibre 400 Series movements all feature elevated levels of anti-magnetism, a five-day power reserve and a 10-year warranty. We call this The New Standard.
