Think about it for a second… What is the main element of a dive watch? Its water obstruction? Its second hand? Its bezel? Obviously, it is a combination of every one of these components be that as it may, and I am certain favorable to divers will concur, THE ultimate feature of a dive watch is the moment hand. For wellbeing reasons, the moment hand is critical to computing the leftover dive time and decompression stages. Oris has been very much aware of this already for certain years thus this year presents a new form of the Regulateur ‘Der Meistertaucher’, a watch that has been intensively thought through, worked for supportive of divers and offers a very appealing unique display.

When it comes to professional-arranged dive watches, Oris’ notoriety has been immovably settled. Consider the Aquis Depth Gauge , the Prodiver 1000 or just the Aquis Date . Every one of them are durable, effectively thought out, reason assembled watches with acknowledgment as genuine instruments by the individuals who, eventually, have authority: divers. These watches were not made to be work area divers (even on the off chance that they may be often used as such… however that’s another debate). Notwithstanding these, Oris has gone what I consider “a step further” for dive watches, presenting a watch that not just offers the water obstruction, the compliance with ISO-6425 principles and the required robustness, however that underscores the vital component of a dive watch: the moment hand, by employing a controller show. This watch is the Oris Regulateur ‘Der Meistertaucher’ and, for Baselworld 2017, Oris has chosen to give it a facelift, as per style of the new Aquis assortment .

Why am I featuring the moment hand on a dive watch? Indeed, combined with the turning bezel, the moment hand is critical to ascertaining remaining dive time and to quantify decompression stages, two components significant to the security of divers. All things considered, what is the most ideal approach to have a simple to peruse, simple to see minute hand? The appropriate response is straightforward: a controller show. A controller depends on non-coaxial hands, which means the hour and moment hands are isolated. The moment hand is in the middle, while the hour, a significant element obviously yet optional when jumping, is appeared by a different, more modest hand on a sub-dial at 3. This detaches the vital snippet of data for a diver, who can set dive time by adjusting the moment hand to the hour long scale on the uni-directional turning bezel. Different highlights of this presentation are a little second (a running sign is needed by ISO principles) and a date.

This highlight is key to the special appeal of the ‘Der Meistertaucher’, not another watch for Oris, anyway a specialty piece that has become kind of a symbol. (In 1999, Oris turned into the principal watch company to bring this customary complication into a dive watch). To all the more likely coordinate this watch into the assortment, the brand gave it a similar facelift as the 2017 form of the Aquis, which means a somewhat slimmer case, updated crown insurance piece, reshaped hauls and diverse files on the dial. In general, the watch feels somewhat more compact than previously and furthermore more modern.

The 43.5mm instance of the Oris Regulateur ‘Der Meistertaucher’ is totally given to productivity: lightweight gratitude to the utilization of titanium (for the case, the clasp and the extra arm band), very much secured, intended for divers, with a 300m water obstruction and an programmed helium get away from valve, fabricated into the side of the case at 9, an elastic tie or a wristband, both with a snappy change augmentation framework (so you can tie the watch around a jumping suit). The dial likewise follows a similar thought, with unmistakably recognized hands, because of brilliant tones: all optional signs are white painted (hours, seconds, date, files) while the principle pointers – the moment hand and initial 15-minutes of the ceramic bezel’s scale – are painted in splendid red. This presentation is controlled by a programmed type, the Oris Cal. 749, in view of Sellita SW 220-1.

The new Oris Regulateur ‘Der Meistertaucher’ keeps the allure of the model, which means the one of a kind appeal of the controller (being one of the solitary controller dive watches accessible), combined with an incredible execution. Complication is utilized here for one objective just; making a significantly more secure and more functional watch. This Oris ‘Der Meistertaucher’ is a specialty offer however one that is really relevant. The 2017 facelift is welcomed, and brings a modern feel to this appropriate instrument watch. Value: EUR 2,900, including titanium arm band, extra elastic lash with collapsing clasp and water-safe case with tie evolving devices. Accessible in May 2017.
