The indispensable companion in the journey of a sailor, the compass, is placed on the dial of the Piaget Polo Tourbillon Relatif watch. Its function is not to indicate the position, but to read the time. The frame of the floating tourbillon is suspended at the end of the minute hand, completely separated from the mechanical mechanism that drives it under the dial. When the minute hand synchronously leads the floating tourbillon on the dial, the central dial rotating with the central axis is responsible for the hour indication. Dial like a compass

At the Basel International Watch & Jewellery Show held in March this year, a retro diving watch made of bronze was born, making it the most watched and topical new product during the exhibition One of the timepieces. After more than two months of anticipation, Oris Carl Brashear limited edition watch officially debuted in China. From May 24, Oris official WeChat public platform (WeChat: Oris1904) opened a limited reservation service, and launched the ‘Oris Bronze Club’ VIP reward and return visit program, highlighting Oris’ ‘real watches for real people’ Watchmaking concept.
Oris Carl Brashear Limited Edition pays tribute to brave men who do not fear discrimination and overcome physical obstacles
The Oris Carl Brashear Limited Edition watch has a unique retro look, and it is a tribute to the brave who does not fear discrimination and overcome physical obstacles. Carl Brashear was the first African-American diver in the history of the United States Navy. He graduated from the Naval Dive Search and Rescue School in 1954. In 1966, Brashear unfortunately lost his left leg while salvaging a hydrogen bomb that had crashed into the sea due to an aviation accident. But after rehabilitative training unimaginable by ordinary people, he returned to the diving position in 1968 and became the first amputee diver in the United States. In 1970 he was promoted to be the first African-American navy diver.
As a tribute to the inspirational life of Brashear, the back cover of Oris Carl Brashear Limited Edition is engraved with the Brashear diving helmet pattern and his life motto: ‘It’s not a sin to get knocked down, it’s a sin to stay down ‘. On the case material, Oris used bronze for the first time, inspired by the copper deep diving helmet of the 1950s; as a non-ferrous metal, copper is also a symbol of Brashear’s victory over racial discrimination. The Oris Carl Brashear limited edition watch is designed to be a 65-year replica diving watch released in 2015, with a diameter of 42mm. The copper case is initially shiny and bright. Over time, copper will chemically react with carbon dioxide and water vapor in the air, gradually oxidizing and discoloring. The degree of change varies from person to person, that is, each watch becomes unique with its wearer.
From May 24, Oris official WeChat public platform (WeChat: Oris1904) officially opened Oris Carl Brashear limited edition watch reservation service. Part of the watch sales profits will be donated to the Carl Brashear Foundation to support diving Search and rescue career. At the same time, the ‘Oris Bronze Club’ VIP reward and return visit plan will be launched. Details will be announced through Oris official WeChat public platform.
The Oris Carl Brashear Limited Edition pays tribute to the great fighters who defeated discrimination and physical obstacles, allowing time to breed personality and freedom on the wrist.
