Oris Big Crown Pointer Date D.26 286 HB-RAG Limited Edition
This limited edition Oris is named D.26 286 HB-RAG and it is a new partnership between Oris and “Hangar 31“, a group of volunteer enthusiasts who preserve and fly the historic Dewoitine D.26 aircraft from their base in the Swiss town of Grenchen, in the foothills of the Jura Mountains.
This Limited Edition is very much similar to the standard Oris Big Crown Pointer Date, with its 40mm stainless steel case, with fluted bezel and oversized crown. This limited edition comes with 2 different leather straps (one in light brown, one in dark brown) and a special leather pouch, both inspired by finishes and materials found in the D.26’s cockpit. Inside the case is a Sellita SW 200 Swiss automatic movement, modified to display the date with a pointing hand. The back is also specific to this edition, which is embossed with an image of the D.26 286 HB-RAG plane, and also carries an engraving of the limited edition number.
This Oris Big Crown Pointer Date D.26 286 HB-RAG Limited Edition will be produced in 1931 pieces and priced to a very reasonable 1,850 Swiss Francs.
