This new timepiece from pays tribute to Swiss aviation pioneer Oskar Bider, and the great legacy left behind. The Oskar Bider Limited Edition watch reminds us of accomplishments of this brave man ¨C on July 13, 1913 Bider successfully crossed the Alps, from Bern to Milano, becoming the first flyer to do so. At the same time, he set a new altitude record, reaching 3,600 meters with his Bleriot XI monoplane. And all that at just 22 years of age!

The life of Oskar Bider was quite an eventful one. In June 1911, after he had completed his primary military service, Bider immigrated to Argentina, where he worked as a Gaucho. But it wasn¡¯t long before he returned to Europe; the following year starts an important chain of events for the young Bider. In the French town of Pau, he joined the aviation school run by another pioneer of the field – Louis Bl¨¦riot. Upon getting his pilot¡¯s license, Bider soon crossed the Pyrenees, flying from Pau to Madrid. In 1913, the record year, he also completed the first airmail flight in Switzerland, as well as the first night flight in the country. Sadly, the life of this great pioneer ended too soon ¨C on July 7, 1919, Bider crashed while flying a Nieuport 21 fighter.

But the memory of Oskar Bider continues to live, and Oris is contributing to this remembrance by issuing a limited edition watch, available in just 300 pieces. The timepiece has a 42 mm stainless steel case, with a case-back featuring the engraving of Oskar Bider, which reminds us all of the centenary of the Alpine crossing. The watch has the company¡¯s Big Crown casing, including the distinctive coin edge top ring on the bezel. The water resistance is 30 meters.

The black guilloche dial shows several patterns, all neatly divided between different sections of the dial. First, we have the more elaborate outer part with a combination of indexes and numerals, followed by a simpler central part. This is all completed with three sub-dials, at 6, 9, and 12 o¡¯clock positions. Both hands and indexes feature Super-LumiNova on them, which greatly improves visibility. One last addition to the dial is the date window, found at 3 o¡¯clock position. Finally, the dial is protected with a vintage-style plexi glass.

For the movement, the company used their caliber 774, with 26 jewels, which was based on the Sellita SW500. This is an automatic mechanical movement, with chronograph function. Beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour, the movement features a power reserve of 40 hours.

Finally, the watch is equipped with a dark brown leather strap, completed with a brush-finished pin buckle. The strap nicely complements the steel of the watch, and gives a slightly retro impression, which certainly goes well with the history this timepiece has to tell. Finally, Oris prepared a neat commemorative box in which the watches are sold, which is a nice touch. Oskar Bider Limited Edition is available for 2,500 Swiss Francs.
