Oris Big Crown Challenge International de Tourisme 1932 Limited Edition Automatic
This Oris Big Crown Challenge International de Tourisme 1932 Limited Edition Automatic (ref 733.7669.40.84.SET-LS) was inspired by the RWD-6 aircraft which won the 1932 Challenge International de Tourisme, and is in a 44mm x 12.5mm satin finished SS screw back case with polished coin-edge bezel and display window, water resistant to 100 meters. It has a very slightly domed sapphire crystal, and the screw down crown is signed. The black dial features white gold Arabic numerals, brightly fluorescent square markers, and quickset date at three. This watch is on a signed dark brown leather strap with white stitching and matching SS tang type buckle, with the most minor creasing as evidence of careful previous use. It is in near mint condition, without a scratch or other flaw on the case or crystal, minor scuffs on the tops and backs of the lugs. The Oris cal 733 (base cal Sellita SW 200-1) 26 jewel automatic movement maintains accurate time within a tolerance of seven seconds per day. This preowned, limited edition Oris pilots’ watch, which will be sold with its full set including boxes, papers, numbered limited edition certificate, paper hang tag, and Oris signed Zippo lighter, has a current list price (MSRP) of $1850.
