His finest hours
Oris marks the life, legacy and humanitarianism of baseball Hall-ofFamer Hank Aaron, one of the sport’s all-time greats, on and off the field
We’re delighted to announce a new collaboration between Oris and The Hank Aaron Chasing the Dream Foundation, a US-based non-profit. Henry Louis “Hank” Aaron was one of the greatest athletes and humanitarians of the past half century.
Covering the bases
Oris presents the Hank Aaron Limited Edition, a classic based on the Big Crown that captures the story of a great humanitarian
Just as people give watches to mark special occasions, so we’ve created a watch to remember one of baseball’s most special men. The Hank Aaron Limited Edition is dedicated to the extraordinary life and humanitarian work of Hank Aaron, a baseball Hall-of-Famer who devoted his life to improving the chances of others. The watch is based on Oris’s signature design, the Big Crown Pointer Date, with touches that point to the great man and his record-breaking career.
The colour palette of blue, red and white is inspired by Hank Aaron’s famous baseball uniform. The palette is subtly applied to reflect Aaron’s humble attitude: in the blue-outlined red numerals; in the red-outlined blue minutes ring that runs around the dial; and in the blue leather strap, which is finished with white stitching akin to the stitching on a baseball glove. It comes with an interchangeable blue, red and white NATO fabric strap and a strap change tool. Beyond, the watch is the familiar Big Crown, with a smooth, ergonomic round case in 40mm of stainless steel; a central pointer date hand with a red tip; a fluted bezel reminiscent of classic pilot’s watches; and an oversized crown, first added to an Oris watch in 1938 as a device for gloved airmen.
The case back is engraved with a motif of Hank Aaron and his famous cross-handed batting stance, another thing that set him apart in the world of baseball.
