Bringing joy to luxury watchmaking
In the realm of luxury watchmaking, a sense of seriousness often dominates, with many brands focusing on ultra-elegance and austerity. However, Oris aims to challenge this trend by partnering with Disney and The Muppets to create a playful and colorful edition of their ProPilot X Calibre 400 watch. The result is a delightful timepiece that celebrates the cheerful character of Kermit the Frog.

An unique timepiece with playful features
The special edition ProPilot X Calibre 400 watch not only pays homage to the iconic frog with its bright green dial but also features a unique touch on the date window at 6 o’clock. On the first day of every month, instead of the number 1, Kermit’s happy face appears—a detail that’s sure to bring smiles and amusement.
A palette of green reflections
The vibrant green dial of the Kermit Edition offers a range of reflections, transitioning from apple green to a more sophisticated sage green depending on the ambient light and angle of the wrist. This versatility makes the watch both fun and elegant, fitting for various occasions.
Classic design meets impressive power reserve
Beyond its playful exterior, the Oris ProPilot X Kermit Edition boasts a 39mm diameter titanium case and a comfortable multi-link titanium bracelet. The watch is powered by the Oris 400 caliber, developed by the Swiss brand, which offers an impressive 120-hour (5-day) power reserve. This feature can be admired through the transparent case back—though a frog-green tinted mass would have been a delightful addition.
The special, non-limited Kermit edition of the Oris ProPilot X is priced at €4,400, a €200 increase from the classic version. This unique collaboration between Oris and Disney‘s The Muppets brings a touch of light-hearted joy to the world of luxury watches, making it a sought-after piece for fans of both the watch brand and the beloved frog.
