Now a certified “climate neutral company”, Swiss watchmaker Oris continues its “Change for the Better” mission with a new collaborative watch created in partnership with Coulson Aviation, the world’s leading aerial firefighting organization.

Built on the design of the Big Crown ProPilot, the Oris Coulson Limited Edition is inspired by the bold spirit of the two partners. The most striking detail is its flamboyant orange gradient dial, a reminder of the dangerous environments to which Coulson’s brave pilots rush to extinguish the largest forest fires at great risk to their lives. The dial is protected by a carbon fiber case produced using a unique and proprietary innovative and patented 3D printing process, employed here for the first time. Designed by the prestigious Swiss university ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich), the process simultaneously prints carbon fiber and a high-quality aerospace polymer, PEKK, and weaves them together to create an ultra-lightweight and extremely rigid material. The process is so precise that it is possible to determine the pattern of the material, whereas those of carbon fiber watch cases are usually random.

On the technical side, the watch houses the highly antimagnetic Oris Calibre 400 automatic, with a power reserve of 120 hours and water resistant to 100 meters (10 bars). A grey PVD plated titanium fixed bezel, screw-down crown and case back, and a black textile strap complete this exceptional watch that weighs only 65 grams.

Founded in 1960 in Canada by Cliff Coulson, Coulson Aviation was originally a logging company. Currently run by Wayne Coulson, the founder’s son and third generation of the family, the family business is the world’s leading aerial firefighting organization. Its mission is to send pilots, aircraft and equipment to forest fire areas around the world to extinguish fires and assist firefighters on the ground, as well as to protect life and the environment.
