Hands-On: Oris Regulateur 'Der Meistertaucher'
The Regulateur “Der Meistertaucher” isn’t Oris’ first regulator plunge watch.
If you consider everything, this sort of show is really ideal for a plunge watch. While it was initially utilized for logical tickers and clocks utilized by watchmakers to set different watches, a plunge instrument is another extraordinary use of the thought. When under the water, you don’t actually have to understand what hour it is – you simply should have the option to follow passed minutes utilizing the moment hand and the pivoting jump bezel. This arrangement allows you to do exactly that, while limiting the other mess and improving legibility.
Oris was the principal watchmaker to make a plunge guaranteed regulator, almost 20 years prior back in 1999. Presently, Oris is taking the thought and applying it to the recently refreshed Aquis assortment, giving us the Regulateur “Der Meistertaucher” (which interprets from German as Master Diver, incidentally). This new watch has a 43.5mm case made of titanium to decrease weight and increment comfort. It comes with a coordinating titanium connect wristband just as the red elastic plunging lash you find in the photographs here. Inverse the titanium crown and crown watches at three o’clock you’ll discover a helium get away from valve incorporated into the case at nine o’clock ( however you understand what our inhabitant plunge master thinks about those… ).
The enormous bolt formed moment hand is incredibly clear, with its radiant fill and red outline.
What makes this a particularly utilitarian jump device however is the combination of the dial design and the pivoting bezel. In the first place, there’s the bezel, which isn’t too strange. It’s uni-directional and has a matte dark clay trim with markings in both white and red, the last throughout the previous 15 minutes in the commencement. The matte dark dial, then again, is the thing that separates this watch. At three o’clock is a somewhat curiously large sub-dial showing the hours with a glowing hand, and to one side is a more modest sub-dial that shows the seconds. The most unmistakable component however is that huge bolt molded moment hand with glowing fill and a brilliant red framework. Basically in case you’re utilizing this on a jump you set the bezel against that moment hand and afterward have a solitary, intense commencement to stress about.
You needn’t bother with the date on a watch this way, yet Oris has made a pleasant showing with least making it prudent here.
The date window is elegantly tucked down at six o’clock and matches the dial’s tone to keep things prudent. I don’t believe it’s essential here, however it’s not prominent by any means. At last, the entire bundle is water impervious to 300 meters, additionally noted down at the lower part of the dial.
Powering the Regulateur “Der Meistertaucher” is the Oris type 749, which depends on the Sellita SW 220-1. The two greatest alterations are the repositioning of the hands to make this a regulator and the evacuation of the day of the week pointer from the Sellita. The development has 28 gems, hacking seconds, and a 38-hour power reserve.
There’s no doubt this is a major watch, however it’s an instrument after all.
There are no doubt – this is a major watch. At the point when you combine the 43.5mm width with the 13.5mm thickness, the rakish math of the case, and the powerful crown defenders, you get an extremely significant piece of wristwear. All things considered, if huge watches are your thing and you wouldn’t fret the size, the titanium development and comfortable elastic lash do make the watch wear fairly well for something so significant. I could see the size being a gigantic advantage as well in the event that you needed to real utilize this for its planned reason, as the huge dial makes for amazingly high legibility.
The Oris Regulateur “Der Meistertaucher” is valued at $3,150 and comes in a waterproof box with a titanium wristband, an elastic lash, and a tie evolving instrument. For additional, visit Oris on the web .
