Manufacturers of Swiss made watches since 1904, Oris breathes new life into its partnership with Australia’s Flying Doctor Service by releasing a second limited edition watch. The Royal Flying Doctor Service provides emergency healthcare to people living in rural areas of Australia using a fleet of more than 60 aircraft bases around the country.
The Oris Royal Flying Doctor Limited Edition II features an upgraded pulsometer, scaling it over 20 heartbeats to take a patient pulse at a faster speed. A bi-directional rotating bezel means measurement can start at any time. Reliable and easy to read, the new watch has an oversized 45mm stainless steel case, black dial and clear Super-LumiNova numerals and hands.
Also featured are several additions to reflect the relationship between Oris and the Royal Flying Doctor service. The organisation’s logo appears on the dial ring at 12 o’clock and embossed on the case back. The case also shows a medal bearing the logo.
