Oris is proud to launch the Tycho Brahe Limited Edition. As a Danish nobleman and astronomer in the 16th century, Brahe’s precise research on astronomy and planets allowed the Tycho System to be established. The Tycho system considers that the moon and the sun revolve around the earth, while other planets revolve around the sun, and at the same time orbit with the sun. The new model bears his name features and is equipped with a pointer-type monthly calendar function independently developed by Oris engineers.
At the age of 12, Brach was educated at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. There he discovered his love and talent for astronomy. Brach continued his research in Germany and Switzerland, and saved his research data excellently. It was not until his death in 1601 that his research results were published by Johannes Kepler, a German astrologist and astronomer, one of the leaders of the 17th-century technological revolution. Tycho’s system theory influenced many subsequent physicists, including Isaac Newton, who used Tycho’s observations to create the theory of gravity.
The 42mm dial Oris Tycho Brahe limited watch belongs to the Oris master series, the back cover is engraved with the schematic diagram of the Tycho system. The watch uses the relatively rare pointer-type monthly calendar function developed by Oris. The inner dial and white small hands on the dark blue dial can clearly indicate the moon’s operating cycle. The hands move forward every half day, which is much more accurate than the normal moon phase display.
Behind this innovation is Oris’s unique and unique 761 movement, the basic movement is SW220. After repeated thinking and adjustment, the engineers of Oris added the function of the analogue calendar to the existing movement. The final product also fully reflects and demonstrates Oris’ efforts and contributions in functional innovation on the basis of maintaining a good price-performance ratio of the watch.
Oris Tycho Brahe limited watch produced in a limited edition of 500 pieces, presented in a luxurious wooden watch box, will be available in May 2015.

Founded in 1904, Oris was founded by watchmakers Paul Cattin and Georges Christian in the small town of Holstein in northwestern Switzerland. In 1985, long before mechanical watches took the world by storm, Oris only focused on the development and manufacture of high-precision mechanical watches, and today it still maintains the same brand strategy. Oris has carefully crafted watches by hand, dedicated to watch fans who are keen on mechanical movements and pursuing extreme and eternal value, and meet the high expectations of watch fans around the world with four series of watches: racing, diving, flying and culture.
