Right before the Christmas madness will break loose, Oris introduces to you their new Artelier Date Diamonds models in 33mm. A mid-sized case watch for women whereas the watch was previously only available in a small 28mm. This Artelier Date with 12 brilliant-cut diamonds on the dial might be a great gift (for your wife, girlfriend, or yourself of course!) for Christmas.

Oris Artelier Date Diamonds

Starting at 1800 Swiss Francs for the version on a leather strap and 2000 Swiss Francs for the one with the stainless steel bracelet, this 33mm stainless steel watch competes with a number of other ladies watches out there. What’s especially nice, is that Oris made sure to fit a see-through case back, so those who appreciate a mechanical heart can actually have a look at it once in a while.

Two Versions

Oris actually introduces two different versions of this Artelier Date Diamonds. One with an anthracite guilloché dial and one with a silver guilloché dial. What remains the same are the 12 diamonds on the dial. Also important is the variety of available straps (and bracelet) for this Artelier Date Diamonds. The silver dial version comes with a black leather strap (or stainless steel bracelet) and the anthracite dial version with either a bordeaux or black leather strap (or stainless steel bracelet). Those who prefer a different color can of course have one fitted from a third party strap maker.

Automatic Movement

The time that ladies didn’t care about the movement is behind us. Brands like Oris – and some others – have realized this for a while now, and are able to offer a nice variety of mechanical watches for ladies. In this Oris Artelier Date Diamonds, you will find their caliber 561 ticking away the seconds. This Oris caliber 561 is based on the ETA 2671. It is a small 17.2mm diameter movement that was especially designed in 1971 for ladies’ watches and used by a couple of brands, including Oris obviously. This movement has a power reserve of 38 hours and has a (quickset) date complication. Oris positioned the date in this Artelier Date Diamonds at 6 o’clock.
