Baselworld 2014: Oris Artelier Jumping Hour Watch

By Jovan Krstevski





The newest addition to Oris’ Artelier collection, the new Artelier Jumping Hour showcases an unusual way of telling the time. This isn’t the first time we see a watch brand abandoning the traditional central hour hand. But, this is the first in the Oris family to reveal its digital hour through a jumping disk that changes every sixty minutes.


The dial, comes in a silver guilloche with polished Nickel indices and polished Nickel hand. With hour aperture at 12 o’clock, decentralized minute hand and small second at 6 o’clock. The stainless steel case is constructed from a 40.50mm resilient multi-piece and crown, this elegant watch also features a double-domed sapphire crystal both sides and with anti-reflective coating inside.


Inside the elegant Jumping Hour from Oris, there is an automatic mechanical movement 917, based on Selitta SW300. The watch is also water-resistant to 50 metres (5 bar).


The Artelier Jumping Hour is available on a dark brown calf skin leather strap with croco pattern and a stainless steel folding clasp, with a retail price of 4,100 CHF. For more info, please visit
