Oris Unveils The Bronze Father Time Limited Edition Watch

A tribute to the iconic figure watching over Lord's Cricket Ground.


For the first time, the iconic thwack of a cricket bat meeting the ball has found harmony with the precise tick of a watch. Cricket, steeped in tradition and beloved by billions, has ventured into the world of horology, and the result is a collaboration for the ages: the Oris Father Time Limited Edition, a bronze commemoration to the sport’s timeless guardian, a mythical figure who’s kept watch over the bastion of cricketing tradition, the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground since 1926.

Measuring 40mm in diameter, it’s crafted from solid, naturally aging bronze. A knurled bezel and oversized crown echo the watch’s aviation heritage, harking back to the original pilot’s design introduced in 1938, while the domed sapphire crystal glistens like a dew-kissed pitch under the London sun.

Pure white forms the canvas for this timepiece, in contrast with the standard bronze collection’s darker hues. Printed Arabic numerals and Super-LumiNova hands sweep across the dial while the pointer date function is indicated by a central hand with a distinctive red, crescent-shaped tip. The rehaut houses the scale for the pointer date.

Flipping the watch over, our gaze meets an engraved image of Father Time weathervane on the stainless steel caseback, the mythical figure holding a scythe, a wicket, and a ball, eternally keeping watch over the hallowed turf. Each of the 1,926 limited-edition pieces carries this unique mark.

Inside, the Oris 754 Calibre, derived from the Sellita SW200-1, ensures Swiss precision with a 38-hour power reserve.

Priced at $3,100, Father Time swaps between two outfits: a seven-link bronze bracelet and a light brown sustainably sourced deer leather strap, both secured with bronze buckles for a cohesive look.
