Born out of a fun collaboration between Disney’s The Muppets’ Kermit the Frog, Oris has introduced a brand-new ProPilot x Calibre 400.
“Mechanical watchmaking is a serious business, and we’re really quite serious about it. But with the ProPilot X Kermit Edition, part of the Oris x Disney’s The Muppets collaboration, we’re inviting the world to take a minute,” said the Swiss luxury watchmaker.
Inspired by what the company calls the Joy of Mechanics, the Oris X Kermit Edition adds fun to the standard ProPilot X Calibre 400 it is based on. It features the original multi-piece, satin-finished and sand-blasted titanium-crafted case measuring 39 mm in diameter and Oris’ renowned Calibre 400 movement, a highly anti-magnetic self-winding unit offering a whopping 120-hour power reserve. The watch is presented on a titanium folding bracelet featuring Oris’ patented ‘LIFT’ system.
However, this model adds a twist to the original model’s design. The dial is finished in what can otherwise be described as “Kermit” green, while the date window has a neat feature — a Kermit the Frog emoji signifying “Kermit Day” appears here on the first day of every month.
[It] is all about not taking life too seriously. Having some fun. We’re seriously unserious about it,” said the Hölstein-based brand. “If an Oris watch can make someone’s day better, we’ve done our job.”
