Oris Announces BC3 Advanced

In February this year, Oris celebrated 10 years of its famous BC3 aviation collection by announcing the launch of the Oris BC3 Sportsman, the first watch from the redesigned BC3 collection for 2010. The second watch in the new collection, the BC3 Advanced, has now arrived.

"Advanced" is the aerobatics class for experienced pilots and was influenced by Oris’ partnership with display pilot Don Vito Wyprächtiger. Vito competes to show something outstanding to the judges during his aerobatic performances, and the BC3 Advanced always stands out in a crowd.

The BC3 Advanced benefits from a quality Oris mechanical movement with a day date function and comes with a choice of sporty rubber or classic leather strap. But it is the additional special design features that made it one of the most popular new Oris models during Baselworld 2010 and a sure fire bestseller this year.
