The Skindiver WT and the Oris Roberto Clemente Limited Edition

Equipped with a sapphire crystal and automatic movement, designed for watch enthusiasts who appreciate elegance and performance.

This Skindiver WT Automatic wristwatch features a black dial with “old radium” Super-LumiNova, the iconic hour arrow hand, a double dome sapphire glass and a 316L steel case – water resistant to 100m.

The watch is based on the Big Crown Pointer Date and pays tribute to Clemente’s legacy through a number of visual cues, like the black and gold numerals inspired by Clemente’s uniform. Additionally, there’s a clever – and subtle – gold “21” date marker, while the rest are black. Twenty-one was Clemente’s number, which the Pittsburgh Pirates have since retired.

Oris always seems to find a way to make the familiar surprising.
