紀念帶來歡笑的117年時光！Oris以摩登灰Hölstein 2021限量款慶生/Commemorate the 117 years of Joyful！Oris celebrates birthda
6月1日是瑞士獨立機械錶品牌Oris的生日，2021年也是他們度過117年歲月的里程碑，為了紀念品牌創立這重要的日子，百年來帶給人們笑容的Oris，特別推出了限量版灰面的Big Crown Hölstein 2021設計腕錶。
機械錶確實不是日常「必需」品，既不是維持生活與健康的首要選擇，為何又有如此多的人趨之若鶩？如同《No Man Is An Island》一書作者Thomas Merton寫道：「藝術能使我們找到自我，同時失去自我」一只腕錶提供的不只是時間運行的資訊，他所賦予的更是引領人生活方向，尋找目標的意義，或是我們更俗濫矯情一點的說：玩物喪志，以明其志，沈浸在這種精神性的娛樂中，忙碌之餘抬起手看著喜愛的腕錶，美麗僅只慰勞辛勤的你，片刻的夢想豈不迷人。
「我們認為品牌有義務製造出帶給人們笑容的手錶」Oris如是說，然而他們的小熊，重新佈局的自製機芯巧思，以及近年繽紛的色彩，似乎也如此述說著理念：「機械錶鼓勵我們享受夢想，並沈浸在它美麗與燦爛中。」如同這次的Hölstein 2021一樣，有著二十世紀簡約工業風格，選用Big Crown此指標性設計，背後亦有故事。回顧1938年為飛行員設計的「大錶冠」，在飛行期間可以輕鬆操作，美感更回到戰前的設計，原有的錢幣紋裝飾與上圈錶鏡，改以平滑錶圈與簡潔俐落的線條呈現，灰色調象徵著20世紀前半葉創造的工藝技術，數字刻度更是參考過往歷史錶款來設計。
38mm的小錶徑是種復古回歸，也是今年趨勢之一，搭載的Oris自製的Calibre 403機芯，是去年度自行研發的Calibre 400系列家族成員，高性能結構能提供五日動力儲存、高抗磁及十年保固，最重要的是帶來歡樂的Oris Bear將在錶底蓋重現，限量編號同時鐫刻在上方，既珍貴又有紀念意義。
