Oris sets the new standard with Calibre 400

ORIS Calibre 400 is an entirely new automatic movement, independently conceived by Oris, and sets the new standard for automatic mechanical movements. It has a five-day power reserve (120 hours), is highly resistant to magnetism, and comes with 10-year recommended service intervals and a 10-year warranty. Every detail has been scrutinized to ensure the highest possible quality at the best possible price for today’s world citizen

Conceived five years ago, Calibre 400 is made by Oris using a network of Switzerland’s finest suppliers who deliver extremely high quality, using state-of-the-art industrial techniques.

“The real challenge is to produce a movement that will perform consistently and reliably for as long as the intervals you’re going to recommend between servicing.” says Beat Fischli, Oris’s Chief Operating Officer, who created Calibre 400 with his team. “We focused on reducing torque in the mainspring – where power is stored – to help conserve power and put less pressure on moving parts. We also introduced a new wheel design into the gear train that delivers far greater efficiency. Calibre 400 retains 85 per cent of the energy transferred from the mainspring, compared to a norm of around 70 per cent”

"We also knew from experience that most of the problems in automatic movements come from the way they”re wound,” he continues… “Typically, the rotating mass, or rotor, sits on a ball bearing and winds in both directions. Instead, we devised a much more reliable system, based on the slide bearing concept that only winds in one direction. It’s much less complex and reduces wear and tear.”  

 “Calibre 400 is the new standard, the Oris standard”, says Rolf Studer, Oris’s Co-CEO.  “It’s an intelligent concept; it has a smart choice of materials that gives it its anti-magnetic properties… and the engineering solutions deliver the reliability that means we can offer a 10-year warranty and 10-year service intervals. There’s nothing else like it”.
