Celebrate Dexter's 94th Birthday (February 27th, 2017) with the New Oris Dexter Gordon Limited Edition!
The Oris Dexter Gordon Limited Edition is the seventeenth jazz watch made by world-renowned watch company, Oris. In keeping with the company’s previous jazz watches, it is a classic, deeply stylish piece. Its look is calm and harmonious, a reflection on Dexter’s famously warm, sociable personality.
The watch has a 40mm stainless steel case, a sunray-finished gray dial and a dark brown leather strap. The warm feel reflects Dexter’s personality.
The watch’s case back is engraved with the words ‘Long Tall Dex’, Dexter’s nickname.
Oris has included a number of subtle touches that reference the great man. The index at 12 o’clock is shaped like a saxophone reed, while ‘DEXTER GORDON’ is spelled out around the dial, one letter per index. The central seconds hand is brass-coloured like a saxophone and has an extended counterbalance, a reference to Dexter’s nickname ‘Long Tall Dex’, which is also engraved on the watch’s case back.
The index at 12 o’clock is shaped like a saxophone reed while the name DEXTER GORDON is spelled around the watch's dial.
The Oris Dexter Gordon Limited Edition is limited to 1,000 pieces and will be available from January, priced USD $1,900. ‘Jazz to me is a living music,’ Dexter once said. ‘It’s a music that since its beginning has expressed the feelings, the dreams, the hopes of the people.’
The Oris Dexter Gordon Limited Edition comes in a luxurious wooden box with a special medal engraved with ‘Long Tall Dex’
