Oris Artix Date watch

This is a very simple and classic 3-hand watch from Oris. It is the Oris Artix Date watch, reference 01-733-7642-4051-07-5-21-81FC. That was a mouthful. The watch features the following functions; hours, minutes, seconds and date complication at the 6 o'clock position.

It is a very nice watch with a silver dial featuring the baton type hour markers. The Arabic hour markers are on the rehaut. The hands are luminous, and the sweep second hand features an 'O' on the balance side for Oris. All these contribute to a 3D look.

The watch features a four-piece case, which is water resistant to 10 ATM. It measures 42 mm in diameter with a unique 21 mm lug width. It is also fitted with a dual dome sapphire crystal on the front, and the display back is fitted with a mineral crystal.

This watch is powered by the Oris caliber 733. What is interesting is the movement fitted to the watch. This movement is based on the Selita SW200 movement (which in turn is based on the ETA 2824 movement). This 11.5 ligne movement beats at 28,800 A/h and has the quickset date and hacking functionality.

The watch is available with either a black leather strap with folding buckle or a stainless steel bracelet.

  1. I just ordered this watch from a local authorized dealer. They had the leather strap in stock but I wanted the steel bracelet. Beautiful and simple just what I want and nothing more. Thanks for the information about the movement.

  2. Hi Joe,

    Welcome to the forum. Congrats on the watch. Wear it with good health.

    Best regards,
