Another Baselworld 2015 release, this watch is part of Oris' Artix collection.
The Tycho Brahe Limited Edition is clearly an astronomy-inspired watch. The dark blue elements and high-contrast, light markers portray the night sky. The watch also has a built-in moonphase indicator (which is present on other watches using the same movement). In addition, the caseback is engraved with the Tychonic system (picture below). The 42mm watch appears to be a variation ofthe Artix Pointer Moon released last year. Powering the watch is Oris’s Calibre 761, based on Sellita SW220. The moonphase complication is added, so it is unique to Oris. The Oris Tycho Brahe Limited Edition is a LE of 500 pieces and watches should start hitting stores May 2015. The watch will be priced CHF 2,200.00 (~$2,220 USD).
