It is the best time for watch nerds around the world, it is a time for Watches and Wonders.
And this year Oris has released one of their coolest watches ever, the Oris Kermit Edition.
This year’s main attraction
For us, this is definitely the main attraction of the Watches and Wonders 2023. This is because the watch has it all.
It is a cool model, great material, respected movement, as well as a funny collaboration with a tease to the old dragons at the watch fair.
Oris and Kermit the Frog from Disney’s The Muppets have collaborated to create a new watch, the ProPilot X Kermit Edition. The watch features a green dial and a unique twist – on the first of every month, the date window at 6 o’clock will be filled with a Kermit the Frog emoji. The collaboration aims to promote “Kermit Day,” a day to not take life too seriously and have some fun.
Oris takes watchmaking seriously, but with this collaboration, they wanted to bring a bit of humor and joy to their craft. The goal of every Oris watch is to bring joy and make people smile. Kermit the Frog has been entertaining people for generations, so it was only natural for Oris to team up with him. The result is a watch that is “seriously unserious.”
To promote the collaboration, Oris’s creative director, Ken Laurent, went to Hollywood to make a short film with Kermit the Frog. Kermit even composed and sang a catchy tune called “Gotta Make Time For Me,” which is about finding even just a brief moment in the day for yourself.
Ken Laurent, in an interview, spoke about his job as Oris’s creative director and how he finds inspiration from nature. He also spoke about why Oris is such a good fit for him, saying that sometimes with companies, there’s an aura you can’t get past, but Oris just works for him.
In the end, Oris and Kermit have created a watch that is both functional and fun. It’s a reminder to take life a little less seriously and enjoy the little things. And while some might compare it to Rolex’s Kermit model, Oris’s version has a personality all its own. So, take a minute, smile, and enjoy the ProPilot X Kermit Edition.
A color that really pops!
The Oris Kermit is made in lime green like the “skin” of the Kermit caracter, which makes it pop hard just like they have done with watches like the Cotton Candies before.
Colors that are unique is also fun, blue, dark green is nothing new these days, but lime green is which is also more fun.
The Kermit Oris
The Kermit character is a historical, classic, and well-known Disney character from the series “The Muppets“. This is the main character and is well known for his behavior and has been very popular over generations and times.
Pictures of the watch will start flowing coming days
Since the watch just released it will be unclear when we can see it in real life but hopefully in not to a long time. But until then we have received some press package pictures that we thought to collect here for you.
Conclusion of the Oris Kermit
The Oris Kermit is not just any kind of collaboration, and bringing in cartoons as ambassadors just makes the industry much more fun. It is not so serious and after all, it is just watches why be so serious? This is one of many reasons why we think this is going to be the best release of 2023 in Watches and Wonders.
