Hank Aaron’s legacy as a baseball player and an exceptional human being is etched in history. Born in Mobile, Alabama, in 1934, he discovered his love for baseball at a young age, dreaming of making it big. Joining the Milwaukee Braves in the 1950s, Hank showcased raw talent that left fans in awe. Hank never wavered despite adversity, discrimination, and immense pressure throughout his career. 1974 he made history, surpassing Babe Ruth’s long-standing home run record with an incredible 715 home runs, becoming the all-time home run king. Hank Aaron’s impact transcended baseball.

The Oris Hank Aaron Limited Edition stainless steel 40mm case has a familiar shape with a fluted bezel and large screw-in crown, with a solid steel caseback engraved with an image of Hank Aaron in his famous cross-handed batting stance. The white dial, topped with a domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating inside, features blue outlined red numerals and red-outlined blue minutes ring with triangular hour indices filled with Super-LumiNova around, except for the double square-shaped index at 12 o’clock. The hour and minutes hands are filled with Super-LumiNova, too. For the date indication, the central hand with a red-tipped pointer will highlight the current date; the 31 days of the month are printed outside the minutes’ ring. It is powered by the Oris calibre 754, based on the automatic Sellita SW-200.

  1. Oris is good with special editions.
    This one is not my favorite, but it’s not half bad either.

  2. As an owner of the Roberto Clemente Edition, I would have preferred that Oris did not go with a silver dial once again here for the Henry Aaron Edition. If they had gone with a blue or a red dial for this one, I would have found myself tempted to pick one up in addition to my Clemente Edition, however the differences between this model and the Clemente are too subtle for me to really want to own both, even though Henry Aaron is one of my baseball heroes. I also understand that there are only 3000 Clemente Editions out there and only 2297 of these, so it is not especially likely that many people would end up owning both, however I find myself wishing that Oris did a bit more to separate these two models than simply changing the accent and strap colours from Pittsburgh Pirates colors to Braves colors. As a standalone watch, this Aaron Edition is lovely, however it seems a bit less original when you compare it against the Clemente Edition which preceded it.

  3. It is nice, a lot of their special editions mean absolutely nothing to me, but it is nice that they honour people in this way.
