With the new Artix GT Chronograph, Oris introduces a new type of countdown indicator displayed in a vertical aperture appearing on the subdial at 9 o’clock. This indicator is made up of fives squares which are filled in five seconds – one square per second – five seconds before the quarter, half, three-quarter and full minute.
