Posted by admin

Oris uses the slogan ‘Real watches for real people’. Whether it comes to watches for everyday use, or for the diver who does his work in extreme conditions, each watch is created with this in mind. A no-nonsense brand with 110 years of experience.

In 1904, two watchmakers Paul Cattin and Georges Christian decided to work together. They called their company Oris, after a nearby stream with the same name. Their vision: by means of industrial production, creating affordable high-quality watches. They are extremely successful at this and in 1910, Oris is with three hundred employees the largest employer in the region and in 1925 they produce their products at nine other facilities.

Led by among others David LeCoultre (Jaeger-LeCoultre) Oris gets recognition for their high quality products and becomes an established name. With a production of 1.2 million watches and clocks a year, Oris in the 1970′s belongs to the top ten watch producers worldwide.

The extensive collection consists of four basic-lines; Culture, Diving, Aviation and Motorsport. Within these lines you’ll find the familiar classics such as the Moon Pointer, Pointer Calendar or the Big Crown, but also new models that distinguishable by their distinctive appearance or exceptional combinations of functionality.
