Superb, distinguished and very popular, Oris watches reflect the tradition of Swiss watchmaking and are crafted using the brand’s rich history and savoir-faire, which has been recognized since the beginning of the 20th century.
Resistance and strength
Oris’ luxurious watches are manufactured using parts that are designed to last. Reliability is undoubtedly one of the company’s main philosophies, which it upholds in its workshops located in Basel Switzerland. Oris’ different watches are authentic, each with a personality of its own. It should be noted that Oris is proud to produce completely analog watches - no quartz models are available.
Oris watches are exceptionally popular and are often worn by actors and actresses, for example, Keanu Reeves, Gwyneth Paltrow, Julianne Moore and Ben Chaplin.
4 categories of watches: Culture, aviation, diving and automotive
Four collections of watches are currently produced by Oris in its Hölstein-based workshops, all of which are available at Basic Mercat watch retailer in Andorra la Vella. These collections include, culture, aviation, diving and motor sport.
The diving world decided upon its chosen watch manufacturer a long time ago! The world of luxury watchmaking has set off on international waters with Oris. Its watches are widely recognized for their practicality and incredible reliability. The Aquis, Diver and ProDiver collections are particularly popular.
The creators and managers at Oris have never concealed their love of art. From this passion exclusive pieces have bloomed, reflecting one of Oris’ philosophies: designing precise, reliable and elegant timepieces for "authentic individuals." The Artelier, Artix, Rectangular and Classic models have been extremely successful.
The first Aviation watch was created in the 1930s. Since then, Oris has never ceased to amaze and intrigue its clientele in a very competitive, demanding field. Thanks to its ever-evolving watchmaking technologies, its timepieces have always been highly appreciated by pilots. Examples include the Big Crown ProPilot, BC3, Big Crown and Air Racing Edition models.
Motor Sport collection
Since 2003, Oris has been the official and privileged watchmaking partner of the Williams Formula 1 team. The partnership with this British team has led to the creation of a unique carbon fibre timepiece! Oris patented the manufacturing process that creates this ultra-light piece. The most famous watches in this collection are the Williams, Artix GT and Chronoris models.
A very rich history
In 1904, Paul Cattin and Georges Christian founded Oris by buying the watch factory Lohner & Co. The brand was named after a stream flowing through the small town of Hölstein.
The brand expanded quite rapidly and Oris became the main employer in the region in 1911. At this point the company employed 300 individuals. In 1929, six Oris factories were located in Switzerland, Hölstein, Holderbank, Como, Courgenay, Herbetswil and Ziefen.
Oscar Herzog was the company’s General Manager for much of the 20th century. He continued developing Oris with great success and overcame all of the challenges of the modern watchmaking field.
In 1984, Oris reintroduced the Pointer Calendar, which over time became Oris’s signature complication. Other innovative models followed, such as those equipped with the 581 caliber with a moon phase complication (1991) and a new version of the BC-3 Big Crown from the aviation collection.
