Oris

 

Over 100 years Oris has been making watches in Switzerland. Oris watches are purely mechanical and are marked out by their distinctive design as well as the red rotor, the symbol of Oris mechanicals. Oris watches are also popular, as celebrities from Formula One, diving, jazz and aviation queue up to wear and support our unique creations.

 

Oris only produces mechanical watches. Not a single battery powered watch leaves our workshops. The symbol of Oris mechanicals is the red rotor – it is a sign of the natural power that fuels our watches, and a registered trademark.

 

Oris has been manufacturing watches in the village of Holstein in the Jura Mountains since 1904, without interruption. We have always made mechanical watches.

    Being very well known for only mechanical watches, the Oris watch factory was founded by Paul Cattin and George Christian at Holstein, Switzerland. When the factory was first operated it was run by only 24 workers.


    In 1906 Oris Watches opened the first branch and by 1911 the Oris Company employed over 300 people, they built flats and houses for the workers and became the largest employer in the area.


    By 1981 Oris Watches owned over ten buses which were used to transport 800 workers to its main factory locations.


    Carrying it’s growth of Oris watches through the sixties to the present day Oris is now of of the largest watch producers is Switzerland.


    Oris have made several commemorative watches and special editions, one of which was a limited edition for singer song writer Bob Dylan. Later in 2003 Oris Watches signed an agreement with BMW Williams Frmula One Team to be the sole supplier to the team.
