Founded in 1904 in the Swiss town of Hölstein, Oris was the brainchild of Paul Cattin and Georges Christian who named their company after a nearby brook. Between 1906 and 1925 another 5 more factories would be opened in Switzerland, taking on a total of 300 employees. The mix of designers, watch technicians and skilled artisans would be responsible for developing and supplying premium mechanical watches fitted with reliable movements and highly technical features. Over the next few years, Oris would begin supplying wristwatches to the military during the Second World War such as their iconic Big Crown which was designed especially to be controlled while wearing thick pilot gloves.
During the sixties, Oris began manufacturing Swiss lever escapements and focused its attention on creating diver watches. The first model boasted luminescent markers, a unidirectional rotating bezel, a bold design and a water resistant case. The Oris Calibre 652, with a superior lever escapement, was chronometer certified and accurate to the highest Swiss standards. By 1969, Oris had become one of the world’s top 10 largest watch companies and employed over 800 people over various factories in Hölstein and beyond.
Since then, Oris has brought to life an incredible range of multi-purpose watches designed for diving, aviation, motor racing and all-round elegance. Some of their most notable collections include the Aquis, Sixty-Dive Divers, Artelier, Big Crown and Pro Diver. As masters of mechanical watches, Oris are also one of only a handful of Swiss watch brands that only use mechanical movements within their watches, believing that automatic and hand winding calibres are where the beauty of watchmaking is at. To supplement this, they manufacture their own range of in-house movements including the incredible Calibre 400 which delivers a 5 day power reserve and a 10 year warranty.
