Paul Cattin and Georges Christian founded the brand after the duo purchased the factory “Lohner & Co. Watch”.
The company had its factories in many nearby towns by the 1920s, including Holderbank, Courgenay, Como, and Holstein.
The brand’s lineup includes four primary categories, catering to different professions.
Interestingly, some Oris professional tool watches are coveted among collectors of every lifestyle due to their exclusive functions and style.
However, the four different categories are Motorsport, Culture, Aviation, and Diving.
And some of the most popular watches for every category are namely the Chronoris motorsport watch, the Big Crown ProPilot Aviation watch, the classic Artelier watch, the Aquis Diver’s watch.
Oris introduced its first automatic 17-jewel movement in 1952.
Oris made many more innovations of movement that included its first chronometer – Calibre 652.
The Worldtimer function is indeed an incredible complication. It can regulate the local time backwards or forward in hour increments.
The Oris Worldtimer was one of the leading aviation watches that enabled the user in tracking time while travelling to different places.
Moreover, the brand introduced the new Artelier Worldtimer in 2004 for celebrating its 100th anniversary.
Oris is considered as one of the independent Swiss watchmakers. The brand produces both premium quality and affordable luxury watches.
Interestingly, the watchmaker introduced today’s legendary “Red Rotor” for celebrating its success in 2002.
The Red Rotor is indeed the defining feature of Oris that can be seen on many of its watches via the transparent case backs.
Oris redefined its logo in 2018 for including its founding year 1904.
This campaign represents Oris’ devotion to creating exclusive and superior quality Swiss-made timepieces.
