Oris Watches - Real Watches For Real People
Designed for extreme outdoor sports, these powerful watches have distinguished Swiss watchmaking skills to their credit. With over 100 years of legacy in fine watchmaking, Oris has managed to build a niche of its own. Established in 1904, the first workshop was set up in the Swiss region of Holstein. Their watches are purely mechanical, consisting of a red rotor which is the symbol of Oris mechanicals. This red rotor is a registered trademark and symbolises the natural power that fuels the watches.
Fiercely independent, Oris was briefly acquired by the ASUAG group, later known as the Swatch Group. During the ‘Quartz Crisis’ when mechanical watches were being overtaken by more affordable quartz movements, Oris went through a rough patch. After a management buyout, Oris decided to produce only mechanical watches and has been an independent brand since. Post the buyout, Oris has produced in-house movements like the Calibre 110, a movement with a pure, industrial look. Whereas, the Calibre 400 is a technical milestone with a five-day power reserve and elevated levels of anti-magnetism.
Apart from their watchmaking prowess and the addition of the PET plastic recycling process in a few of their products, Oris is also known for their ‘Change for the better days’ movement. A movement run by Oris sustainability ambassadors, it helps in creating a better world for the future by cleaning the beaches, roads, and parks.
Oris is closely associated with the Jazz world; their limited edition timepieces have paid a tribute to the trumpet maestro Miles Davis. Sticking to their philosophy of ‘keeping time’, Oris also paid a tribute to the Jazz drummer, Art Blakey with their special edition timepieces.
Each timepiece is a combination of useful complications and functional designs which are made available to the target audience at affordable prices. Oris watches are extremely popular and have adorned the wrists of many celebrities from formula one, diving, jazz and aviation. They have created the finest of mechanical watches that cater to all outdoor enthusiasts. The watches are subdivided into categories like motorsport, aviation, culture and diving. The designing of watches is done, keeping in mind the mission to achieve perfection and excellence. With a passion to be innovative, both in design and technology, they have managed to attain greater heights. Oris offers 7 distinct collections known as, Aquis, Divers, Big Crown, Propilot, PropilotX, Rectangular, and Artelier.

During the 1910s, Oris created the first series of Pilot’s watches. The advent of aviation was in the books and Oris wanted to create something for the men with wings.
The Big Crown collection was introduced in 1938 and is Oris’s signature model. Oris still absorbs a lot of inspiration from this design.
