The Watch

Oris was founded by Paul Cattin and George Christian in the Swiss town of Hölstein.  They bought a factory and signed a contract with the mayor in 1904. Initially making pocket watches in 1925 they started to add bracelets to their pocket watches which soon transitioned into the wristwatch. In 1938 they introduced the Big Crown that was used by pilots who wore thick leather gloves and needed a big crown for making adjustments.

Our Oris Pointer Dae has a 34mm highly polished stainless steel case. A gentle curve of the lugs making it a comfortable fit. On the right side an easy-to-grip crown. A full coin edge bezel supports a domed crystal. The black textured dial has an outer date track with a center indicator hand with a half-moon in red marking the date. Thick lumed Arabic numerals indicate the hours. Elegant steel syringe hands with lume infill are complemented with a sweeping second hand. On the reverse an exhibition case back showcasing an Automatic ETA 2688, 17 Jewels, 21,600 beats per hour. The rotor is modified by Oris with its gold colour and machine-turned finishing. The watch comes fitted on an 18mm black leather strap with an Oris signed buckle.

Points of Mention


This watch is sold as "Watch Only" and therefore comes with no original Oris box or paperwork. The watch comes paired with a well-suited black leather strap with an Oris signed buckle. The watch is from Circa. 1990s and is sold in worn condition, but overall very fair as you can see. The watch comes with our 12-Months Non-Waterproof Warranty.

Personal Note


It is no secret I am a big fan of Oris and always have been, one of the last remaining truly independent brands in Switzerland that aren't doing bespoke crazy expensive pieces! This pointer date is a fantastic watch for not an awful lot of money, beautifully finished, and wears so well on the wrist.
