Personal Note

Oris has always been a brand I admire dearly, especially as my first true Swiss watch was an Oris too. This early Big Crown Complication Moonphase in 38mm offers undeniable value for money, the complication provided and the overall design, all by a Swiss brand with true history and heritage, it's incredible! It also looks just as great on a nice leather strap as it does the bracelet.


The Brand

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. By 1929, they had a total of six factories. At the end of the 1960s, Oris became one of the largest watch companies in the world, producing approximately 1.2 million timepieces a year. Dr Rolf Portmann and Ulrich W. Herzog headed a management buyout from Swatch Group in 1982. Unhappy with the way the Group was running things. Oris SA was born as an independent Swiss watch brand. 2002 saw their distinctive Red Rotor become an Oris registered Trademark.
