Oris was founded in 1904 by two men, Paul Cattin and Georges Christian. The name comes from a brook in the Swiss town of Hölstein, in a short period they became the largest employer in Hölstein. By 1929, they had a total of six factories. At the end of the 1960s, Oris became one of the world’s largest watch companies, producing approximately 1.2 million timepieces a year.

Points of Mention
This watch is sold with its original Oris box and Oris paperwork. The watch comes paired on its original Oris bracelet with a signed clasp and links included, an original Oris rubber strap is also provided for this watch. The watch is from January 2005 and is in worn condition, but overall very good as you can see from the photos, the bezel has faded and has some scratches. The watch comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.
This is easily what I would call a "Steal" of a deal! An incredible Oris which is truly on par with the Aquis line, but this features some age that is part of the character that most modern watches will no longer develop. Sure, some people prefer a watch to look pretty much brand new forever, but if you are like me the bezel on this watch just works so well with that slight age and fading!
