Oris was founded in 1904 by two men, Paul Cattin and Georges Christian. The name comes from a brook at 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.
The Aquis first introduced in 2011. A tactile ceramic bezel and a large crown with a highly legible dial won praise amongst the industry. The 43mm stainless steel case has brushed and polished surfaces, with angled lugs, for a comfortable fit on the wrist. A screw-down crown protected by crown guards. A black ceramic dive bezel with deeply etched markings. Sapphire crystal with AR coating protects the sunburst dial which glints in the light with broad baton silver-toned indexes filled with orange luminescence. The handset used has an obelisk-shaped silver-toned hour and minute hands filled with orange luminescence, along with a center sweeping second's lollipop hand. A date window at 6 o’clock has a contemporary design of white numerals against a black background. Inside we have the Oris 733, an automatic movement, based on the Sellita SW200-1. The balance has a frequency of 28,800 beats per hour, and the movement contains 26 jewels. The screw-down exhibition case back shows off the characteristic red balance weight which Oris has become well known for. Fitted with an integrated stainless steel bracelet with security folding clasp and divers extension.

Oris as a brand has been producing fantastic watches for a very long time, in recent time they have continued with the production of great watches but also kept them at a very fair price for what they offer, this watch could easily compare with many watches that are close to double the price, that is a bold achievement for a brand like Oris.
