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. 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. In 1982 Dr Rolf Portmann and Ulrich W. Herzog led a management buyout from Swatch Group. 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.

Here we have a 2020 Oris Big Crown Robert Clemente Limited Edition of 3000 pieces which is the same number of his career hits. This stunning watch has been designed in collaboration with the Roberto Clemente Foundation which is managed by Clemente's son, Luis Roberto Clemente Zabala.

Personal Note

Immediately I was drawn to this watch for its super clean and crisp design but also that strap, beautifully made and very clearly inspired by a baseball, it works so well on this watch but I also believe would look great on a huge array of other watches! But the watch is what you're here for and it certainly delivers a home run (Yes, I don't watch baseball) being perfectly designed and beautifully proportioned on and off the wrist, all done for another great cause that Oris believes in.
