The dial is everything on this watch for me, if you have tried on the 41mm Aquis you'll already know it is an insanely comfortable watch and fits most wrist sizes due to the case shape and lug design, but this dial blew me away the moment I saw it! The vibrant green mother of pearl is something to catch you when looking at the time, I found myself more interested in the dial every time I wanted to tell the time, so be prepared to be distracted owning this 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. 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.
