The 7 Finest Oris Pieces To Watch Out For!

Two men, Paul Cattin and Georges Christian founded Oris in 1904. They bought the Lohner & Co watch factory, which had recently closed, and named the company after a brook in the Swiss town of Hölstein. In less than a decade, the company has expanded to include another factory and an assembly plant, becoming the largest employer in Hölstein. By 1929, they had six factories in total.

Oris is one of the few Swiss watchmakers that only produces mechanical watches. The watches are distinguished by a distinctive red rotor design, which represents the company’s mechanical approach to the watchmaking process. Because they only use the best materials, the company promises that their watches will last a long time. Since it is Swiss-made, the customer can be confident that the company employs strict quality control and adheres to the highest manufacturing standards. Here’s the list of the finest Oris watches.
