Oris - The Affordable Luxury Watch
Oris is one of the most desirable watch brands today, so if you have not added one to your collection, do yourself a favor and take a look at the collections! You will see why Oris watches for sale are one of our most unique and valued brands.
For starters, the privately-owned company that makes Oris watches occupies a unique position among other watch manufacturers. The company is situated in the German-speaking part of Switzerland, while the others are based in the French-speaking part of the country. But that’s not what makes them exceptional within their fan base!
The company is known for being one of the only Swiss watch companies that have been able to maintain its independence due to making its own movements in-house! This is extremely notable because mechanical Swiss movements are much more difficult to source than they used to be. Since Oris manufactures in-house movements and has maintained private ownership they have been able to ensure sustainable production, maintain their own high standards, and continue to remain in the cost-approachable category.
The Oris watch product line consists of four different collections: Diving, Aviation, Motorsport, and Culture. Some of the more popular models, such as the ProDiver Pointer Moon, the Big Crown ProPilot, and all of the Motorsport watches are well-designed to suit their specific purposes. Oris watches offer styles and models for a variety of tastes and purposes.
Oris Watches - An Interesting History
The Oris company was founded in Hölstein, Switzerland in 1904 by Paul Cattin and Georges Christian who both originally came from the Le Locle area. For those of you who are not familiar with the area, Le Locle is well known as the center of Swiss watchmaking all over Europe. Some even point to it as the birthplace of the watchmaking industry. Within a couple of decades, Cattin and Christian were able to open five additional factories.
