When it comes to precision craftsmanship and time-honored horological excellence, nothing compares to the intricate movements of automatic and mechanical wristwatches. These self-wound and hand-wound timepieces are in a league of their own and are revered and respected by both watch collectors and aficionados alike.
Oris watches, one of the largest watchmakers in Switzerland was founded in 1904 and has been expressly producing automatic and mechanical timepieces for men and women for over a century.
What’s more, the brand’s timepieces are exclusively produced at their Hölstein facilities in Switzerland. Unlike other watchmakers whose movements may be assembled in one facility, while the bracelet, crystal and case may be assembled in another, Oris holds the distinction of producing all of their timepieces at their company owned factory.
The brand also remains one of the few privately owned and operated Swiss watchmakers in the world today and is renowned for its aviation, divers and racing watches. In fact, Oris has been the exclusive watch supplier to the BMW Formula One racing team since 2003.
