Philosophy

After manufacturing watches for over 100 years, traditions and domesticity have become the most important values for the company. The company has wanted to manufacture purely mechanical watches. Those are designed by a strict philosophy which has been obeyed for many generations. The company has patented The Oris High-Mech symbol - a red rotor which can be seen on mechanical Oris movements. If you see this red symbol, you can be sure that the watch is genuine. The watches have been wanted to be designed with a clearly distinctive style merged with innovative features. It is important for the company to be Swiss. Swiss made brand is a guarantee of quality and it is determined by its own laws. All Oris watches are Swiss made and have gone through the highest quality controls.

The birth and growth of Oris

The company was founded in Hölstein, Switzerland in 1904 by Georges Christian and Paul Cattin. The growth speed of the company was fast and already in 1911 it was the biggest employer in Hölstein with over 300 employees. In 1911-1925 the company grew fast and continued opening new factories. In 1925 the first Oris watch saw daylight. Two years later news of grief encountered the company, as the company's founder George Christian died. A year later Christian’s brother-in-law Oscar Herzog was nominated as General Manager where he acted successfully for the following 43 years. In 1938-1940 the company presented the first alarm clock and a watch for pilots. In 1945 the company's hard work got rewarded and Oris watches were awarded for their accuracy. The company continued growing decade after decade and they presented an 8-day watch, a top class diving watch, the first Oris automatic watch and the first Oris chronograph. In the 1960’s the company employed over 800 employees and produced over 1.2 million watches a year. The company manufactured their own tools and machines and at the same educated over 40 engineers and watchsmiths every year to guarantee qualified workers.
