Oris Watches – A Tradition of Expertise
The watches are also known for the connection to the aviation industry. Oris watches has produced a long and distinguished line of pilots’ watches since the 1940s when we launched the first Pointer Day watches. The tradition has been continued to produce first class aviation watches and has been active in supporting new aviation exploits whilst taking inspiration from the spirit of both modern and classic aviation. Oris watches also have a strong commitment to motorsport through its connection with the AT&T Williams Formula one team.
Another sport closely associated with the manufacturer have been professional divers. This connection has led to the production of some of Oris' most intelligently crafted yet universally appealing watches.
But the real beauty and excitement of owning these one of these finely engineered examples of the horologists craft begins when you turn your timepiece over.

The window in the case back makes the complex inner workings of the watch visible, displaying the mechanical movement at the centre of the timepiece.
For decades craftsmen have been refining their expertise and launching new and successful movements. The current models, which incorporate the company’s pioneering innovations, are equipped with first class mechanical automatic movements – high quality and state-of-the-art.
