25 Key Moments in the History of Oris Watches

Postby koimaster » July 22nd 2017, 1:12pm

The Swiss watch brand Oris is well-known for the use of a red winding rotor, which became a trademark of the brand in 2002. It’s a symbol, the brand says, of the passion with which it manufactures mechanical wristwatches. At the same time, it’s a good way to catch the attention of the beholder and a good conversation starter. What else can you tell your watch friends? Discover these 25 milestone moments in the history of Oris watches, from its founding in 1904 to the present day, and you’ll have plenty to discuss.

1904 Oris is founded in Hölstein, Switzerland, by Paul Cattin and Georges Christian, both from Le Locle. They name the company after a nearby brook.

Why does the reissue of the Diver 65 get mention but not the original?
Shouldn't it be the other way around? If the reissue is important then the original must have been da bomb.
