We invite you to join us as we dive deep into the captivating world of Oris watches, showcasing what makes them unique and guiding you towards finding the perfect Oris watch.

An Ode to Oris Watches

Oris Watches

Since its establishment in the serene Swiss town of Hölstein in 1904, Oris has carved out a unique niche in the watch industry. The brand, renowned for its purely mechanical watches, is a testament to the beauty of traditional Swiss watchmaking, enhanced by modern design aesthetics. Each Oris watch – from the robust diver’s timepieces to the elegant dress watches – reflects the brand’s commitment to precision, innovation, and timeless design.

At Bob’s Watches, we provide a wide variety of Oris watches, both new and pre-owned, each accompanying a factory box and a 2-year factory warranty activated upon purchase. When you invest in an Oris watch, you’re not just acquiring a timekeeping device; you’re owning a piece of horological history from Oris, a companion that will serve you reliably for years to come.

The Rich Tapestry of Oris Collections

Oris houses four distinct collections, each echoing a different lifestyle and aesthetic preference, each tied together by Oris’s commitment to quality and design. Let’s journey through these collections:

Oris Aviation: Soaring High

The collection boasts several lines, each with its unique allure. The Big Crown ProPilot series, for instance, offers complications like altimeters and day-date functions, while the BC3 models impress with their sleek, modern aesthetics.

Let’s consider the Big Crown ProPilot Day Date. Its generous 45mm case ensures easy legibility, while the signature oversized crown allows for easy adjustments. The day and date complications are intuitively placed at 3 o’clock, making this a highly functional piece. The sleek gray textile strap completes the look, making this timepiece a blend of rugged sophistication.

Oris Motor Sport: Speed and Precision

The Oris Motor Sport collection echoes the thrill, dynamism, and precision of motor racing. Housing lines such as the Oris Artix watch collection and Calobra, this collection is for those who feel their pulse quicken at the roar of an engine.

Consider the Oris Artix GT Chronograph. This timepiece showcases a black dial with Superluminova BG W9 luminous hands and index hour markers. The two-counter chronograph layout, date window, and innovative small seconds display resembling a rotating disk, all add to the appeal of this watch. Its stainless-steel case, paired with a black rubber strap, brings a sporty vibe that motor sport enthusiasts are sure to appreciate.

Oris Culture: Classic Elegance

The Oris Culture collection houses timepieces that exude timeless elegance. This collection is home to the Oris Classic watches, Artix, and Oris Artlier watch lines, offering a variety of designs that cater to different tastes.

Featuring a non-linear power reserve indicator and a 10-day power reserve, this watch is a testament to Oris’s mechanical prowess. Its sleek 43mm stainless steel case, silver guilloche dial, and luxurious Louisiana alligator leather strap make it an exquisite choice for formal occasions.
