5 Reasons to Add an Oris Watch to Your Collection

An Oris watch is a must-have if you are a watch collector or watch lover. If value is important to you, this Swiss brand is one of the best to invest in. Here are our top five reasons why an Oris is an essential addition to any collection:

1. Oris watches are well crafted

The fact that they are Swiss-made already says a lot about Oris watches; however, their dedication to excellent craftsmanship and exemplary innovation further proves their commitment to quality. Whether you are into aviation, diving, motorsports, or simply want a classic watch, an Oris is sure to boast the functions and features you need and does so without compromising on quality. Using premium materials and highly-regulated movements, Oris watches are not just accurate, but long lasting.

2. Oris has a long history

Oris has been in the industry for more than a century and has a rich history. The brand is adaptable, having survived the Quartz Crisis by focusing on what made the brand great: manufacturing quality mechanical and automatic watchings. Oris was instrumental in developing some of the most innovative features such as the Depth Gauge, a patented feature of the Aquis line of dive watches and the Big Crown, developed in the early days of aviation so pilots could modulate the time while wearing leather flight gloves.

3. Oris watches are Swiss-made

Swiss-made watches are well-respected for the excellent standards their mechanisms and gears must meet. Most are also hand-made and are crafted to stand the test of time. Though often priced at a premium, Swiss watches hold their value and can be worn for generations to come.

4. Oris’ trademark Red Rotor is classic

The brand is known for its trademarked symbol, the Red Rotor, one of the ways you can quickly recognize an Oris watch. Introduced in 2002, the Red Rotor symbolizes the company’s commitment to producing some of the world’s finest watches and is a bold design choice that stands at contrast with Oris’ otherwise subdued aesthetic elements.

5. Oris watches defy classification

While many watch brands fail by trying to do too many disparate things, Oris excels. Between the Aquis and Diver’s collections, Oris has capitalized on the watch world’s appetite for high quality dive watches. Similarly, their Big Crown and ProPilot collections capture the essence of technically advanced timepieces developed for aviation usage. Finally, the Artelier collection is where Oris flexes it’s dress-watch muscles. And across all collections, Oris bridges even more divides, offering both entry-level affordable pieces and top-of-the-line unique pieces. When it comes to Oris watches, there is truly a timepiece for everyone.

These are only a few of the many reasons to consider investing in an Oris watch. If you want to add an Oris watch to your collection, shop at Feldmar. We are an authorized dealer and will help you to choose the timepiece that’s perfect for you.
