In its 110-year history Oris has proven time and again that it is one of the world’s most innovative watch brands. It was the brand’s founding partners’ dream to produce high-quality watches, that were also value for money, and that spirit continues to inspire and motivate the company today. Not only that, but Oris has always maintained a tradition of developing useful watches with functions that serve a practical benefit for their owners.
To mark its 110th anniversary, Oris has recently announced the Oris Calibre 110, the first mechanical movement developed from the ground up by Oris for 35 years. A hand-wound calibre, it features a 10-day power reserve and a patented non-linear power reserve indication. These two complications have never come together before. Uniting them provided an exceptional challenge for Oris’s in-house team of watchmakers and designers, who worked with Swiss technical specialists and with L’École Téchnique Le Locle on the project over a period of 10 years. The result is a milestone in mechanical watchmaking. It has been achieved using a combination of industrial techniques and engineering. Each calibre will be hand-assembled and tested in Oris’s Hölstein factory by expert watchmakers, some of whom have worked with the brand for over 40 years.
“While Calibre 110’s edges are all hand-bevelled and hand-polished, the bridges’ large surfaces retain their untouched industrial beauty. Calibre 110 is a fine-watchmaking movement produced using honest, industrial principles, and fits with the Oris philosophy of making sensibly priced luxury Swiss watches. More than that, it demonstrates Oris’s exceptional know-how and ambition, both of which are the fruit of 110 years of mechanical watchmaking experience. The Calibre 110 will appear in a new watch, the Oris 110 Years Limited Edition in steel, and in solid 18-carat rose gold. There will be 110 pieces in 18 carat rose gold and 110 pieces in stainless steel. We urge our patrons to watch out for this marvel of a timepiece, a symbol of the brand’s rich 110 year legacy,” says Mr. Madhusinh Jesrani, General Manager, Khimji’s Watches.
