About Oris

For over 100 years, Oris has been a Swiss watchmaker without peer in the industry. Maintaining a reputation for both artistic and technological excellence, Oris manages to create an iconic timepiece that delights those who choose them. Oris remains one of the few Swiss horologists that continues to make only mechanical watches, retaining a sense of pride in the traditions that made Swiss watches dominate the world of timekeeping. The red rotor is the mark that Oris places on all its watches to let its customers know that they’re owning a piece of timepiece history. Here at Merry Richards Jewelers, we’re proud to be able to offer this esteemed brand.

Popular Oris Collections at Merry Richards Jewelers

The Culture and Aviation collections from Oris are engaging timepieces for men, stamped with the Oris reputation for quality. The Culture collection has sub-collections whose pieces are made to be paired with a formal look, whether that look is worn in the boardroom or at a society dinner: Artelier watches include playfully refined touches, such as visible skeletons, moon phase complications, and date, day, & month calendars visible right on the face, the classy look of well-crafted leather bands and polished silver bezels distinguishing them. In 1910, Oris started making watches for pilots, and the Aviation collection attests to that history. Vintage-styled red and green dials boast clean sans-serif numbers that mark them as inspired by an older generation of style.

For women, Oris offers a distinct set of looks from the Aviation and Culture collections. The Classic Date line from the Culture collection is a whimsical line typified by well-polished bezels and gold-tone Roman numerals set against contrasting colors on the dial, including navy blue, silver, and mahogany. With scratch-resistant sapphire crystals with anti-reflective coating, these watches can be taken anywhere. Alternately, look to the Big Crown Original Pointer Date line in the Aviator collection. For women who appreciate one-of-a-kind watches, the Art Deco-inspired luminosity hands and rose gold-tone milled bezel is something that will take your breath away.
