Sound The Alarm

During WWII, Oris’ output was limited to about 200,000 wristwatches a year, so to stay afloat it diversified into manufacturing alarm clocks. A novelty today, they proved so successful at the time that Oris continued to evolve its range into the market-leading eight-day-power-reserve model launched at the end of the 1940s.

Keeping Jazz Time

Since 1996, when the London Jazz Festival became Oris’ first major partnership and British saxophonist Mr Andy Sheppard inspired an accompanying limited edition, Oris has fostered an indelible place in the worldwide jazz community. Today, it sponsors the Jazz FM Awards in Shoreditch, east London, every year and releases an ongoing series of official tributes in watch form to legends such as Messrs John Coltrane (pictured above), Miles Davis, Chet Baker and, currently, Dexter Gordon.

INNOVATIONS

The Depth Gauge

IWC Schaffhausen may have launched the world’s first depth-gauge watch in 1999, but in 2012 Oris reinvented it with forehead-slapping simplicity. Somewhat counter-intuitively for a diver’s watch, it works by allowing water into an air channel carved around the sapphire crystal.

The Carbon-Fibre Case

The partnership between Oris and the Williams F1 team began in 2003. More than a decade later, their relationship was viscerally realised with the watchmaker’s first carbon-fibre timepiece. Oris employed processes shared by Williams’ carbon experts to yield a fully carbon case middle that weighs just over 7g.

The In-House Movement

Oris’ 110th anniversary in 2014 marked the return of in-house movement making. The so-called Calibre 110 was a hand-wound beauty, whose single barrel powers proceedings for up to 10 days, its “state of wind” indicated by a circular power reserve subdial.
