Oris perfect their timepieces by hand, both inside and out. This includes the finishes to their automatic movements which sit inside bold cases from the likes of the Artelier, the Big Crown and the Aquis collection here at Berry’s. Experts at the Swiss-based company’s manufacturing house meticulously craft each piece to ultimate perfection to guarantee that it will fulfil its promise of longevity, reliability and precision on the wrist. The automatic calibres which are based on sellita or ETA movements, have been modified to fit the specifications set out by expert technicians at Oris – those who know precisely what they want to achieve with each new innovative model. From simple three handed day date movements to their chronograph models, Oris automatic watches are composed and conducted with perfection. Each story hides behind the sapphire lens of an Oris caseback, providing a glimpse into the company’s watch manufacture as well as their journey from the very beginnings of the movement’s production, right through to the end.
Expert craftsmen and talented artisans working within various workshops inside Oris’ Swiss-based manufacturing facilities, decorate, hand assemble and carve the finishing details onto each movement with painstaking handcrafted strokes, ensuring that each part of the watch works in complete synergy with the other. The symbol of Oris’ mechanical manufacture is the striking red rotor which can be viewed on each movement through a sapphire crystal glass on the underside of each watch. The cases of watches from Oris’ automatic watch collection have an important role to play in the making of an exquisite automatic watch from these masters in manufacture. The case, whether crafted from stainless steel, rose gold, carbon or ceramic, must protect the internally fitted automatic movement from water damage. From 100 meter water resistant capabilities to 300 meter water resistant capabilities - these cases seal watches from the Williams F1 line and the Oris Classic collection together, ensuring that the movement remains in a stable environment whilst it performs with round-the-clock precision.
As an official UK stockist of automatic Oris watches here at Berry’s, we offer a wide variety of styles and designs from an array of diverse collections. Whilst most watches are fitted with a sapphire crystal glass exhibition case, timepieces like the Oris William Engine Date, expose elements of the movement through a skeletonized dial. Each window into the manufacture of an automatic watch from Oris, whether through the front or back of the watch, is an exclusive invitation – a surrealist plunge into some of the most meticulous processes involved in Oris’ manufacture. Even those components of the movement that remain hidden have received the same level of care and attention to detail, with decorative finishes given by hand. If you would like any additional information on our automatic Oris watches, please do not hesitate to call upon the expertise and assistance of our enthusiastic watch team, who are always on hand to offer advice, technical information and availability details on any on of these watches from this collection.
