Known for their exceptional value for money, men’s Oris watches have been gracing the wrists of avid watch lovers for over 100 years and have been one of the very few companies to have maintained their independence throughout the evolution of the luxury wristwatch industry. Oris designers, technicians and artisan craftsmen, all come together to exclusively produce these exquisite timepieces for men. Many watches are manufactured specifically to face some of the most adverse weather conditions and most challenging of situations – their robust case constructions acting as a symbol of the company’s strength and determination in achieving the very best that they can. Men’s Oris watches include specialist watches for professional divers, fans of the motorsport industry and pilots. The trademark red rotor is shown through the sapphire-backed case of many Oris watches, as the movement performs through the looking glass, powering the hands around the dial of the watch with effortlessness. It has become the hallmark for all Oris watches and symbolises the company’s mechanical prowess.
Oris watches for men have earned a special place amongst Swiss watch manufacturers. Completely privately owned, the company has the flexibility to shape each design in just the direction they desire. It allows for innovative and unique creations to be developed much quicker than those companies who require their designs to be approved before the production process can even start. This flexibility allows Oris to produce their very own exclusive movements which power masculine-inspired designs that look and feel hefty on the wrist. All men’s watches from Oris are admired for their simple and functional design – qualities that add to the attractiveness and the elegance of each timepiece. Gent’s Oris watches from the Classic collection are great companions for the office, whilst designs from the Williams F1 collection – just as their namesake suggests - are racing-inspired with dials that are equally as legible as those seen in Oris’ pilot-inspired designs. The Artelier collection is home to many sophisticated men’s Oris watches. These instruments feature needle-fine sweep seconds hands and slender minute and hour hands which parade a sleek baton index dial. Men’s Oris watches from the Aquis collection are equipped to face extreme conditions under water. With unidirectional rotating bezels to keep track of remaining diving time and luminous coated appliques, each watch from this collection promises incredible resistance to water damage and a legible dial for quick referencing of the time.
Watches like the men’s Oris Big Crown ProPilot GMT 45mm watch with a grey dial and stylish brown leather strap, are a classic companion for all affairs. Its splendorous charcoal dial is home to a 24 hour track around the periphery of the dial and a small seconds dial at the ninth hour, which balances out the date aperture at 3 o’clock perfectly. The cream-coloured contrast stitching down the edges of the brown leather strap gives the timepiece an authentic look, whilst the red rotor sits proudly behind a sapphire screen on the underside of the watch.
