Oris SA is a Swiss luxury manufacturer of mechanical watches. The company was founded in 1904 and is based in Hölstein in the canton of Basel-Landschaft. Oris watches offer possibly the best value in the Swiss made watch industry. All Oris watches are water-resistant to at least 3 bar or 30 meters. The actual figure on individual models is either shown on the case back and/or on the dial. Most water resistant watches are not designed for prolonged active use in water. But nevertheless Oris watches can easily enhance your watch collection.
