For over 115 years, Oris has been making purely mechanical watches in Hölstein, Switzerland. Comprised of four worlds: Diving, Aviation, Motor Sport and Culture, Oris watches are made for everyday wear and offer the luxury of common sense. That means Oris provides the best possible watch for the money, using useful complications and functional designs. Staying true to a rich heritage, Oris is one of the few Swiss watch companies to remain independently owned and operated.
A big part of Oris’ story is how they behave and how they define their mission. Because of their independence, Oris has the freedom to follow its own path – #GoYourOwnWay. It is their mission to behave more responsibly. The world faces numerous threats and Oris is focused on bringing change for the better, which means making choices that are ecologically, socially, ad financially responsible. This is at the heart of the Oris philosophy.
Beyond ocean conservation and recycled plastic partnerships, Oris’ mission remains unchanged – to produce inventive, high-functioning Swiss Made watches that serve a real purpose and at prices that make sense.
A DEEPER ISSUE
As a new decade begins, the vital role of water has never been more apparent. At Oris, they believe we have a shared duty to behave responsibly and to look after our world and our climate. They are on a mission to bring ‘Change for the Better’, working with non-profit organizations and conservation agencies all over the world, with an emphasis on water, the oceans and the life they contain.
With that in mind, Oris created the Oris Lake Baikal Limited Edition, based on the Oris Aquis divers watch and made in partnership with the Lake Baikal Foundation. Sales of the watch will help raise funds in support of ‘Point No. 1’, a Lake Baikal conservation project run by the Scientific Research Institute of Biology at Irkutsk State University which is also the longest-running and most detailed environmental water monitoring project in scientific history.
