Oris was originally founded in 1904 in Holstein, Switzerland. The founding partners focus on simple, reliable, durable, pin lever movements quickly paid off; by 1911 they employed a remarkable 300 people making them one of the biggest employers in the area. By the end of the 1960s Oris was up to 800 employees and was one of the top ten largest watch producers in Switzerland. Ten years later the company was purchased by Swatch Group who refocused the factory for production of very inexpensive watches attempting to survive the quartz revolution. Swatch realized the mistake they’d made and scrambled to rebuild the historic brand with a focus on robust now fully jewelled mechanical movements. Thankfully the Japanese were obsessed with mechanical watches in the 80s and appreciated the quality of Oris’ movements and cases, eating through their inventory as quickly as they could produce it. The Oris Full Steel is the epitome of the companies design motto of ‘form follows function’. The solid steel 39mm case with its flat anti-reflective sapphire crystal and silver/white dial is refreshingly understated. Model 64374964061 is a time keeping machine first and foremost with a secondary “small seconds” subdial to keeping the constant movement of the second hand minimized. The movement is also equipped with a 31 day calendar, luminous navy blue hands, legible Arabic numbers, and a secondary outer minute rim with luminous dots at hour intervals for telling time in the dark. The signed screw down crown is deeply scalloped for easy grip and the heavy bracelet is equipped with a foldover clasp and flip lock safety catch. This Oris is powered by a 27 jewel Swiss made Calibre 643 automatic movement (based on ETA 2836-2) with bi-directional wind, and a 38 hour power reserve. The gold plated and steel movement can be viewed through the threaded case back. The Full Steel is water resistant to 100 meters and is accompanied by all original box and paperwork. Purchased new from an authorized dealer in Toronto in 2006 the Oris has been lightly refinished and comes with a one year Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers warranty. Oris watches have always been a great value and our estate price $700.00 CAD confirms that tradition. Stock #e9827.
