Georges ChristianOris is one of the leading Swiss wristwatchcompany building in Swisserland brands. Oris history is more than 100 years old. In 1904, two men born in Le Locle, the watchmaking capital situated in the Swiss Jurassic region, Paul Cattin and Georges Christian bought the watch company Lohner & Co and with 24 workmen founded a watchmaking factory in Hölstein, a small village in the north-western part of Switzerland. Oris is the name of a valley and a brook close to Hölstein. From 1925, the watch manufactory produced rather inexpensive, however, high-quality wristwatches. Simple fasteners fixed to bracelets of pocket watches making them full-fledged wristwatches. As a result of the marketing campaign, Oris watches were sold in England, in English colonies and in South Africa. In 1937,  in Bienne, Switzerland, the Oris dial factory opened. A year later, the Oris brand made its ownOris manufacture in dial production escapements. From 1949, all water-resistant wristwatches were marked with the special signet “Waterproof”, and water resistance became to be one of the Oris advantages. In 1952, the automatic movement 601 with power-reserve was made, which is now in demand. In 1966, the factory produced the automatic movement caliber 645 with the escapement.
