Oris is delighted to announce the publication of ‘The Watch Book, Oris and the Watchmaking History of Switzerland‘, authored by our long-time friend and watch authority Gisbert L. Brunner. Filled with incredible insights and beautiful imagery recalling the origins of Swiss watchmaking and Oris’s unique role in it, it’s a landmark publication.

It joins Gisbert’s best-selling series of books on watchmaking, which is among the most informative and well-respected ever compiled. Working with him on telling our story has been a great joy.

In the new book, which becomes the first coffee table book devoted to the Oris story, Gisbert explores Oris’s origins, sewn by two entrepreneurial Swiss watchmakers in 1904. When Paul Cattin and Georges Christian arrived in Hölstein, the village had precious little watchmaking culture. But from small seeds they grew what would become one of Switzerland’s most successful and globally renowned independent watch companies.

‘The Watch Book, Oris and the Watchmaking History of Switzerland’ is published by teNeues and will be launched at a special event at Watches and Wonders Geneva 2023 at an event in the presence of Ulrich, Gisbert and current Oris co-chief executive Rolf Studer. It runs to 256 pages, with around 200 pages of colour and black and white photography. It will be available to purchase priced CHF 99.95 I €80 | $110 | £69.95.
