The Oris Centennial Set 1904 Limited Edition evokes the rich history of Oris.

To commemorate its centenary, the Swiss watch brand Oris is launching an exclusive Centennial Set, which features highlights from the history of mechanical timepiece innovation. The Oris Centennial Set 1904 comprises a modern Artelier High-Mech Worldtimer, a legendary clock, a historical movement component and the book 100 ORIS YEARS.


To celebrate the year that Oris was founded, the set is limited to 1904 units. The watches, accompanied by a certificate, are individually numbered on the case from 0001/1904 to 1904/1904. The Artelier Worldtimer features an engraving of the Oris factory in 1904 on the case back. As if opening a window into the future, a mineral crystal window reveals the automatic movement with red rotor, the new High-Mech symbol of Oris.

Of all recent movement innovations the Worldtimer is definitely the pinnacle. The watch, equipped with two analogue time displays, permits the adjustment between time zones by means of two push buttons; the date changes automatically forwards and backwards. The Oris movement Cal. 690, a world first when it was launched in 1997- is incorporated into a three-piece stainless steel case from the latest Oris Classic Line Artelier. The dial with rose gold hands and indices, as well as the big crown and push buttons are classical in design.

In addition to the Worldtimer, the Oris Centennial Set 1904 Limited Edition includes a clock, cal. 7320, which has an eight day power reserve. The hand-winding timepiece is modelled on an Oris clock from 1952. As a special anniversary present Oris is adding the individually numbered clocks to the Centennial Set at cost price.

The luxury box also contains a centre-bridge (Pont de centre), an original component part of movement 701 from the year 1982, as a trouvaille for enthusiasts of mechanical watchmaking. 

Last but not least, the set is completed by the new book 100 ORIS YEARS, which fits into a special compartment. Comprehensively illustrated, the book takes you on a fascinating journey through the worlds of Oris. Purchasers of the Centennial Set will receive the book free of charge as soon as it becomes available. 

The set is also available with an 18ct gold watch.
