ORIS, the well known luxury brand of Swiss watches originated in the town of Holstein. They’ve been available in the Philippines for a couple of years now and during a very classy evening with gentlemen, ladies from the media converged at Greenbelt 5’s event center for a new campaign they’re launching. All with some pretty and finely crafted watches to boot.
Michael Myer ORIS’ Manager for APAC says “Today we want to talk about water, about forests, it’s where our factory is. Nature is inspiring us, it has been there for more than a hundred years. It is about mechanical watch making, it is affordable but very high quality concentrating on machinery to be a step ahead. Today what hasn’t changed is creating time pieces that are nice and of high quality. This has been our ambition from the start (he showed a watch from 1940’s), we are trying to keep that heritage and make sure to keep this identity going. This is our new story called The Big Crown. It can go to streams, automatic, we have very historic designs including our gold diving watches. We also encourage everyone to go our own way, just like our own company. We also have very special projects for the Baikal Lake, the Pacific Ocean, the Great Barrier Reef, also about matters on over fishing (Oris Blue Whale). We want to share the story so we made boxes, back of watches with plastic from PET bottles. This is our Trilogy set! It is what we do, we also did the Tubbataha years ago. Now Go Your Own Way! Thank you!”
Check out the pieces we saw at the event!

|The Oris Ocean Trilogy has three very limited edition watches (1/200 every piece as seen on photos). These pieces are created to don causes to clean, protect the world’s oceans. It is why they talked more about water that evening.|
These pieces are available in authorized stores and their pop up branch in Greenbelt 5. If you're fond of these time pieces, go right ahead because they run out very fast! It was so nice to see the piece that had melted pet bottles on the back of the watch, I would love to have that soon!
