Oris

In 1904 at Hölstein Paul Cattin and Georges Christian established the Oris watch factory. Both come from the watch making capital Le Locle in the Swiss Jurassic region. Starting with just 24 workmen, they took over the recently closed down watch firm Lohner & Co. Oris' namesake is the name of a brook and a valley close to Hölstein in the north-western part of Switzerland.
