There's no shortage of Swiss watchmakers that will charge more than your mortgage for the privilege of owning one of their timepieces. However Oris, which has been producing fine timepieces for over 100 years, puts a premium on value. It's one of the many reasons that Mr Porter started stocking Oris watches this month— whereas it doesn't hurt that the company knows how to make a great-looking timepiece.
As a lot of my fellow watch aficionados, I am constantly scouring the deepest depths of the interwebs hunting for the next rare find. I do this for a variety of reasons, from researching an article to looking to make a purchase— but, most of all, I do it to test my knowledge on watches; to be able to quickly identify counterfeits, re-dials, and “Frankenwatches”.
