Oris’ relation with jazz goes back many years, and the company’s limited edition jazz-inspired watches have become collector’s items. This year, Oris announces a special edition watch that pays tribute to one of the 20th century’s greatest jazz musicians, Dexter Gordon.
Dexter is widely regarded as the first musician to translate the language of mid-20th century modern jazz – pioneered by the likes of Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie and known as ‘bebop’ – to the tenor saxophone. He recorded and performed extensively, both as the lead and as a sideman to fellow jazz greats, including Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole and Herbie Hancock. Later in life, he turned to acting and was nominated for an Academy Award for his role in the 1986 film Round Midnight. He died in 1990.
