Almost 50 years on from its introduction, the iconic Oris Chronoris returns, updated for a contemporary audience. In 2017, Oris is reintroducing the Chronoris in response to demand from collectors and friends of the brand all over the world.
Introduced in 1970, the original Chronoris was Oris’s debut stop seconds chronograph. Its name was a portmanteau of the word ‘chronograph’ and the company name. It had a streamlined case in keeping with the tastes of the period, and was powered by the company’s first in-house chronograph calibre. The watch had an orange seconds track that ran three quarters of the way around the dial and an orange central seconds hand that gave it a bold, racy look. It marked Oris’s first foray into motorsport watches and began a rich tradition that continues today.
