Unfolding the Next Chapter

Presenting the next chapter of Oris's in-house manufactured movement.

Oris has been making watches since 1904, and in those years, they have come up with over 270 in-house calibres. But by the late 1970, they stopped manufacturing their own movements and concentrated on creating modules that they can use with the ETA calibres they use.

In 2014, on their 110th anniversary, they introduced their very first in-house manufactured calibre after 40 or so years, and they aptly named it the Calibre 110. It featured a 10-day power reserve with a non-linear power reserve indicator. The following year, they released the Calibre 111, which was essentially the 110 with a date function. After that, the Calibre 112 was presented with a GMT function and a day/night indicator. This year, Oris presents the Calibre 113, a hand wound movement that features a small seconds counter and date indicator at 9, and a day indicator at 12 o’clock. It also shows the week and month indicated by a central hand with a red tip.

“The Oris Atelier 113 reveals its hand-wound movement through a sapphire crystal case back.”

The Calibre 113 is housed in a 43 mm multi-piece stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal glass and caseback. Models come in either an anthracite dial with applied nickel indices, numerals and polished hands, or an opaline silver dial with wither applied gold plated indices and numerals with gold plated hands or applied nickel indices and numerals with polished nickel hands.
