Mumbai: Swiss quality, a proud heritage and purely mechanical in nature, is what works for Oris, Sanjay Sharma, General Manager, Oris Watches India tells Rama Sreekant.
Purely mechanical and driven by distinctive design, Oris watches spell timeless luxury. Made by hand and equipped with the latest micro-technology, Oris has been crafting its own mechanical movements at its Hölstein factory in Switzerland for over a century.
“Design and functions are based on real people feedback, which make the timepiece user-friendly and value for money,” says Sanjay Sharma, General Manager, Oris India.
Following their philosophy of Real Watches for Real People, Oris has collaborated with leading motor racing, diving, aviation and cultural exponents, creating specialist timepieces and design icons. “It`s not just a time-keeping device. It extends to the personality of an individual thereby making it a unique style statement,” he adds. Sanjay attributes the brand`s success to the values that people hold dear and a rich Swiss heritage.
Renowned for producing diving watches, he believes it`s difficult to pick one bestseller. “At least as far as India is concerned, the north prefers rugged looks while the south is inclined towards culture, gold and conventional styles yet contemporary looking pieces. The West of India prefers a blend of both. And that`s where Oris has an edge. Our four popular collections— Culture, Divers, Motorsports and Aviation are symbolic of the philosophy we believe in,” says Sanjay.
