Oris is honoring the place it calls home, the Waldenburg Valley, with a limited 1,000-piece edition that references the historic railway that runs through it. In 1904, Paul Cattin and Georges Christian founded the Oris factory in the heart of Hölstein along the railway’s edge, and the railway acted as a lifeline for the remote valley therein after.
The train line recently received significant technological upgrades that will enable Oris employees to commute to the still-standing factory. To celebrate the alternative, low-carbon means of transport, the company is proud to introduce the Waldenburgerbahn Limited Edition, a steel model based on the brand’s signature Big Crown Pointer Date design.
The limited edition reference has a diameter of 40mm, a fluted bezel, and a domed sapphire crystal that protects a black dial decorated with large, lume Arabic numerals and a railway-track minute scale. The vintage style hands are powered by the self-winding Oris Caliber 754, based on Sellita SW 200, which fuels a pointer date.
The Oris Waldenburgerbahn Limited Edition is finished with a sustainable leather strap supplied by Cervo Volante and retails for $2,100 when converted to USD.
