... and the Watchmaking History of Switzerland

... and the Watchmaking History of Switzerland

Another volume in the successful Watch Book series by bestselling author Gisbert L. Brunner.

The first illustrated book dedicated to the Swiss manufacture that has been producing innovative mechanical watches for almost 120 years. 3.

Provides astonishing insights into the Swiss watch industry and history, which is marked by contrasts

Book launch at Watches & Wonders 2023 in Geneva, one of the most important watch fairs in the world.

In this new volume of the Watch Book series, successful author Gisbert L. Brunner focuses on Swiss watch history and industry, and in particular on the house of Oris, because what could be a more fitting connection than that of the leading expert when it comes to mechanical timepieces with the watch manufactory that is one of the few to produce exclusively mechanical watches. Founded in 1904, the company stands out in many ways in the luxury world of horology, it is run independently and not by a large corporation, it is valued as a down-to-earth brand and - in an industry that is not necessarily known for this - it focuses on sustainability, true to the motto: "things must make sense".


Of course, technology should not be missing from this volume; after all, Oris has developed 280 different calibres in its company history and manufactured them in its own factories. Companions have their say and the best watch models of the company's almost 120-year history are presented in this usual high-quality volume.

Gisbert L. Brunner, born in 1947, has been involved with precision timepieces of all kinds since the 1960s, primarily wristwatches. During the quartz watch crisis in the 1970s, his love for the seemingly dying mechanical timepieces increased even more. His passion for collecting led to his first articles in the early 1980s. In the meantime, Brunner has published more than 15 books on the subject. He is in demand worldwide as a lecturer.
