Oris is one of those brands that can still amaze you. With a very strong Diver collection, getting even stronger with the newly added models. We really fell in love with the Special edition Carl Brasher Diver. Unfortunately we’ll have to do with the photos because all 2000 pieces were gone in a flash.

Kari Voutilainen

We are big fans of the watches of Kari Voutilainen. They appear to be very simple at first sight, but when you take a closer look all will change. The standards of finish on the watch is amazing. The movements are of a higher level. Its of no suprise lot of independent watchmakers come to Kari for their movements.
