From 1925 onwards, with the opening of its own electroplating factory, the firm specializes in the production of comparatively inexpensive yet good quality watches.

Oris begins to fit simple bracelet buckles to its pocket watches, thereby transforming them into fully-fledged wristwatches.

The Oris watches, equipped with pinlever movements, find ready buyers, particularly in England and then all English colonies and increasingly also in South America.
