Oris Rectangular Returns In Fresh Proportions

The Oris Rectangular has returned. In fact, it never went away. The return to the forefront is marked with fresh dimensions, a new and lively dial, and leather strap combinations to suit any season. 

The Rectangular’s four-sided stainless steel case and integrated straps characterise its classic, dressy, unisex design. The steps on the case flanks accentuate its presence, while the tapering of the lug tips ensures it lays comfortably and organically on the wrist.

Comeback In Art Deco Style 

The dials are available in white, blue, anthracite, and Bordeaux, with an Art Deco-inspired design. Rail tracks run around the dial’s outer edge and an inner rectangle that echoes and complements the case shape. Sword-shaped hands and a date window at 6 o’clock, which plays with symmetry and asymmetry, complete the pattern.

Each watch comes with a quick-change leather strap in one of four colours: yellow, blue, anthracite, or Bordeaux. Oris Calibre 561, a Swiss-made automated mechanical time-and-date movement visible via a mineral glass case back, houses inside each watch. 

Priced at CHF 1800, this watch will be available from November 2021. Eye-catching colours and just the right angle, the Oris Rectangular proves that a watch doesn’t have to be round to be accurate. Oris’ history with Swiss watchmaking goes back a long way. This watch is a fine example of their long-held passion for traditional watchmaking.
