Oris Introduces Its Hölstein Edition 2023

The Hölstein Edition 2023 captures a story that began more than a century ago and that has never felt more relevant than it does today.




Oris Introduces Its Hölstein Edition 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) For the first time, Oris turns to the evergreen Aquis to express a special annual tradition: the creation of a 250-piece limited edition to celebrate the story of Oris and its community.

Dear Friends,

If you’ve been following the Oris story these past few years, you’ll know that the company was registered on June,1, 1904. And more, that on the 1st of June each year, we release a 250-piece limited edition watch called the Hölstein Edition, named after the beautiful village in the Swiss Jura mountains that we’ve called home for 119 years.

This year, we’re delighted to continue the tradition with the release of the Hölstein Edition 2023, which for the first time introduces our best-selling line, the Aquis diver’s watch, into this ultra-special family of designs. As before, only 250 pieces will be made, and sold on a first come, first served basis. Everyone’s invited!

This year, our fourth Hölstein Edition continues this story. It’s the first based on the evergreen Aquis diver’s watch. And it has a few twists. First is the dial color: deep purple. The Oris community has been asking when we’d do a purple dial, and this is the answer.

Next is in the movement. The watch is powered by Calibre 400, our game-changing five-day automatic. As before, this delivers elevated antimagnetism, better than chronometer accuracy (-3/+5 seconds a day) and the promise of 10-year service intervals and a 10-year warranty. But there’s one key difference: no date. This is the first ever “no-date” Aquis, a response to another request fielded from the Oris community.

And then there’s the case back. It’s engraved with the limited-edition number and printed with an illustration of the Oris Bear, diving in his scuba gear. Why? Because why not. It’s fun and it made us smile. And to be literal for a moment, because it shows this is still a diver’s watch water-resistant to 30 bar (300 metres).

The new Oris Hölstein Edition 2023 is sized at 41.5mm in stainless steel and limited to just 250 pieces worldwide. It comes mated to a stainless steel bracelet with diver’s extension. The new Hölstein Edition 2023 is priced at $4,300 USD and 5,800 CAD.

The watch is now exclusively available on Oris’ website.




When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
