Oris only makes mechanical watches, each celebrating the Joy of Mechanics. Geneva’s Pont de la Machine is the perfect venue for the Oris exhibition. The iconic late-19th century industrial building sits on a decommissioned hydro power plant in the heart of the city that once supplied pressurised water from the River Rhône to craftsmen in the area, as well as to cultural institutions such as the Grand Théatre a
short walk away. Today, it’s an exhibition space and a popular tourist destination.
The Oris ‘In the City’ exhibition will be open to the public every day from March 27 to April 1, 10am to 7pm local time. Oris will also be exhibiting at the Watches and Wonders Geneva event in Palexpo from March 27 to April 2. The Salon is open to the public April 1-2.
