The New Full-Bronze Hölstein Edition 2020 Chronograph

Patina Diaries

Oris’ new Hölstein Edition Chronograph certainly isn't the first bronze watch from the Hölstein based watchmaker. Almost a decade ago, the trend started with the Carl Brashear Divers Sixty-Five, and now across most of Oris' lines, you can find bronze timepieces.

Our followers on social media have been quite enthusiastic about sharing their Oris bronze creations. So we thought, what better way to celebrate than to display all of our favorite images in one place?

Every week, we'll be choosing and posting our favorite Oris bronze pictures to our Patina Diaries page. Don’t have a bronze Oris? Well, you’re in luck. Read below for a special giveaway.
