Dizzy Gillespie Watches

Over 100 years Oris has been making watches in Switzerland. Our watches are purely mechanical and are marked out by their distinctive design as well as the red rotor, the symbol of Oris mechanicals. Oris watches are also popular, as celebrities from Formula One, diving, jazz, aviation, and Hollywood queue up to wear and support our unique creations. Oris is rooted in the tradition of Swiss watchmaking. We have been producing our own movements at the Hölstein factory for a century. For decades our craftsmen have been refining their expertise and launching new and successful movements. We are not only faithful to mechanics, but also leading mechanics into the future. Our current models, which incorporate our pioneering innovations, are equipped with first class mechanical automatic movements – high quality and state-of-the-art.

Dizzy Gillespie

Audacious and angular, the Dizzy Gillespie watch is dedicated to the co-founder of bebop and modern jazz. And there’s something of the showman about the Dizzy Gillespie , with its rectangular case based on the Oris Junior of 1970, improvised numerals, plaid-patterned dial, and smooth black gaucho leather strap. The watch is limited to 1917 units - the year of Dizzy Gillespie 's birth.
