The Dark Side of Oris Watches

Oris, the independent Swiss watchmaker born in Holsten in 1904, has released a limited number of the “Dark Side” two-watches sets inspired to Star Wars saga, which have become available for purchase in the U.S. market in occasion of the release of the new episode The Mandalorian on Disney+, and of the upcoming The Rise of Skywalker movie.

The set includes one Oris Aquis Stormtrooper-themed model and one Oris Pro Diver Darth Vader-themed. In fact they were previously launched in April this year only for the Chinese, Taiwanese, and Hong Kong markets, but the occasion of appealing the US fans of Star Wars with an high end product made sense even for a classic watchmaker like Oris, not much into fandom fancies.

The 250 available sets of the two Dark Side watches has a price tag of 6,900 $, not properly a merchandising item, while one of the 1,300 Stormtrooper Oris Aquis, which can be sold separately, retails at 2,700 $.
