Oriosa Chronograph “Pepsi” with Blue Dial on Cordovan StrapOriosa
Nothing beats a vintage manual chronograph with some personality to it. Oriosa chronograph fitted with a remarkable blue three tone dial flanked by a red and blue “Pepsi” rotating bezel. Cased in a 36mm steel case and powered by one of the most reliable movements to have come out of Switzerland. A Valjoux 7733. The ending to the Oriosa watch company is not a happy one. Sadly the company went under during the 1970’s as the Swiss watch industry was battling the rise of the quartz movement. Arguably its biggest challenge to date.
