Oris welcomes the online community to nominate individuals battling against coronavirus and promises to award them with watches. The current time is giving us a challenge we did not expect. However, Oris is truly inspired by the sacrifice and care shown by people around the world.

Last week, Oris used the Oris Bear to post stories on Instagram. The Oris Bear is a symbol of warmth, joy, and hope. The purpose of the idea was to unite people and put a smile on everyone’s face.

The current pandemic is turning the attention to our local heroes like never. Individuals like doctors, nurses, teachers, carers, bus drivers, and many others are sacrificing their lives to fight the COVID-19. Many citizens are going the extra mile to treat and care for the sick and dying ones.

Hence, Oris is taking the opportunity to thank these heroes. They are inviting the Oris Community to introduce their Local Heroes to the world. People can post a picture of their hero on Instagram and their story by tagging @Oris and @Orisbear with a hashtag, #InThisTogether. The Swiss company will be giving 10 of them a watch.

Oris received an overwhelming response with more than 400 nominations within 48 hours from all over the world. Oris truly appreciate courageous individuals as they are an inspiration to a lot of people. So, the famous watchmaker decided to run this effort every week while this battle continues with 50 best timepieces.

Besides Instagram, you can drop an email to socialmedia@oris.ch with your Oris Local Heroes story or to nominate your hero.
