Oris and La Cosa Nostra



Actor James Gandolfini may prefer the Kobold SEAL but gangster Tony Soprano’s crew has evidently strong armed control of Oris.

Earlier in the season, on Episode #72 of The Sopranos, Chris Moltisanti visited Hollywood to pursue his dreams of making a horror film classic. He met with actor Sir Ben Kinglsey to discuss the lead role in his opus, but Kingsley was distracted by all the free goodies in The Luxury Lounge. Chris staggered in awe of the expensive swag just thrown at celebrities and one of the main booths featured was Oris. The Oris rep gave Kingsley a “classic chrono” for his nephew and an “elegant” timepiece for himself. Prominently displayed behind the rep was the Oris logo. How prominently was the Oris placement? Enough for Jon Fine to give it an egregiousness rating of 8.5 in an article for Business Week Online.

Oris got another gangster plug on tonight’s showing of Episode #75. On the lam from his former colleagues and needing money, Vitto takes work as a handyman on a New Hampshire farm. Bored to tears with hammering nails instead of hammering on deadbeats, Vitto checks the time, expecting his day to be half-over. He’s shocked to see just how many hours of manual labor he has left, but we’re given a nice, close-up shot of another Oris timepiece.

So, it looks like The Soprano crew has taken care of that thing. You know, that timekeeping thing. With the Oris guys. It’s all handled.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. Gosh, I thought I was the only watch nerd who noticed Vito’s Oris last night.

    So far, I’ve been able to determine this lineup for the rest of the crew:

    Tony: Rolex, a President, I think
    Chistopher: Cartier Roadster chrono
    Paulie Walnuts: Movado museum of some sort (I don’t get it, either).
