Oris watches- opinions?

Post by Mellons » November 24th, 2019, 7:39 am

For some reason I am becoming drawn to oris warches- anyone have or had one, models of interest and specific interesting characteristics?

But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,

I have an Oris Aquis date that I bought a few months ago. I just love it : very well made, slick profile, the radiant blue dial is gorgeous, the bracelet is very very comfy (I used to avoid bracelets; not anymore!). You get a lot for the money (easy to find 20% below retail on Montredo or other known official dealers).

This is interesting to hear- bracelet and lugs look very comfortable, and case shape is not derivative... they also have some diverse movements

I love the Oris Diver's 65 "bico" and I'm keeping an eye out for a Carl Brashear LE model for my dad who was also a Navy Diver.

Have one too, 1000m titan diver with he release crown at 2h and real crown at 4h. Wonderful watch on full titanium bracelet but as All titanium cases, scratches All around. As this one is not à safe Queen. Sellita sw200 movement. Damn accurate and comfy for a daily wear.
But mine haven't got the wrist time it deserves.

+1 for the aquis
Had one, its a jewel
Felt to small, its the 43.5 mm
If i buy again would go for the older model
Its a little bit more chunkier, bracelet is fatter
