My second Swiss and nope, it didn't come in the mail!
October 04, 2019 03:47PM
Last March, I attended a RedBar gathering here in Calgary. This particular venue was sponsored by Oris which spawned a wee bit of yearning for one watch in particular, the Oris 65 Heritage Diver. I was fortunate enough to try it on and then buy one second hand. At the same time, I recall seeing their Big Crown Pointer Date models and ever since then, I felt something else starting to germinate. Now I couldn't remember whether I tried it on then so today I went to a local AD and strapped one to my wrist. Big mistake, I was smitten and I subsequently caved. The AD was extremely helpful and also gave me a discount that they had offered to those in attendance at the March event. Ok, enough rambling, here she is....the 40mm Big Crown Pointer Date. I reckon I've become a fanboy......

Beautiful Oris, Russ. Thumbs Up I've been wanting the larger version of this for a while - one day. Laughing (n/t) Mike D 73 October 05, 2019 12:25AM
Thanks Mike. I'm not sure they come any larger than 40mm though? (n/t) RussMurray 70 October 05, 2019 05:31AM
I thought they did, but it looks like only the chrono version is 43mm. (n/t) Mike D 71 October 07, 2019 07:33AM
Must be a Swiss thing, it was so at Swatch the same and also Zodiac does that... The Chrono is always larger in diameter. (n/t) James T. Kirk© 68 October 08, 2019 10:18AM

Envy Coin edge bezel and a domed crystal. Where have you been all my life Oris-baby? Smile (n/t) BF Hammer 70 October 04, 2019 04:15PM
I kinda figured you'd like the coin edged bezel. Speaking of which, gather up that loose change big guy Wink (n/t) RussMurray 67 October 04, 2019 04:23PM
Cheers! Congratulations, Russ! I love Oris but they tend to be one tick above my comfort level. Zeb 72 October 04, 2019 04:09PM
Thanks Dan. I'm not sure how comfortable I feel...perhaps it's guilt associated with a lack of discipline? (n/t) RussMurray 66 October 04, 2019 04:24PM
Very nice, Russ! Congrats and looks great! (n/t) jhargrave 66 October 04, 2019 04:08PM
