A new arrival for moi today...a Big Crown ProPilot Calibre 111(previously loved)...initial impressions are quite favorable, so far...the brushed SS case measures 44mm wide & it is about 13.85mm thick(so this isn't a small watch!!)...still, it fits comfortably on my wrist..the knurled bezel is a nice feature, as is the large screw-down crown & La. croc strap...being a fan of the PR sub dials, I like how it is executed on the anthracite colored face of this dial..the date at the 9 o'clock position is an interesting difference as well...

I was going to ask, how does the dial work on the GS compare to your new Seiko?

The dial itself is very nice, but when you talk about the whole dial including markers, hands, date window, etc., it doesn't come close to the GS. Don't get me wrong though, these Seiko dials are very nice.

I forgot to add my comment about how the Oris is so cool & gnarly that it’s radical, man - or the next game of Asteroids is on me!

I usually like whatever nuanced watch Oris is building at the time... this is no exception. Nice addition to your discriminating collection!
