Nice review and photos.

One I would love to try.

I really like that one fog. I've been trying to restrain myself from it for a while now, but the last thing I need is another diver. Love the retro look. Perhaps Oris has a shot at the next James Bond movie with this one. I think it could work.

What's not to like except for maybe the Nato-ish strap? Really, it looks good and comfy. Nicely updated but still true to the original. Congratulations.

It's double thick and softer than your standard NATO.

The blue version has a bracelet and I have the money saved but decided to wait until after our yearly Florida vacation/deep sea fishing trip.

You still loving it?

But I suspect it will be too "small" for your tastes.


Not sure how that would be? At 40mm I would think it would be the sweet spot. The Kontiki I just bought feels a tad large at 42mm.

Jeez - how did I miss this thread?? An rare case of a new model actually seeming to improve upon the original one.

Nice one, man. Oris - I still only own one - remains a brand I really respect.
