Can’t wear bronze, whatever’s up with my skin (its pH) has bronze staining it with green-ish blue filth. Just a bronze main bloc with a steel back is bad, this is far worse.

Oh, and fuck the Donkeys.

I am a huge Oris fan, but I really don't understand this - a non-diver dive watch that's bronze because, well, it could be.

Uh, what am I missing here.

Would it fucking kill Oris to slap a screwdown crown on the sixty five and make it 200 meters WR?
It already has one - for whatever reason they decided only to rate it at 100m WR. Maybe to keep it thin (although the bubble crystal sort of ruins that)

Sorry that the review is from the donkeys but damn, that is one sexy chrono.

It's nice enough to look at if you like pink gold, but it would turn your wrist green and I bet the bracelet would start to get baggy really fast, given that patina is basically corrosion.

Seems like something to do, because it's in (or was in) fashion. Pass.

I almost liked it until I saw that back. Id also have to keep it polished. Then I thought about it and yeah, no.
