Candy comparison: Oris vs Rolex

Post by koimaster » April 29th 2021, 1:29pm

Oris has really dug into bronze of late with the material repeatedly featuring in the brand’s catalogue in recent years. But one thing Oris has done with bronze that you never really see in the industry is produce bronze-cased watches with matching bronze metal bracelets. We first saw this when they released the Oris Divers Sixty-Five Chronograph Holstein Limited Edition in 2020 with a run of 250 pieces. At Watches & Wonders, Oris returned a full bronze aesthetic to the catalogue, but this time as standard production and paired with eye-grabbing “cotton candy” dials. When I first got a sneak peek during the Oris Annual Review of the Oris Cotton Candy Divers Sixty-Five, I immediately began to draw a dial connection to the Rolex Oyster Perpetual models released in 2020 that revitalised the playful Stella dials of the past.

This would be the perfect watch to wear while tooling around in a pastel Aston Martin. During summer. On Fire Island. Imagine. Just you and your special friend, going antiquing, looking for that perfect Cabriole table...

From everything I've read, the brightly colored Oris' models and last year's OPs are absolutely a love/hate thing - either you go crazy for them or they make you wanna hurl.

Right before the new OPs came out, I picked up a green OP from the previous series, but it was nothing like the color schemes they use now. It was more muted olive green with a sunray finish (I won't post a photo because I think most people here have seen it, plus it's off topic). Personally, the new colors don't do a thing for me at all - but the improved movements make the OP not just a "starter Rolex" - it's simply a great watch.

And both the new OPs and the new Oris models are really good watches. Let those who wanna get brighter get brighter.

Thanks for the comparison! . I think of getting a replica to not spend a fortune on an accessory; it doesn't worth it, that is just a brad. However, I like some models for being really pretty. What are your favorites?
Not a fan of Oris, waiting time on the Rolex OP is loooong (have been on a AD list for years now, my money isn't good enough).

Oh, and don't mention replicas on this forum--------- you will last longer here.

The Oris is gone, sold it to a guy in the office, it looks great on the wrist and almost makes me want to get another. I think the downfall was the bronze, it looked so much better when it was un-patina'd and looked like gold. The OP is still around, Rolex prices have crashed as you have probably heard, and this one can be had for ~$20K nowadays. Prices will go back up so I definitely recommend buying in now and not buying a replica.
