Oris Chronoris Date - 1970 Is Back!

Post by Racer-X » March 23rd 2017, 12:54pm

"The Chronoris Date is a modern version of the vintage watch, of the same name, released by Oris 47 years ago. The Chronoris was first introduced in 1970 and was a stop-seconds chronograph, not to mention the first chronograph for the Swiss maker. The name, as you might have guessed, is a combination of the words chronograph and Oris, and the last Chronoris was released in 2005, so it has been a little while."

The watch is really cool, the grey NATO strap is fucking ghastly. Looks much better on a leather strap, but the bracelet is not half bad.
You cannot explain away a wantonly immoral act, because you think that it is connected to some higher purpose.

I'm with you on this one. Sometimes I think I don't belong in this hobby, because I really don't like about 80 percent of virtually everything that's "trendy."
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster

Or something they encounter in an episode of Star Trek, aye.

The gray strap does look exactly like a seatbelt to my eyes.
