Thank you Oris for lending in a really lovely watch!

Is it silly to value value in the history of a watch? For me, no. I really enjoy the evolution of this model within Oris' history. It is interesting and brings some added strength to the proposition. What do you think?

I don't feel that Oris leads the industry in terms of specs, or tactile elements. There are watches out there from other brands that exceed in those areas. But I have a hard time seeing those watches in the same light as Oris. Oris brings an overall strong package to the table with many of their designs. I think that is more attractive or enticing. Does that make sense? What do you think?

I have the one you are looking for on a bracelet and can say if you find one at a good price it's worth it.
