Lived with the Oris big crown date pointer for 24 hours and feel I have bonded with it . Always wondered what all the fuss was about with the bronze cased watches , different I must say and the patina has started already be interesting to see how dark it will get.

Comes in at40mm so hits my sweet spot 47mm lug to lug so sits nicely on the 7.5" wrist . Strap not too bad comfortable enough with a nice taper 20mm -16mm .

The chocolate dial Goes well with the bronze Case I think , not to everyone's taste but it's mine and I like it .

Go on be brutal I can take it .

Hard to knock it really, qualities there, its a case of loving the vintage look and changing of bronze, it going to be marmite int it, but who wants to be boring. Yeh I like it and its the sort of watch i would want to look worse and worse, which is a bit invigorating for us lot.

I have a soft spot for oris pointer dates.   Personally the bronze cased watches aren't for me but I could get used to one of these.

 A very nice looking Oris , I agree the chocolate dial does go well with the bronze case , compliments it nicely IMO . Its different , but in a good way . Nice choice and a lovely addition to any collection .:thumbsup:

Can't fault that, still an affordable iconic design that is different from anything else.

Loving the bronze case and the brown dial pairs well. That said I’d prefer a lighter coloured dial for my personal tastes. Looks a nice watch though. Enjoy :thumbsup:

Oris make some very nice watches and are often underated and that one has everything you could want from an automatic Date watch, a very good choice in my opinion, it's a good looking beast.:yes:

Beautiful watch. I love bronze watches and considered this one. Not a fan of this kind of hour hands so i chose diferent one. The chocolate dial looks great. Brown or dark green are the best with a bronze case. 

Great buy. Congratulation. The more patina it will develop the more you will love it.

Lovely watch, well done. I had the burgundy dial one until my tastes changed and I flipped it.

I love everything about these watches apart from the red rotor......it’s just awful looking....I prefer the red and green dial to the brown....but it does look nice

Lpvemine too... so many variants and they all seem to just work.

 

That's an awful lot of patina for a few days old to, what have you done to it!

Love that blue dial pic doesn't do it justice , great choice. I've done nothing to accelerate the patina just never taken it off day or night ,must be sweat , blood and tears ( 710's tears lol ).
