New Oris calibre 403

I like this this one, and perhaps shows, along with the new Hamilton pilot, that there is a trend amongst manufacturers to reduce case sizes as per @Always"watching"'s recent post. This one is, like the Hamilton, 38mm.

Price looks like it'll be in the region of £2500.

I really like that, I prefer the hands and the bezel change makes a huge difference. I'm not convinced anyone needs a five day power reserve, but it sounds impressive.

Agree on the power reserve being unnecessary, but market trends apply I would presume.

Its very nice, but too expensive for me.

They are into Tudor territory, and there has been quite a jump in price over the past few years. It'll be interesting to see if they will be on open retail, or order/waiting list.

Yes i`ve noticed Oris watches in general have jumped up in price too, i regularly browse watch shop shop windows and its one thing i've noted, still affordable watches but the gap is widening.

That is a nice looking watch. For the date pointer I think I prefer the old crescent shape though. I also liked the coin edge bezel of the old models, so it’d be interesting to see a coin edge option on this for comparison. That said I do think it looks great.

The 5day power reserve I guess is excessive, but will probably suit those with a watch rotation. It allows the owner to wear it then something different for a few days without having to reset/wind.

£2500 is a fair chunk of cash to outlay though :swoon:
