    This years "Oris 65"

    So, what do you think it's this years Oris 65 a model that gets everyone speaking and can actually be purchased from a significant part of the WIS population.


    I nominate the Fortis Flieger Pro Day-Date(photo Fratello Watches):

    I know lots of people who have a deep appreciation for the super compressor case with vintage styling.

    Tudor Black Bay 36, sticking with the ETA movement keeping the price down is a plus in my book.

    I've always appreciated Fortis' take on the Fliegeruhr, and for me this is their best effort yet.

    The Alpina Seastrong Heritage would probably be it if they had just placed the date window symmetrically, or skipped it altogether.

    I hadn't seen that Fortis. It's my favorite from the watches posted in this thread thus far.

    What's the price? Case dimensions? Does it have an English day wheel?

    Between 1100 and 1400 EUR from what I found on the internet, should be 41mm, yes, the Fortis ENG/DE day-date movement on a ETA. Here's a topic on it in the WUS Fortis forum:
    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f251/st...l-2803026.html



    Damn, that Alpina is nice...but who and most importantly why decided to put the date wheel on 3:45?

    How about some love for the Muhle Glashutte 29er Zeigerdatum (no annoying date window on this one!):

    Or the ProMare Chronograph:

    Or the Junghans Meister Pilot:

    Any of those hit the nice ~$2000 spot with credible specifications and attractive, original designs.

    Yep, agree with both choices (Alpina and Fortis). Slightly OOT , but I have never handled super compressor before, how does the inner rotating bezel work? Does it snap/click as you rotate it?
