I've opened a similar threat in the Omega forum, but I guess there will be more knowledge about Oris here, so it'll be wiser to hear opinions from this forum as well.
So, I'm about to buy a watch which will preferably last me a lifetime. Being said that even if I get the Oris, I will still look to get the Omega someday.
My choices are:
Omega SMP (Seamaster Professional) - Pure perfection IMO. If I have this, I will look no further for any other watch (unless I get really rich)
Oris Aquis Date - Equal to the Omega mentioned above, with 2 exceptions - the design, which I consider better on the Omega, and the more important part, the movement. That movement, I really need more details about it. Just how inferior is it next to the Omega's? Is it just a minor difference? Is it less reliable (in terms of longetivity)?
Being said that I can get either a brand new Oris for about 1280$, or a 2nd hand Omega (like new condition, and recently purchased) for about 2170$. Both prices I can probably bargain with, and get a little lower price.
My main question for this forum is about the Oris' movement. I really need some more info about it.
