Having earlier this week been let down, VERY BADLY in fact, by a watch dealer in Europe, my family and I now find ourselves back at square one and no longer willing to risk the importation into the UK of a new Tudor Pelagos to celebrate a landmark birthday.
Instead, I've now decided to switch our attention to buying another diver, from you've guessed it ...a certain Swiss brand (readily available in the UK), that should hopefully still deliver a wide smile ...and years of faithful service!
Trouble is, I'm having a wee bit of a difficult time deciding on which model (of the three shortlisted) to finally pick? So if may I'd like to list them below in the hope that Oris owners, and the wonderfully-informed, could kindly provide me their thoughts and opinions on why I should perhaps buy one over the other(s).
I will have the opportunity (hopefully, if time allows) to actually visit the dealer I intend to purchase from, and try the three "Aqui" on the wrist - as I appreciate that's the sensible thing to do, but I'd still love to get some real feedback from the fine folks here on F22!
The Aquis Depth Gauge
The Aquis Titan Small Seconds (in black)
The Aquis Chrono
Many thanks for any help & advice in advance
PS: And a special thanks to Bill (gaopa) for further inspiring me to go the Oris way!
