    INCOMING! Oris BC3 (7501)

    I was bit by the Oris bug and got a pretty good deal on this midsize BC3 (pre red rotor). Does anyone have experience with these? I know it only has 50m water resistance but does anyone use it in outdoor situations? How "sporty" can it get? I'm hoping it'll be more or less a camping/hiking/canoeing beater. Is that wishful thinking?

    Thanks for any comments!

    If it was mine I’d have it serviced and ensure that the seals were done then enjoy the heck out of it. If your BC3 comes on rubber only shorten it a bit at a time until you get the fit right. So many people ended up taking too much off these straps that it became sort of standard advice.

    Thanks for the tips! I plan to get it in my local watchmaker's hands almost as soon as its in mine. The rubber strap was already sized by someone with smaller wrists (womp womp) but i have a couple of great aftermarket options.

    "Enjoy the heck out of it"... will do!
