    Joining the ORIS club with my Big Crown ProPilot Date.

    Hey guys, just got my brand new BCPP date (41mm) and snapped a few pics. I've been hanging out for years in the Steinhart and Affordables forums and finally decided to step out with an Oris. I've got a few pilot watches but always wore them on a strap, they looked great but I wanted a pilot watch on a bracelet for a change. I really liked the uniqueness of the Oris with the hands, the turbine bezel, a date window and font done right and the nice red rotor caseback. I read the reviews and perused the pics for a while and eventually found what I wanted from a GM dealer. The bracelet version was actually cheaper than the fabric strap! I had to watch my costs because being from Canada I was up against a 35% exchange. This is by far the most expensive watch I've ever purchased but it was affordable to me at this time.

    Just a couple of observations: pros: nice modern font
    nice sized hands that reach all the way to their indicies
    screw down crown
    tubine bezel
    see through caseback with red rotor
    cons: not sure what Oris was thinking with the black seconds hand, it's invisible as is the red tip

    Currently running about +2 secs. fast per day.
    Thanks for having me and thanks for looking. Oh, and my apologies for popping out the crown when the second hand was over name.
