I've just purchased my first Oris, it is an Artelier Big Date (black dial on a leather strap).
I'm a little excited, i've heard good things about Oris brand over the years, I've heard it's a watch with history and soul - unlike some mainstream brands that every men wears on the street.
I know it has the ETA 2892-A2 movement (with big date and sub second modules on top)
I'd like to ask a few questions, if any of you own this model, or ever handled one:
1. How is the big date is set ? I can only see the crown (no extra pusher for the grande date like on some brands)
2. Can I take a shower or swim with this watch? or I better not ?
3. How good is the movemnt in this watch? does it have any known issue or factory defact ?
4. Does the fact that it's a discontinued model with Cal. 665 movement in it make it higher value ? whats the street value of a 2nd hand one in mint condition?
Any input will be much appreciated !
