    Beautiful. Looks right at home next to your other watches as well. Great choice.

    Thanks Max. I've tried a few different straps on my Pointer Date since I posted a few weeks ago. Genuine croco, shell cordovan etc...

    Interestingly I have a black SARB although I don't have a Reverso.

    I love the sarb, it has perfect dimensions and styling for me. A classic king Seiko / vintage GS look without the hassle which can come with a vintage piece. Wish it had a solid case back though.
    If you had a JLC tribute to 1931 you'd have the dark version of my collection!
    Think will put the Oris on a small scale croco if I can source a decent deployment, the clasp on this big crown is worse than the seikos even though the actual bracelet is really nicely finished.

    That would look nice on your Pointer Date. When you do, please post some pic.

    The bracelet looks very nice though.

    IMO Oris don't know how to make a watch that's not good looking and yours is no exception.

    +2 sec a day as standard. Wow. That's chronometer territory on a good day. Was expecting +10 approx.
