    My First Oris!! And I am impressed

    Hi Everyone,

    Just received this morning from a fellow WUS is my very first Oris, the Maldives. I've been lusting for this particular model because I fell in love with the matte ceramic bezel and wonderful blue/grey colour and orange markers. I also love Titanium as it makes wearing the watch so easy due to the light weight. When I opened the box, my first impression was it was a bit on the small side, but that quickly went away once I strapped it on my wrist. I absolutely LOVE the famous doughnut case and the fit and finish is absolutely outstanding. The bracelet is awesome and very very comfy. The combination of the polished and brushed ti gives the watch an elegance and touch of bling so it can be dressed up and down.

    The caseback is very cool too. The coloured glass appears to glow with the beautiful manta ray in the middle. The small second hand has a nice fluid movement. Sizing the bracelet was a breeze.

    I'm super stoked and thought I would never own an Oris and now here I am. From a kid lusting over them through the windows of watch shops and magazine ads to now having it on my wrist and wiping my own drool from one...LOL

    Superb! Slate blue and dive watches just go so great together.

    Thanks folks, I cant keep my eyes off this thing. I took some great photos of it in my light tent just a few moments ago. This thing really is singing to me......apologies for the "flood of photos"....LOL....I'm just a very happy camper.






















    Considering orange superluminova is lower on the brightness chart, the lume is still pretty amazing. I should have known since Oris does things right :)
