Resized the band on my first Oris, a classic date the other night. Looking pretty sharp IMO!
It's actually a smidge large/loose for me, but I actually picked this one up specifically for one of my little projects for 2020: the "Clueless Dad Watch of the Month Club." I'm going to using my dirty watch flipping habits for good by lending all the watches I know I'll flip to my horologically-curious but currently clueless Dad to help him figure out his own taste in timepieces so he can finally acquire a nice one of his own. He's can afford/is interested in picking up a truly high horology piece and has talked about buying one for a while, but doesn't have any idea what to get.
I think the Oris Classic Date is a great first entry for this journey as it's a simple 3-hander with luxury touches like the detailed work on the dial, solid and comfortable metal bracelet with milled clasp, etc. It also makes an excellent contrast with the more vintage pieces from my personal collection I've occasionally loaned him, as it constrasts well even against the five-digit era Rolexes I own - just an average observant person will be able to identify the quality improvements in the modern clasp, end links, etc. I expect this piece will really show how far the standards for watchmaking have come in the past 20-odd years.
Enrollment in the "Clueless Dad Watch of the Month Club" is his Christmas gift and I'll report back with his first impressions once I've given this piece to him.
