    My Love of Oris Died - Bring the Curves Back

    I really like Oris back when they had the kettle shaped dive watches.



    The new angular case doesn't float my boat. Since 2012 I've looked forward to photos of new Oris watches from Baselworld and they've all been a let down apart from a few motor sport variants.



    Does anyone feel the same way and prefer the older Oris designs?

    What i always like about ORIS's dive watches, is the chunky size and not-so-common design.
    But the thing that turns me down... the case lug area... no allowance of periodic strap change.
    A piece of my favorite timepiece, is like a dish of local delicacies. It's not about how good it may look, or how branded in may came from popular stalls or restaurants. It's always the materials and concoction that produces the best keep!

    A lot of people do have an issue with the integrated bracelet - which I can understand. For me, I find that if I really like the stock bracelet, there is no need to change it.

    Oris used to have the respectable designation of Omega junior. Now Oris is looking like a budget Hublot.

    I too miss the old kettle shape but I love the new style just as much. No way on this earth or Fuller's Earth is Oris a budget Hublot.

    I like the look of them both but the curves are one of the reasons I can easily wear 42mm and even 44mm ("tapered" 40mm bezel prodiver) Oris watches on my 6.5 inch wrists.

    Not having owned the original kettle-case diver (only the Aquis), how does the bezel measure up to the advertised case size? Everyone always says that the Aquis wears small but to be honest I see no real difference between the case diameter and the coin edge of the bezel. Maybe at most 42.5 for the bezel and 43 for the case.

    I find your opinions misplaced and offensive.

    Old style trumps the new by a country mile. Much more character and uniqueness.
