I'm just about to pull the trigger on my first automatic watch (coming from a Suunto Ambit 3) when I noticed the newish Oris Williams Day Date (which I think it beautiful) but have a few questions for you.
1st. My only gripe with it is the polished portion around the glass. I'm not saying it's a deal breaker but it ends up bothering me, is there any way to brush that out? I saw some forum member brush his whole Oris Aquis bracelet and did an amazing job.
2nd. I went through all the 269 pages of the "Show your Oris" thread to find a picture of this watch and did not find any. Why is that? Is the watch relatively new or is their something less desirable about having a "themed" watch (i.e. Williams).
3rd. I really like the rubber bands of the Aquis (with Oris written on both sides). Does anyone know if an Aquis rubber strap would find this watch? If so, I'd probably get the bracelet version and get an Aquis black rubber strap to go with it.
4th and last: How does this model compare to the Aquis in quality? I really like the Aquis but my wrist is only 6.5 inch and I feel like a 42mm watch would fit better than 43mm (Aquis) and the Williams really speaks to me with the blue second hand on black dial.
Any other comments/suggestions is welcome. This forum is killing me already, I started looking at the Victorinox Inox Titanium (in blue), then got interested in automatics and thought I wanted a Tissot PRS 516 Carbon Powermatic 80 (blue second hand on black carbon fibre dial), and now I'm at looking an Oris (which is really the top of my range for the moment). As you can see, I'm a sucker for anything blue.
