    One Oris watch in your collection... what would it be?

    I'm trying to build a watch collection that tries not to repeat too many from the same brand... I'm doing a terrible job of it now, but I'm hoping to consolidate.

    If you could only keep or procure one Oris in your collection, which one would it be? I was thinking about the Oris X Hodinkee as the piece for me, but would you consider it to be "classically Oris"?

    I think the Diver 65 at this point is the most iconic Oris since I've been collecting and I started in the 80s.

    For me personally it would be my Frank Sinatra for the funkiness of the design that doesn't look like anything else and I super dig art deco.

    I have four Oris watches now, including the "honey" 65. I'm not a fan of the Hodinkee model myself. I find it bland and worry about the handwinder with screw down crown. The timeless luxury version looks awesome. I like the redbar LE the best myself. The honey is probably a bit too radical or polarizing depending on how many watches you have.

    My third pick for an iconic Oris would be an Aquis or pointer date.

    The ProPilot Cslibre 115.

    One of which I do not have.


    It is not classically Oris, but that matters not to me.

    I have a Calibre 113 and like it. I would not mind having a Calibre 114 either.
    It wasn't this time until now. - Me.

    I have three. If I had to keep one it would be the Oris Aquis GMT Date.

    I'd say the Oris Pointer Date. Probably one of the most iconic Oris complication if there ever was one.

    Don’t have a numbers hangup with Oris, as many of their watches are desirable
