    Oris AD in Hong Kong with large selection of Diver 65s?

    I will be in Hong Kong this weekend, so if you know which of the 36(!) authorized Oris dealers in HK generally have the largest selection in stock, esp. of the vintage divers, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Would love to compare the sizes of the 42mm and 40mm, and would love to find the new Diver 65 40mm black/dark blue dial in stock. Secondarily would also love to check out the new anthracite dial ProPilot, and the blue Artix.

    The Oris sections in ADs I've seen were quite small but I can't say I've seen them all. You could check the store locator and call up the ADs to ask which models they have in stock -

    Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Moon (Silver), Rolex GMT Master II 116710BLNR, Tudor Black Bay 58

    Zenith Surf 01.1250.280, Zodiac
    Super Sea Wolf L.E. ZO9265, Super Sea Wolf 53 Skin ZO9201, Glycine Airman 1953 Vintage L.E., Laco Munster, Seiko SRP789, SRP621, Casio GW-5000-1JF, Halios Seaforth Series III (Abyss Blue, Fixed, No Date), HKED 1963 (Cream, Blued Hands), John Forrest (Lancashire Watch Co. 1902) Fusee Pocket Watch

    Thanks. I was just hoping not to have to make 36 phone calls. :)

    Earl, as stocks will vary literally from day to day and depend to some extent what the shop manager decides to get in you may well end up on the phone.

    The shop on the gf of K11 usually has a decent stock.
    Exit N3 (or was it N4?) takes you to the basement level.

    There's a few Swatchgroup brands here worth looking at and also places where you'll find Junghans.

    For future reference, I just kept the Oris store locator map open on my phone and as I walked around town just checked on occasion whether I was near a store. I ended up going to 5 or 6 stores, and managed to see everything I was looking for between all the stores, except the new Oris 65 40mm black and blue.

    Looking at blues was a prime objective. The blue of the diver 65 42mm is gorgeous, as has been said before, but given the lug to lug and how high the lugs are above the case back, it's really unwearable for my sub 6.5" wrist.

    I did not really care for the Artix blue. I don't want a super electric blue, but the Artix is just a bit too washed out. The Artix 42mm is also too big (love the pointer moon), but the 65 40mm and Big Crown Pointer Date fit great, as I knew from previous experience.

    PS: Thanks for all your help, everyone! I also spent a good couple of hours in the basement of the Mira Hotel looking at literally hundreds of second hand high end watches, including 3D tourbillons and a completely diamond-encrusted PP Nautilus, bezel, dial case, bracelet, and all. They left just enough space on the dial for the PP logo. :)
