    Oris Air Racing IV Limited Edition

    Looking at purchasing the watch mentioned in the title. For some reason it speaks to me. I personally don't care one bit about it being a "limited edition" and would really like a caseback that has a window like many other Oris watches. Would I be able to take a windowed caseback from another ProPilot and use it on the Air Racing IV? What do you think the chances of Oris selling me one in this configuration would be? Slim to none? Thanks. Also, why I'm here, I'd like to here your opinions on the Air Racing IV in general.

    I note that the Air Racing IV uses the SW 220, not the SW 220-1 with the enlarged day-date windows that the regular Big Crown ProPilots use.

    I am not sure if the case back from the SW 220-1 models is compatible. I know that the outer case is the same other than the DLC coating, so I presume it may well be, but is there anything on the other side that is differently sized that would prevent a regular Big Crown ProPilot caseback from fitting on the Air Racing IV?

    I don't think Oris would sell you a watch like that from the factory, but I am sure any AD can order you a regular Big Crown ProPilot caseback with the sapphire crystal.

    I can't imagine Oris selling you a watch in that format. Even if you did manage to get hold of a back and it fitted you would have to go outside the Oris network to get it fitted and doing so would probably invalidate your guarantee.

    I guess it's not a deal breaker. It's not like I'll be able to see the red rotor when I'm wearing it anyway. Where's the cheapest place to buy one and still keep Oris's warranty?

    Cheapest place w/ Oris warranty? Topper probably. I checked about 3 months ago and their price was almost as good as the grey market outfits. I wonder what it is now given that the Air Racing V is out. Might be a little bit cheaper even. You need to call them though:

    Topper Jewelers. Authorized Dealers of Omega, Ball, Bremont, Zenith, Glashütte Original, Tacori, Marco Bicego and many more

    E, what country are you in? I ask because Oris can be a bit sniffy about their ADs selling watches out of country.

    If you're in the U.S. and want AD then I reckon Topper will be hard to beat.
