    Oris Artelier Complication or Oris Artelier Complication 2014

    I am deciding between the Oris Artelier Complication and Oris Artelier Complication 2014. When I compare the prices of these watches on Google Shopping, I find that the Oris Complication costs twice as much as the Complication 2014. As far as I can tell, the only differences are that the Complication has rose gold and uses an ETA movement rather than a Sellita movement. Is the 100 percent price increase justified? And will the Complication hold its value better than the Complication 2014? Lastly, were the Complication and Complication 2014 both released in 2014?

    Below are links to the watches on Oris's official website.

    As to holding their value, "forget about it".

    My guess is that the rose gold accounts for the vast majority of the price difference.

    I just noticed another difference. The Oris Artelier Complication uses a much smaller movement: the ETA 2671. This is a movement designed for women's watches that Oris apparently puts into some of their men's watches. Would this be a deal breaker for anyone? What effects would this have on the functioning of the watch?

    It looks like the Complication has a croc strap and rose gold so this would account for a fair chunk of the extra cost.

    Some how... i find that with the ROSE GOLD decor...

    ...it pairs well with either leather strap or steel bracelet well.
    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!

    Why is that? I am also thinking about getting a TAG Heuer watch. Does that brand hold its value better than Oris?

    As with most, they drops off the table at the moment of purchase.

    It's pretty safe to say that almost any brand you buy drops in value like a stone thrown down a well as soon as you walk out of the shop door with it.

    Are there any aesthetic differences with the Oris Artelier Complication because it uses a smaller ETA movement designed for women's watches?
