    ORIS Artix GT Day Date review...no love?

    Some of the Breitlings Navitimers and the Omega Speedmasters have long been favorites of mine. Something about the black and white combinations that just looked classic to me.

    But I'm not a big fan of chronographs in general since I don't have a real use for them and as I attained a certain age, they prevented me from easily reading the time.

    I stumbled onto a video for this 42mm Oris. It had the look I was after in a size I can pull off on my 7 1/4" wrist at a great price (well below retail, thanks [email protected]).
    It really looks like a much more expensive watch than it is. A handsome piece of kit.

    The quality really surprised me as its my first Oris and I had no real expectations. From the beautiful crown to the gorgeous gunmetal colored ceramic bezel insert and the white chapter ring to the finishing on the bezel edge as well as the mix of satin and polished case. I was pleasantly surprised. The bezel moves precisely with nice solid clicks. The strap is well made and comfortable as is the signed Oris deployment...guess it just fits me right. I have a black strap with white stitching on order to jazz it up a bit.

    Now a 42mm watch is usually my upper limit for comfort. But the Oris wears much smaller and feels more like my Ball Marvelight that comes in at 40mm.

    OK so the SW200-1 movement is cleanly finished if a bit plain except for the snazzy Oris red rotor. The ORIS name on the dial could be a bit more discreet. The lume could be better unless fully charged then its ok for about two hours, but at least its there. Its been running about -3 seconds a day so no other complaints.

    In summary, mark me as one satisfied Oris customer here. Value for dollar with looks well beyond its price point.

    Great looking Oris, too bad that one wasn't around when I was selling them.

    Are you charging the lume with the correct type of light (high UV content) because unless it's the orange I've found the Oris lume to be good.

    It's a very handsome watch!

    I wish they made a 39-40mm model for my 6.75" wrist. I've seen a 37mm date model (not in person), but it might look a bit small due to the bezel (smaller dial).

    Gorgeous watch!

    Is the strap on this version any good? What are the lug to lug dimensions?

    Big fan of that watch. Tried it on at an AD a year or so ago and felt it looked right and I have 6.5 inch wrists.
