    Oris Big Crown Original Pointer Date -- when was it first launched? Which dial color do you like?

    The BC pointer date line has been in the market for a very long time. However, I can't find what year was these beautiful model launched to the market first time. Does anybody know?

    In addition, the three variations are nice indeed. Which dial color do you guys prefer?

    The black dial.

    Not fond of the strap, though.

    Not sure when they first started them but my favourite was this one that they stopped producing in 2006.Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1447467255140.jpg

    I think it was released in 1938/39.

    Original model




    Old ad.




    BTW, that black model was replaced by this one.

    I'd have to go black dial like most of the other members in this thread. The full numerals around the dial are really speaking to me.

    normally i am a black dial guy, but i like the white one with silver bezel, i would go for gold if it was yellow gold, but practically all watches are in rose gold now.

    The watch has been knocking about since the 30s but I'm not exactly sure when though.
    Of the 3 you posted the top R.H. one would be my choice.

    Had to resurect the thread......

    This one is mine and i think it is hard to beat with the small seconds and full numerals and the 640 27 jewel movement. Some watches you know you will always keep. This is one. Bought 20 years ago and still looks perfect.
    One thing i really like though is the red pointer over he date, its shape fully curves round the date numeral, all the others i see use less of a curve and just don't look right.
