Hello! I just picked up my very first mechanical watch after gaining an interest in watches after the announcement of the Apple Watch. Yup, the Apple Watch got me interested in watches. I almost bought the Apple Watch but after the hype died down I realized that a watch with a blank screen felt soulless to me and the last thing I wanted was another electronic device "updating" me throughout the day.
So I went with an Oris Big Crown Propilot Date and so far I'm really enjoying it. I think it looks great on my wrist. When I brought it home though, I started taking a close look at all of the details and the beautiful craftsmanship of the watch but I spotted two details that seem a bit off to me. One of them is on the clasp. Theres a spring that holds down the flap on the clasp and the spring's end is sticking out of the case. I saw a picture on a review site that showed the same detail so that makes me believe it's simply the way the watch is made. Although I wonder why Oris wouldn't bend the the spring's metal end back into the case to hide it.
The second detail that seems off is around the bezel of the watch. There's a small gap between the bezel and the case. I attached a picture so you can see what I'm talking about. I'm assuming this is probably the way the watch is supposed to be. It does look symmetrical in person, although not in the picture, which makes me feel inclined to think that it's by design. If this isn't by design, my only concern would be whether or not this would affect the watches water resistance.
Can anyone chime in and let me know if I should be concerned?
Much thanks for the help.
