    Oris Big Date Chrono Thickness?

    Hi all,

    Ive been looking for a chronograph that is suitable to wear with a a suit for a while now, and the Oris Big Date Chronograph is (to me at least) a dressier watch that could work well.

    My question is, how thick are they? I can see the case diameter on the website, but not the overall thickness (crystal included). Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

    Just in case, this is the watch:

    Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    - Matt

    That watch uses an ETA 7750 movement which will probably ensure the watch is fairly thick, but no unmanageably so. I have an Artix GT Chronograph with the same 7750 movement; its case measure about 15mm thick, and I have no trouble wearing with a dress shirt and jacket, YMMV. The watch in question may be a tad bit thicker as I suspect the crystal may be taller that the flatter but still slightly domed one on my Artix GT Chronograph.

    Here is another watch that I have been very interested in, and it too, is very dressy looking for a chronograph.

    01 674 7644 4054-07 8 22 80 - Oris Artix Chronograph - Oris Artix - Culture - Collection - Oris - Purely mechanical Swiss watches.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks. As I research a bit more I am starting to see that most of the 7750 watches fall within 1mm (or thereabouts) of each other. Often the different is purely down to whether or not the crystal is domed. I'll try and track one down in person and give it try. Just avoiding the shops at the moment because it's ...... out there this time of year!

    I'm pretty sure that the crystal is domed plexiglass.

    Case dimension does include the crystal. It's the total thickness of the watch.
