    Quite a unique, toolish skeleton. I'm not sure I've seen one like it. I'd love to see that bracelet. Oris generally makes an interesting tool/sport bracelet, but this is in another league. The case is also very different from standard Pro Pilots. It appears to have a lot of lines and edges, unlike the straightforward case of the standard Pro Pilot. It certainly carries a hefty price tag. I feel sorry for the guy who buys it at MSRP and then tries to sell down the road. Yikes.
    Anyway, Oris has been on a roll the last couple of years. Good for them.

    Yep. To coin a phrase, value retention isn't everything. *It's the only thing!*

    Good for Oris. They are certainly 'pushing the envelope' with that model.

    Yeah, who cares about aesthetics, craftsmanship, and history. A watch purchase should be cold and dispassionate like an arranged marriage - love gets in the way, just give me a dowry that could choke an elephant and some childbearing hips.

    On a more serious note, "everything"? Meh, that would exclude next to everything. Really it just comes down to buying smart; used, gray, or discount...or a Rolex.

    If I found a watch, I really, really liked, I don't think value retention would bother me.
    Hopefully, the enjoyment of wearing/owing such a prized watch would outweigh any possible loss in value.
    And that's how it should be, I think.

    Absolutely. Don’t fall into the trap of talking about value retention. This is absurd for watch people. We buy what we fancy. Period.
