    Oris started this thing call Watchuseek

    Great article from a week ago about Ernie Romers. I get the warm and fuzzy feeling learning Oris along with Zenith were the two dedicated watch threads that started this amazing website.

    Excellent!

    My first "real" watch is an ORIS I bought less than a month ago. For decades I have had Seiko quartz watches, and I finally wanted a mechanical watch, so I did some research and ended up with my Big Crown ProPilot Day Date. I don't need one but a chronograph of some sort is on my radar, maybe the Big Crown ProPilot Chronograph (not the GMT version), or perhaps some other brand, time will tell.

    My first mechanical watch brought with my own money after college was a Oris Regulator Diver. After twenty years, it is still in my collection. Ever since that watch, I would get a new Oris every time I move up in career. Even though I can afford watches much more expensive now, Oris is still my celebratory watch. It keeps me grounded.

    Yeah, I enjoyed his comments very much. A real WIS with what I see as a typical, genuine progression from newb to WIS.
