i have always had Oris watches, I think they are a brilliant brand.
Since the year 2000 I have had the following:
Oris full steal pointer day date
Oris Full steel Chronometer
Oris Bc3 36mm
Oris Bc3 40mm
Oris Bc3 + 42mm
All these watches I bought and sold to buy my next Oris, except last year I gave my Bc3 + 42mm to my brother in law who had lost his job, but still did so much for his sister and me.
Having a family of 5 and plenty other priorities I did not want to spend too much, but wanted a new watch from an AD.
I am sorry to say that I felt the 2 Oris I was interested in just cost too much and they have recently gone up.
So I purchased a Longines Hydro Conquest, which was nearly half that of the Aquis.
I really wanted the ProPilot day date, which also cost much more.
I respect Oris for the fact that they have stuck with mechanical watches, they have mostly brilliant designs, they have an almost cult following, they are an independent company (as a Scot, we always side with the small guy or under dogs!) they are progressing with in-house movements, they are not part of some huge aggressive Swatch type company.
Just couldn't afford it this time, they have gone up significantly since 2011 when I purchased the BC3 +
