So over the past year, I have rediscovered my passion for watches and have rapidly expanded my collection (RIP my wallet)
About 6 months ago, I heard about the Carl Brashear limited edition, and fell in love with it. I found a used one for a decent price, and decided to bite the bullet (my first big watch purchase...yikes). Absolutely love the bronze case (with the nicely developing patina) with the deep blue dial! Here are some pictures!
Since then, Oris has been on my radar and when I saw the Oris big crown pointer date, I knew I had to have one. I think the vintage aesthetic is really cool and would make a great dress watch. So last week, to celebrate a milestone at work, I decided to bite the bullet (AGAIN) and pick one up. Based on reviews I had seen online, I was keen on either the 80th anniversary edition (with the green dial and bronze case) or the light blue pastel dial. I walked into the shop prepared to buy either one of those...and then I saw the version with the deep blue dial and the bronze bezel (think its called the bicolor version). There are almost no reviews of this model online, so I wasnt even aware of it...and I was blown away by it. The gold hands and bezel, and white date marker and numerals looks amazing against the deep blue dial! As I am somewhat of a sucker for a blue dial (they seem to work well with my skin tone), I decided to get it. Here are some pics!
So I am now the proud owner of these two beautiful Oris watches! Keen to hear what you all think, and if you have any strap suggestions! :D
