So... after a long, long while, over half year of researching, I've finally got a proper swiss watch.
I've recieved it as a gift from my parents, to celebrate several things including my birthday and the end of the high school, as best in class (I did work hard for this watch...).
It's an Oris Aquis Date with the gradient blue dial, 43mm.
Now, I originally really wanted an IWC Ingenieur, because I've also spotted a 2nd hand one from somewhere near where I live so I can go and check it. But in the end... I just figured out pulling out this kind of money at this spesific time is not a good idea. So, since the beginning I knew that if I won't be able to score an Omega/IWC Oris will be the obvious choice.
I mean, I've been to the local AD, I've compared the Aquis to the Aquaracer (Tag), Hydroconquest (Longines) and the Omega Seamaster. The bracelet is so much better than the Tag and Longines, the build quality feels superior as well, and generally I just like it better (Also it reminds me somewhat if the Ingenieur, except for the rotating diver's bezel). Considering the fact that both these 2 cost about 500$ more than the Oris where I live, it's just unbelieveable. Of course, the Omega was better but at x3 price I didn't expect otherwise. I was quite amazed by how close the Oris actually got to the Seamaster. So in the end, I think I've got a wonderful watch. I actually like the integrated lugs. I mean, I also liked them in the IWC Ingy, right? It's just that if the integrated lugs are a part of an amazing bracelet, I really don't mind them, as I won't be willing to switch. Later on I might grab that IWC, who knows...
I really do like the bigger watches since I'm a rather large guy. My hands literally dwarf a Galaxy S4 for example.The Oris will serve me well.
Now I have the Aquis as a daily wearer (seems tough and durable, although I'm careful about my belongings to extreme measures), and an old Omega that my grandfather gave me, which he bought at 1950, and it will serve me well as a dress watch (I was terrified to use it as a daily wear, it really feels fragile). I'm all set!
Now, since it's considered a crime to not bring some pics...
Oh, almost forgot, my grandfather's Omega (moved to leather strap now, though):
My smartphone seems to make it look like the dial is stained or something. It actually has perfect color.
