    The watch that started it all-Oris Small Seconds

    Back in 2007, my beautiful fiance gave me my first nice watch, an upgrade from my Nixon. We spent hours looking at different makes and models, but my heart settled on the Oris small second date. It was different, it was unique, and I'd never seen anyone else wearing one.
    It has been with me through the birth of four children, diving in three different oceans, four different jobs, and 2 houses. It was my only watch until 2017, and took a lot of abuse from desk diving, yard work, and from kids in general. The only thing I have ever had to do, is replace the mainspring and 2 regular services. This thing has been an absolute tank! It's scratched, beat up, and the lugs aren't quite as straight as they used to be. But it's still beautiful!
    I now own 3 Omegas, 2 Tags, and a Tudor, but the Oris still gets the most wrist time.
    You never forget your first.

    The SS is a heck of a watch. I started more gently with a blue Diver Date.

    Such a great one, and the best diver Oris has ever made imo. The TT1 is what led to the Aquis, and the rest is history for them. Mine is a 2009. Absolutely love how worn yours is!

    A great story about your first Oris and all the "abuse" and life's ventures it went through - no wonder it holds such sentimental value for you. Thanks for sharing and here is to the next 12 years with your Oris.
