    What's the difference between these Oris divers?

    no grey market on this forum

    One is about $200 more and I'm not sure why. They look the same to me. Just curious as I'm not an Oris expert. Only difference I can tell are the reference numbers end in -RS and -BKFS.

    Identical watches, no difference except

    One has a rubber strap, other a textile strap. Rubber cost more.

    ^ This. It may cost more but Oris do make some nice rubber.

    Speaking of rubber strap, I lost the strap keeper during vacation :'(

    Oris rubber straps are very very nice. Unfortunately, the bracelets are equally so and that makes it hard to opt for rubber straight away (although it would be hard to blame someone for picking one up later).

    Re: What's the difference between these Oris divers?

    I'm sure the bracelet is nice but the small-lookin' center links, odd end-link shape, and cheap-looking clasp made me opt for the rubber. Going to get it later this week, hope the rubber is as good or better than the Omega PO 8500 rubber straps!

    Also, lol @ edit of original post. I hope the no gray-market rule applies throughout the forums!

    Apologies to mods.

    6R, I can only really comment from experience on the Aquis type rubber but that can hold its own with anything out there.
