The Orion had always been my pick of the bunch based on photos, but it lacked something in person.

Much to my surprise, it was the Tangente that caught my eye and now I would REALLY like one!

The attention to detail, given the simplicity of its design is top notch.

^^^ I had recalled seeing one, but having checked, it's the 38.5mm which would wear much too large for me.

A fantastic price though for the sapphire caseback model!

Both stunning watches. I’ve made it very clear on here in the past my thoughts on two-tone watches, but this Oris does get my attention. I think it’s because it’s bronze and not gold. Plus, it would look good on a number of straps and save the bracelet until I’m at an age when two-tone might seem ok?! :lol:

I was idly strolling past one of my local Oris AD’s this morning and glimpsed this in the window.

Crappy iPhone photos under spotlights, but you get the general idea.

And before anyone asks, it went back in the window...
