Oris have really got their mojo working with their new releases. Not normally a huge chrono fan but this probably ranks about 2/3 on my Oris wish list :thumbup:

Now if CW were to do something similar with the C65...

Two of those are top of my list, a mixture of bad timing and buyer hesitation (on my part) meant I have missed three opportunities to pick up the Newmark!

^^^ That 42mm Exp II is a big old watch imo. Try before you buy.

The Exp I, on the other hand, is perfect. :)

Yeah, those 2 Rolex pieces will wear and feel totally different. You'll have to try them both on for sure. (And ideally try some older models too.)

All depends on what you like and what you wear - 42 is most definitely not massive to me.

Some man maths - average case size for me = 45.2mm, smallest case 41mm (Tag F1, rarely worn), largest case 51mm (Oris Prodiver) which is MASSIVE! :)
Current collection incl Citizen, G-Shock, Rolex, Seiko, Sinn & Tag.
