Still in love

Still loving this watch. Much more versatile than I originally thought it would be. In the words of Depeche Mode; I just can’t seem to get enough…

On wrist today: Oris Rectangular

·

absolutely love it 👍

·

I would not have thought the shift in the band would help this synch with a gray Prince of Whales check like that. Dead on. Bold move Mav. Yep, convinced. The Oris Rectangular is my next watch.

Love that rectangular Oris. That is a great looking watch. 👌 

I think they nailed the Art Deco aesthetic by removing most of the numerals from the previous models. Definitely looks cleaner imo

·

Great watch! it makes any suit look professional.

·

Great looking dress watch. I like the use of more markers than numerals also. Makes the face classy and a bit understated. Good wear with a suit. 

·

Rectangular watch + suited and booted = 👌

I was down with the red OR all the way the first time I saw it. It takes the stodginess out but still keeps it a classic. You can go fun casual or, like you showed, switch to a black or subdued strap and make it a bit more serious.

I’m interested in the Baume et Mercier Hampton. A more modern take on a rectangular watch but still with some Art Deco inspiration. I think a rectangular dress watch works. 

The Longines Dolce Vita deserves a look as well for anyone considering going rectangular.  The obvious more expensive luxury options are the Cartier Tank and the JLC Reverso. Based on photos alone, I like the look of the new Hampton the best personally.

Stunning!! Think this may be in my future, on  mesh bracelet would be more than one could stand ??  :) 

Picked up a 19mm MiLTAT  Tapered Milanese Mesh Watch Band Brushed for a few other 19mm in the collection including the ORIS Pointer Date 403.

Such a banger! Oris nailed the delicate mixture of Reverso, Tank and Gondolo while still making it look different than all of the above mentioned.

The greyish/green also has a similar flavour. White is definitely the most versatile. You’ll have to post some pics up when you get it or try it on!!

Gotta try them all on!
