Better watch brand?

I love them both, but I was wondering which is the more loved brand among enthusiasts.

·

Nomos, for as nice and innovative as it is, doesn't have anywhere near the history that Oris does.

·

They're probably about neck and neck, but Oris make better looking watches in my opinion.

·

Nomos has a specific design language that doesn’t appeal to everyone. Great watches though!

·

Oris is terribly overrated and very much overpriced.

Thanks for coming to my TED Talk.

I guess all comments are correct. Watches are personal preferences, so do you look at the history of a watchmaker or just aesthetics? Modern or vintage? on the latter point, i believe Oris offers both. Nomos has a Bauhaus design, hence the minimalist looks. Both in my opinion has their own watchmaking heritage - Swiss and German (Saxony). However, Oris was founded in 1904, whilst Nomos was in the early 1990s. Much loved? I personally feel, i take history in the watch, as it gives you a 'feel good' factor when the watch you are wearing is a conversational piece. That's my two cents worth :)

I like the both brands but for different things;

ORIS: Diver watches both the vintage Divers 65 and the Aquis ranges.

NOMOS: For their Bauhaus minimalist dials, thinness and beautiful in-house movements

·

Nomos, and it's not even close.

·

Nomos but I like Oris almost as much.

·

I mean those are VERY different companies with different aesthetics (both do push the envelope in their own ways). I like both but for different reasons. Oris obviously has more history, but Nomos is working on it . . . and I like their overall philosophy. I've been flipping through the Nomos Encyclopedia from a while back and kept thinking "These are cool people. These are the kind of people I would want to get a beer with."
