I'm not going to lie, I like many of the reissues we see today. This is largely due to the vintage styling, which I think has a style lost in today's watches.
This watch, however, has yet to really grow on me. I like the design, I think the 40mm size suits the watch well and I would enjoy owning and wearing it, but I don't like it as much as some other reissues we have seen (and there are plenty). This watch is based off of the original design-wise, but contains features that are expected in a watch that costs ~1,800USD. For example, the movement is the Oris Cal. 733, which is based off of the Sellita SW200. The case is stainless steel, but it is only water resistant to 100m. However, the original was WR to 100m, so I can see why Oris' designers chose to do this.The caseback is engraved with the same historical Oris emblem as the 1965 original, which is another cool feature. The curved dial is covered by a domed sapphire crystal, which will be distortionless thanks to the fact that the crystal is domed on both sides. The bezel inlay is aluminum. The watch is complemented by a black textile or rubber strap with a stainless steel buckle.
