This replica Oris jazz model consistents with the previous models, the design is restrained, with subtle hints at the personality and style of Dexter Gordon.

The sunray-finished grey dial has a brown hue that is beautifully matched by the brown leather strap. The long and thin seconds hand is gold-plated, just like a saxophone and has an extended counterbalance, a reference to Dexter’s nickname ‘Long Tall Dex’, which is also engraved on the watch’s case back together with the limited edition number.

Fully Polished Oris Audi Sport Limited Edition vs Limited Edition II

Black DLC Oris Audi Sport Limited Edition II and the silver Audi Sport Limited Edition

Black DLC Oris Audi Sport Limited Edition II and the silver Audi Sport Limited Edition

Towards the end of 2013, Oris has announced their partnership with Audi Sport, bringing the Oris logo to prestigious racing events of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) and the DTM, German Touring Car Masters. This partnership gave birth to a new collection of motorsports-inspired replica Watches Replica: three limited edition chronographs and a GMT. In this review, we are going to take a look at the first two Audi Sport Limited Edition chronographs, the silver-toned Ref. No. 774 7661 7481 from 2014 that and the black DLC coated Ref. No. 778 7661 7784, a 2015 model. For the sake of practicality, let’s just call them Audi Silver and Audi DLC.A. Lange & Sohne Replica Watches

Black DLC Oris Audi Sport Limited Edition II and the silver Audi Sport Limited Edition

Black DLC Oris Audi Sport Limited Edition II and the silver Audi Sport Limited Edition

Dials… The silver-toned dial of the Audi Silver is highly legible, giving the impression of looking at a tool replica Watch. The decoration is minimal and the lume filled applied numerals with their polished contours jump out from the circular brushed base. This is the kind of dial that is begging you to turn it, tilt it, move it around so that the light can play on all its brushed surfaces and polished accents. The Audi Sport red is used strategically for the chronograph hands, the Audi Sport logo is placed at 3 o’clock and the linear small second display is at 9 o’clock.

Both have rather large dials, giving plenty of space for the subdials, date windows, and the typical Oris Artix “retrograde” small second display. All this space is made possible by the thin bidirectional bezel, featuring a timer scale while the chapter ring comes with a tachymeter scale. Despite its slim lines, it is quite interesting the firm grip offered by the bezel, the secret lies in a rubber insert, an Oris innovation. The bezel insert on the Audi Silver is made of tungsten while on the black Audi DLC the minute scale is engraved on a black ceramic ring.

Having them both at the same time, it feels like witnessing a drag race — which one will get on my wrist in the morning, and wich one will be left behind? They both have the same size (44 mm), same weight, which is surprisingly light for a chronograph thanks to the multi-piece titanium case, and clearly both of them bear the signature of the same designer. You can tell these are two cool brothers, yet they have different personalities and they are cool in a different way.

By the way, both of these replica Watches Replica have a small second display, it such an ingenious solution because of its simplicity, an instant eye-candy. 12 o’clock is reserved for the minutes subdial and at 6, we have the hours. These subdials sit lower, adding volume to the dial. Everything on the dial enjoys plenty of room, except the narrow date window crammed into the hours subdial, it is probably my least favorite feature of this dial.

The Audi DLC is a completely different beast. I can’t believe it has the same fonts for the numerals as the Audi Silver. Its stealth approach changes everything. Legibility was not a priority anymore, this model is about being daring and sophisticated at the same time. There is an even more restrained use of red, unlike on the previous model, here only the tip of the chronograph hands are red, the rest is dark gray. 12 o’clock is still reserved for a chronograph minute subdial, but this time, it comes with a 10-minute countdown. At 3 o’clock, we have a day-date indicator with white text on black, and at 9 o’clock we’ll find the same retrograde small second display as on the Audi Silver model.

When I first received the two pieces for review, I immediately like one of them more than the other, but I tried to stay neutral in order to write an impartial review. Did I succeed, I hope so, but I will let you be the judge of that. All I can say is that my initial opinion did not change over time and I think most of you will react the same way. Go with your fist instinct; whichever of these two you like at the fist glance, it is the one that fits the best your style and personality — I don’t think that you will change your mind. And just to make your life easier, as mentioned earlier, there is a newer iteration that just came out this year, the Audi Sport Limited Edition III, this one too is worth a look.

At 6 o’clock branding has plenty of space to stand out. The hour and minute hands and the numerals are filled with black Super-LumiNova, wich is rather cool, but if I would compare it with the other model, the Audi Silver is a lot brighter in darkness, but I don’t think it should be a deal-breaker if you like the stealth style of the Audi DLC.

When it comes to the case design, they both share the same shape, with brushed surfaces, only the corner of the lugs are polished, emphasizing their unusually high position compared to the bezel. Some might find it that the lugs interfere with the rotation of the bezel, but aesthetically, I like how they give a more aerodynamic shape to these replica Watches Replica.

They both come with black perforated leather straps, an obvious choice for racing-car-inspired replica Watches Replica, with titanium folding clasps — on the Audi DLC, the clasp too is coated with black DLC.

As you could tell from the dial, the two chronographs feature different complications. The two Audi Sport chronographs are based on the Sellita SW 500 caliber modified by Oris. In the case of Audi Silver it is called Oris 774 and it is visible from the back with its typical Oris red painted rotor. The LE2, which uses the Oris Calibre 778, has a black solid case back decorated with the Audi Sport logo and a stylized silhouette of an Audi R18 racing car.

Pricewise, the difference is minimal, the Canadian MSRP for the Audi Sport Limited Edition is $4,750, while the black DLC Audi Sport Limited Edition II officially goes for $5,100.

Full Review With Oris Divers Sixty-Five

Oris Divers Sixty-Five

Oris Divers Sixty-Five

As a designer, I will always favour replica Watches Replica that represent at least the style of our days, or even better those that are in the avant-garde. Of course, there are a few exceptions among replica Watches Replica inspired by iconic models of the past, like the Longines Legend Diver, or the Seamaster 300, and a few others, but in general, I’m not sold on everything vintage or vintage-inspired. When it was first announced, during Baselworld 2015, I really liked the Oris Divers Sixty Five, and I was looking forward to having a closer look at it.Chopard Replica Watches

As it is indicated in the name, this Oris is based on a popular diver, presented in 1965. The original model was a three-hands and date replica Watch with a 36 mm chromium-plated brass case with plexi-crystal, featuring a bi-directional rotating bezel and it was water resistant to 10bar/100m. The charm of the new model resides in the successful update of the specs without impacting the design.

Even now, as I’m writing these lines, I had to stop and grab my camera to take another picture of the dial seen through the crystal, with light coming from my lamp and the computer screen, merging together with the distorted image of the dial. These kinds of distortions will make you fall in love with the Sixty-Five, it is like a girlfriend full of surprises whom you want to marry because you will never get bored with her.

Because I have a small wrist, I’m quite limited in the replica Watches Replica I can wear and modern divers, with their bold proportions, are usually too bulky for me. Without seeing it or trying it, just based on its specs, the Divers Sixty-Five ticks off many boxes on my wishlist.

While it has a larger diameter, the new model is still among the smaller divers out there. On the wrist, it sits flat, the only protrusion is the rounded shape of the curved sapphire crystal. Usually, in a replica Watch review, when it comes to the crystal, I would not go into much details beyond the fact that it’s flat or domed and it has AR coating. With the Divers Sixty-Five, the bubble-curved sapphire crystal deserves a closer look as it really spices things up.

The screw-down crown is fairly large compared to the rest of the replica Watch offering and excellent grip, adjusting the time and winding the movement was never a hassle. The stainless steel case is an exercise of simplicity, it is purely functional, the decoration is kept to a minimum, it is almost imperceptible. The thin side is polished while the top part has a subtle, barely visible, brushed finish.

The back of the Divers Sixty-Five

The back of the Divers Sixty-Five

The solid stainless steel back of the replica Watch is decorated with the old ORIS logo, a bow to the original source of inspiration. The pure form of the case and its thin profile focuses the attention on the most important part of the replica Watch, the dial. Even the aluminium unidirectional rotating bezel is reserved and sits humbled by the proud crystal. Unlike the crown, I found the bezel to be a bit hard to operate because of its thin profile, but once I had a good grip, it turns in a precise manner.

The review model was not fitted with the standard black rubber strap, but with a khaki nylon strap that still worked nicely with the overal look of the replica Watch.

Under the hood, the Sixty-Five is powered by the automatic Oris Cal. 733, based on Sellita SW200, a movement we are seeing more and more used by companies moving away from ETA. I’m not particularly obsessed with the accuracy of mechanical replica Watches Replica, and I did not notice any significant discrepancies in time-keeping of the Sixty-Five during the past weeks. On paper, it has a power reserve of 38-hours, nothing to be excited about, after a couple of days of not wearing the replica Watch, you’ll have to adjust the time and wind it.

A closer look at the Divers Sixty-Five’s dial.

The sword hour and minute hands are proportional with the indexes, and I really like that they are slim as opposed to the thick hands we see on many diving pieces. The thin second hand rotates a lume filled circle around the dial, especially in dark conditions it is quite fun to observe.

The dial screams 60s from every angle. Just look at the numerals in the four cardinal points, the “futuristic” square fonts are drawn as negative spaces in a Super-Luminova coated trapezoid block. Luminous coating that is also used for the indexes, the hands and the dot on the bezel, is very effective in dark places and it gives the replica Watch an unmistakable identity. I made a little test by posting a lume shot on Facebook and Instagram to see how long it would take for someone to name the replica Watch, the correct answer came almost instantly. When a replica Watch has such a strong identity that people can recognize even from the lume shot, I think it deserves more than just a hat tip, it should be a serious contender for a place in your collection.

The dial itself is slightly curved towards the edges, adding to the action coming from the crystal. On the original model, the date window was placed at 3 o’clock, on the new model, Oris opted for 6 o’clock, making it less conspicuous by giving the dial a balanced composition.

I love many things about the Divers Sixty-Five, first of all, it’s a piece of design history you can wear on your wrist, it’s a time capsule. It’s a diving replica Watch that was conceived to be worn every day, not just in extreme scenarios of professional diving. 100 meters of water resistance is enough so that you can take it to the beach, without carrying around all the bulk that a deeper — read as unnecessary — waterproofing would have required.

It’s a weekend warrior that I was happy to wear even during more formal occasions. Its sporty and casual DNA, always makes me feel at ease and as I mentioned before, it is a replica Watch full of nice surprises that I will miss, now that I have to give it back. Among the replica Watches Replica launched in 2015, the Oris Divers Sixty-Five is among the few that I really like, I want to buy and I can afford to add to my collection.

In Canada, it retails for $2,000, in a typical Oris huge-bang-for-your-buck style.

Reviewing ORIS Calibre 110

The hand-wound Oris Calibre 110 is the first movement developed from the ground up by Oris since the quartz crisis of the seventies.

The hand-wound Oris Calibre 110 is the first movement developed from the ground up by Oris since the quartz crisis of the seventies.

Oris introduces a 10-day power reserve movement with a non-linear power reserve indication to mark the company’s 110-year anniversary and 110 years of movement manufacturing.

A bit of history

Their dream was to produce the best possible replica Watches Replica at the best possible price. They employed talented replica Watchmakers and skilled craftsmen, and adopted industrial processes in order to deliver their vision. They wanted to pioneer and innovate, to create reliable timepieces that would bring many years of pleasure.

In the late 1920s, the company was bought by a group of investors after the last of the two founders died. It was led by Jacques-David LeCoultre, Antoine LeCoultre’s grandson and the man who merged with Edmond Jaeger to form Jaeger-LeCoultre in 1937.

 

The Oris story begins in the quiet Swiss town of Hölstein in the Jura Mountains, some 110 years ago. Two replica Watchmakers, Paul Cattin and Georges Christian, arrived in the town looking to set up their own replica Watch company. They purchased a recently closed replica Watch factory and called it Oris, a name they took from a neighbouring stream.

 

The Oris factory in Malleray, 1945.

The Oris factory in Malleray, 1945.

By the time war broke out in Europe, Oris had established itself as one of the leaders in quality Swiss timepieces. During the war, with its distribution network stymied, Oris turned to producing clocks, which led to the ground-breaking 8-day power reserve model launched in 1949. At that stage, the company produced more than 200,000 replica Watches Replica and clocks a year.

As the crisis deepened during the 1970s, an estimated 900 Swiss replica Watchmaking companies went bankrupt, and two thirds of the work force were laid off. Oris was greatly affected by the downturn, but continued to pursue its vision, despite the circumstances. In 1982, the company’s General Manager Dr Rolf Portmann and Head of Marketing Ulrich W. Herzog staged a management buy-out and broke away from the group, and Oris Watch Co SA became Oris SA. Although to the outside world nothing had changed, Oris was now an independent company free to plot its own course into the future.

After the war, the company continued on an upward curve. By 1970, it was one of the world’s 10 largest replica Watch companies, employing more than 800 people and producing 1.2 million replica Watches Replica and clocks a year. The continous development of new manufacture movements was key for the company’s development.

These two complications have never come together before. Uniting them provided an exceptional challenge for Oris’s in-house team of replica Watchmakers and designers, who worked with Swiss technical specialists and with L’École Téchnique Le Locle on the project over a period of 10 years.

Unlike many movements with comparable power reserves, Oris Calibre 110 uses a single-barrelled system. Inside this barrel is a mainspring that would stretch to 1.8 metres if unravelled. Reducing this in size so it fits into a single barrel, without making the calibre over-sized, demonstrates exceptional technical know-how. The replica Watch has been tested to ensure the power is delivered evenly throughout its 10-day cycle.

That same year, Oris was sold to the General Watch Company, a subsidiary of ASUAG Group, which would eventually become the Swatch Group. But the boom was not to last as the Quartz Crisis kicked in, almost killing off the traditional Swiss replica Watch industry. The influx of cheap quartz replica Watches Replica from the Far East decimated the global mechanical replica Watch market.

Portmann and Herzog were entrepreneurs and set about revitalising their company. Herzog travelled the world observing emerging trends and discovered that in influential markets like Japan mechanical replica Watches Replica were resurgent. He convinced his colleagues to drop the quartz strategy that had been forced upon the company by the group, and within a few years Oris has made its last quartz replica Watch, focussing instead on mechanical innovations.

Today, over 30 years since the buyout, Oris is thriving. Dr Portmann remains as Honorary Chairman, and the company is run by Herzog, now Executive Chairman. Oris is fully independent and one of the few Swiss replica Watch companies that only makes mechanical replica Watches Replica, and the only one that places such a strong emphasis on presenting consumers with a product that offers genuine value.

Oris Calibre 110 — A unique combination

The Calibre 110 features an Oris-patented non-linear power reserve indication. The display at 3 o’clock on the dial indicates the amount of power remaining in the barrel from 10 days down to zero. At the top of the scale, the notches representing the days are close together; at the bottom they are further apart. As the power is released, the hand moves clockwise around the scale, slowly at first, and then more quickly as the notches become more spread out. This gives the wearer a far clearer indication of how much power is left in the replica Watch as the moment to wind it approaches.

The Calibre 110 is a hand-wound movement with 10 days power reserve combined with a patented non-linear power reserve indication.

We can’t overlook the fact that as an independent company, with the Calibre 110, Oris is preparing the terrain for the time when Swatch Group will stop supplying its ETA movements to outside brands. They do this in the most elegant way possible, by turning to their team of replica Watchmakers and putting together an innovative movement, preparing the brand for the next 100 years.
