Anyone own an Oris watch (NLC)

Post by Gareth » Fri Jul 21, 2006 8:44 am

Lookin to buy an Omega Speedmaster - a watch that will hold walue or at least not dropped loads, something to keep forever. You can pick up a used Omega for about £900+ where as you an pick up an Oris new for that.

Looking at Oris-watches.com you can get a lot of watch for the money. Mainly looking at the TT1 divers watch. So, although it's a swiss movement watch, is it in the same league as Omega?

Before anyone starts...can't afford a Rolex,Breitling....

Cheers

i've got a patek philippe skeleton complication watch. didn't buy it tho, i inherited it! lol

with regards your omega/oris quandary - i'd go for the omega tbh. it's an investment and it doesn't need to be new for it to look the dogs boll0x!

watch out for fakes tho as there are a lot of very good quality fakes about. i had my watch serviced by the rolex/patek phillipe outlet in glasgow and it cost £235! it doesn't even take a battery ffs. but at least i got it confirmed as being genuine as certificates and fancy boxes mean fcuk all.

just watch what you buy, there are bad men about!! :lol:

Was just about to say the same thing - use my phone usually! My last watch died and the one before that I destroyed in a bit of a moped accident! I couldn't trust myself with anything fancy.

I know you said you don't have the budget but a SS Rolex Daytona will make you money. Costs £4k but because of the 4 year waiting list, used ones go for at least £5.5k and vintage ones alot more.

It's a watch FFS. Buy another car or something :roll:

I don't understand how a watch costs £500 let alone £5k.

My Swatch cost £40 and tells the time and date accuratly and without the need for a £200 service each year. I do not need a stopwatch as my life isn't exciting enough to need to know anything that accurate. +/- 5 mins is close enough most of the time.

Why do people buy Yoko 48's when they could just buy a budget tyre from Quik fit....why buy a sports exhaust when the standard exhaust will do...

I like watches and quality costs. :D

I have heard this from people about cars - "why buy a flashy car when anything else gets you from a to b"
