Anyone have experience with Oris automatics? There are some lower end models not too far outside my range.

Yes - I have an Oris Frank Sinatra complication - had it about 3 months - keeps great time and was a great value relative to other good quality Swiss watches. At this point they seem to be undervalued but can't say for sure. If you like the watch I would go for it.

They're great watches. I just got my 2nd (a heritage) and love them. Lots of great compliments.

Anyone ever try the polishing cloths discussed in this link to keep their watches looking top notch?

I used it on my Rolex GMT IIc polished centers and my pam. Wasn't up to my expectations. Seems like it only works for really fine hairline scratches.

Yeah they're very big watches.. Did you happen to try on an 03 or an 01? The 03 is actually a lot smaller (and it doesn't hurt that his wrists are HUGE).

Do you guys wear your B&Rs to work? I can't imagine having that poking out my shirt cuff and I'd need to double my income before dropping $3-5k on a weekend-only watch.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing
