You know what grinds my gears?

Post by fatman on 2012-04-22, 06:21

I found a Oris a couple of weeks ago that I fell in love with. The price was right and the watch was classy. But the more I looked at the pics the more I kept thinking something did not look right. Well it suddenly jumped out at me. No solid end links.WTF? On a Oris ? Come on...I was ready to call and order it.

Now this morning I found a jdm seiko that really looks nice, no screwdown crown ( which is a must for me ) but I really like the watch and the price but guess what....no solid end links.

Now I can understand on the seiko as to keep cost down but the Oris just boggles my mind.

Not to get too far off track but which Seiko? Can you send a link?
I don't think you are being too anal as presonal preferences are personal preferences. I will say that a screw down crown is also a higher priority for me as I often change bracelets out in lieu of straps.

It looks like that the bracelet doesn't even go with the watch. Also this is the only one they mention the lug width on? I guess they figure the bracelet sucks too.

DB, it looks like the same bracelet as the p.s.hunter and it is the same big crown case but you might just be right.
