Oris Chronoris Date Hands-On

Oris Chronoris Date Hands-On

Postby Racer-X » June 6th 2017, 4:58pm

by Benjamin Lowry "Originally released in 1970, the Oris Chronoris faithfully played the role of motorsports watch within Oris’ dense lineup of sports watches. Re-released a few years back as a retro-racing inspired chronograph, we now see a third version which fully embraces the watch world’s infatuation with all things vintage-inspired. The new Oris Chronoris Date is a faithful reinterpretation of the 1970s watch, sporting the dual crown design with internal elapsed time bezel in a 39mm tonneau case."

Didn't we already discuss the fact that the name "Chronoris" sounds an awful lot like an STD?

If by WE, you mean YOU, then yes. Also that the strap looks like a seatbelt.

Chronoris sounds like a dental procedure.

STDs, dental procedures and seatbelts (though that strap does look like one) aside, it is a nice wartch.
