It’s no secret that smaller case sizes are back in a big way, which is something we’re pretty pleased about here at MONOCHROME. A particular favourite is the new Oris Big Crown Pointer Date Bronze (also available in steel), which was introduced at Baselworld last month and boasts a gorgeous bronze case that measures just 36mm. This model came as somewhat of a surprise to us and so we were quite keen to see how this smaller diameter would wear on the wrist. Suffice to say we were not disappointed.

Oris has a well-documented history in the world of aviation, having made its first pilot’s pocket watch in the early 1910s. This was followed by the company’s first pilot’s wristwatch in 1917, and eventually the creation of the Oris Big Crown in 1938, which, as the name suggests, featured an oversized crown so that gloved airmen could adjust their watches quickly and easily.

:lol: Good one.

Lotsa Oris at 36mm these days. Bingo, baby.
I would rather be seen wearing an Invicta than a Hublot - at least I can explain away the Invicta.

Who wudda thunk that 2mm bigger of anything could be a real deal breaker.

I kinda thought I liked the dial, then I read this:

...the watch boasts a gorgeous original light green dial, inspired by a colour from Le Corbusier’s Architectural Polychromy...

Then I didn't like it so much, mainly because I vomited in my mouth a little.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.
