Orange Watch Company MS-6538

Postby koimaster » November 19th 2017, 11:09pm

The MS-6538 is the latest diving watch from the OWC (Orange Watch Company) in its ISO (In the Spirit Of) Series of watches. It takes its inspiration from the Rolex 6538 made famous in the early James Bond films with Sean Connery wearing this watch while saving the world from SPECTRE. This is OWC’s 7th iteration of the classic diver. OWC watches are incorporate some interesting technology which separates them from other “microbrands. Dan the man behind OWC, he remains quite busy always trying to refine his dive watches. He is like a mechanic, Dan has been quoted many times explaing his watches as “they are like a Porsche 911 – the same but different".

OWC is one of the (very few) micros that I genuinely respect. Every owner I've heard from is happy with this maker.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

I liked everything about it until I got to the price.

I see that the SS grade is not listed on the site. Pedestrian 316/316L no doubt. I'd like to see it with 212 (ala Sinn) or 904L. The watch has appealing engineering and aesthetics.

Cheers
