Throwback fun with the Oris Chronoris

Throwback fun with the Oris Chronoris

Postby Racer-X » August 16th 2018, 4:32pm

"A decade for experimentation, the ’70s was an era of bold shapes and brightly coloured designs (men’s turtleneck ponchos, anyone?). While many of these experiments should never be repeated (men’s turtleneck ponchos), there are a few special exceptions. One of which is the Oris Chronoris. Released in 1970, it was the brand’s first foray into the world of motorsport and their very first chronograph. Since then, Oris has built a strong stable of auto-themed watches, maintaining connections to the sport of motor-racing with partnerships including Audi Sport and Williams’ F1 teams. Oris first paid tribute to the Chronoris in 2005, in the shape of a retro-themed chronograph, and once again have honoured the one that started it all, with the release of the Oris Chronoris Date."

I like that one. I'd like to slip it under my sack, too.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

I was hot for that Oris until I noticed that the hour hand was only slightly longer than the indices.

Nice. Bazinga! won’t like the 39mm size but it captures a sort of swinging, drinking-at-the-wheel, 70s vibe well. Still think a Chron-oris should have a Chron-ograph in it though.

Don't care for it (putting it nicely).

Oris is like Breitling in the fact that although they are good watches I dont like most of their designs. That one is no exception.

I feel the same way. I've never seen an Oris that I've wanted to own.

Well, another one just made my list. I really like the way this one looks and the size is great for me.
