Oh my freaking God!! My Oris Small Seconds arrived today and it is absolutely incredible to say the least! This is my first nicer more upscale watch and I have never spent this much money on a watch before. I bought this from authenticwatches.com out of California. A number of people said this was a real good place to go and after I talked to my buddy Trevor and got the OK from him, I decided they were good to go. Guys, if you're getting an upscale piece, give them a good look because at least for my watch, they were the lowest by almost $300. They were good to work thru and the transaction was simple, quick and easy! They ship the order over $500 FREE overnight FedEx! Not a bad way to do tings. It's a lot better than the week or better that it takes the Shop.
Now, I want to thank everyone that gave me their opinion on which Oris to get!! A few of you warned me about the titanium being light and needing to get used to that. Again thanks for the info because I would have bought that one and not been happy at all, so THANKS!!
This watch is 47mm but really wears a tad smaller because the bezel is smaller than the actual case. The dial has a nice wave pattern and the indicies are a bright orange but not too bright. Classy! According to the Oris site, this all stainless steel baby weighs in at 250g. Not too heavy but substantial enough that you feel it which I personally like In fact it could even be a little heavier and I wouldn't mind. The bracelet is a real nice Oyster style and is nice and thick. The case is also thick housing a modified ETA 2836-2 automatic movement making it an Oris 643 caliber. The movement winds in both directions as well.
This is also a serious diver too with a depth rating of 1000m or 3300ft! It's also equiped with e helium release valve. The only thing I'm a little disappointed about and it's a REAL small thing is, this watch has an all steel case back and not their trademark see-thru case back showing off the trademark Oris red rotor. Really, it needs to be an all steel case back to obtain the depth rating that it has.
Overall impression is this thing is absolutely incredible to say the least!! It's clean, solid and a really beautiful diver. I'm extremely happy with my choice and for those of you that like this watch and are thinking about, I say GO FOR IT because you WILL NOT regret it!

I will take some pictures this weekend when I have some time and then I'll get them posted!

THANKS again to all you guys because it wouldn't be as much fun celebrating without you all! I guess I'm so stoked is because this is my first "high-end" piece. I've owned many watches over the years but never one this nice so it's extra special to me. I've never spent this much on a watch EVER! Well, I mean my wife NEVER would have let me spend that kind of scratch on a watch. I got this because I sold a number of my watches that I didn't like or wear anymore and I'm happy I did. It's always the little things in life that make me the happiest!

THANKS again for sharing in my excitement as well as offering advice before I bought it.
