Wow . . . gorgeous Oris timepieces (both of you)!

How jealous I am! Exceptional size at 47mm (the 51mm sounds even better)! Thanks for sharing your Oris and ENJOY!

Haha, sadly I don't think the CC will find it's way into my collection. There were only 2,000 made and I believe they're all gone by now...Plus, it's about 1,500% of my watch budget......

:(

Oris makes a solid watch, beautiful case designs and the dials are off the chart. I agree Andrew, that watch is stunning! I was in at an AD looking at them and I can tell you that it was real hard not to pull the trigger. They have a 6 month no interest no admin fee purchase plan. Things like that scare me, I could go nuts!
