I've only posted over in the Rolex forum but I keep meaning to come over here and say hello. My everyday watch is a TT1 Diver, it's not the MEISTERTAUCHER with a regulater, it's the 300m 994ft with no helium escape valve.
Maybe someone can clarify for me why Rollie's and Omega's both equate 300m to 1000ft and Oris rightfully lables it at 994ft?
Also my seamaster has a helium escape valve and is rated at 300m why doesn't Oris or rolex need an escape valve?
Hello there, Oris guys. I've just joined the Rolex forum but what I've told them may be of interest to you. I was asking why Rolexes have a poor reputation for accuracy, at least here in Blighty among the 6 Submariner owners I've talked to. We all think the Sub is poor at time-keeping. It's a classic watch but what are watches for?
I posted the comment that of my five watches, my 1958 hand-wind Oris beats my two Rolexes, my Omega Speedmaster Racing and my Fortis B-42 Chronograph. I can't identify the model, but it says the following on the back: FOND ACIER INOXYDABLE. I have no idea what it means. The watch was bought for me as a small boy and I still love it!
I'm surprised the profile of your brand didn't pick up after Oris was plugged several times in the brilliant Sopranos TV series
