I've been looking around eBay and came across this Oris, anyone seen it in the flesh?

That looks really good.

I like the military vibe.

Agreed, looks badass

Nice and simple. Lugs are too square though. Makes the watch look like a tag.

I've had a few BC3's. They are solid watches for not too much money. Their downfall is their warranty. Last I checked, all the service was done by an independent watchmaker in MA and the communication sucked, as did the amount of time it took for the service to be complete. They also required a sales receipt to honor the warranty.

Thanks for the warranty info.

After watching the video, I realize I don’t like the lug design; moving on.

It's okay, but I don't like the crown guards and the design doesn't flow well from the lugs to the midcase.

Good choice in moving on IMHO.
