Default Re: Which watch do you own

I have a Casio A158WE and now got hold of an old made in Japan A159W ( I think it is around 15-20 years old). Replaced bracelet with a blue nato strap from my Seiko SNK807 and result is fantastic.

Dial has darkened in some area.

After deliberating a long time, I picked up my first Oris last week. I was deliberating between the diver 65 and the Chronoris. Being a driving enthusiast, the retro automotive inspired look of Chronoris won out in the end.

Nice one! I have personally had my eye on the Divers 65 for the longest time, but the steep asking price has kept me away from venturing into Oris territory. That said, Oris does offer solid value in the price bracket that they operate. The Chronoris has the retro attributes in spades!

Did you get any offers for the festive season?

I have a fully digital hiking watch which needs a new battery and more importantly needs the backlight fixed. Stopped working all of a sudden. Probably a good idea to get the internals cleaned up as well.


Any recommendations on good watch repair shops in bangalore i can visit to have this done?

My Tissot Touch is on the fritz.
The touch sensitivity of the face is not responding.
Changed battery at local Tissot dealer but it isn't working still.
I request members to advise me about the best service centers in Mumbai for Tissot Touch.
This watch is more than 9 years old but if it costs a bomb, I won't bother.
Thanks in advance.

Oris watches are presently offered at pretty nice prices at Ethos Watches.
In Dubai a couple of months ago, I noted that one of the big retailers there was pulling Oris off their shelves and consequently, they were offering some massive discounts on ready stocks.
Oris is a good brand. I like their design, especially their “flush fit watch glass” and big numerals and easy to read luminous display. If one doesn’t want to spend the big dollars on an Omega Seamaster but still wants the “look” then the Oris is a pretty good option...
