I wouldn't buy any of them but there isn't one that didn't make me go "Huh. That's kind of cool"

It seems silly but Tutima needs to redesign their logo and 80s font if they want to pull this off. I like everything else about it, even the stoic design, but especially that movement that looks like a combination of a Dornblueth and Sohn and FP Journe. The only thing standing between this watch and the wrists of watch lovers everywhere is their branding.

Did the hell out of it, but that's inevitable in the same way that MarkCarson hating it is inevitable :P
@LapYoda @JonnyD Excellent usage of gestalt. Bravo for that.

Nixon as a watch brand is going to die out soon at this rate. They've not had an original, sell-able idea in their heads since the 51-30 came out (the watch this is just a smaller rehash of with a GMT hand added). And that was in 2008 IIRC. Sad to see such a giant lose steam so rapidly but as soon as they were bought by Billabong the operation went downhill fast.

Le Petite Prince sucks. Sorry but no one I know who read it as a kid has anything but disdain for it.

I like the movement, I like the lugs. Those two things would imply that the rest of the watch would have a nifty art deco aesthetic. Instead we get the most unfortunate combination of clashing design elements I've seen in a watch not from China.
Give it a simple rounded or onion crown, pick one set of hands, make a dial that actually looks classy instead of some aviator/diver hybrid with weird font, add a more elegant strap and it's an instant winner. Currently, it's awful.

@SN0WKRASH If I'm not mistaken ladies versions of the Aeronefs are coming out. I agree though, so awesome.

Easily my favourite Oris. Just so many little things that make it entirely unique all brought together in one very cohesive package.

@MarkCarson @nateb123 Using words like "tacky" sounds like taking it too seriously is exactly what you're doing. I didn't realize that watches either had to be super-serious diver tools or elegant enough to be worn while doing the waltz in an exquisite ballroom during the 1800s. The ROO has always looked great on the wrist and this is an attractive colour combination that's been well executed. Why do you have to get so mad that it can't be jammed into a rigid category?
In contrast to most it seems, I love it. But I've always thought people take these things far too seriously. It seems like people have forgotten that the RO is a luxury SPORT watch.
How about no?

@Ulysses31 @nateb123 Half of China's GDP growth for the past 20 years has been due to building cities in the middle of nowhere then valuing the housing at prices no one can afford. Most Chinese developments are newer versions of Detroit except Detroit is bankrupt while the Chinese insist their millions of unwanted homes are adding to their country's assets.
My only point is that India's wealth actually is real wealth. When the Chinese can't keep their scam going, they'll be well behind India's slow but steady development.

@Ulysses31 China is equally corrupt. They just have an autocratic government in the place of a capitalist oligarchy. China just likes to tout it's GDP which is inflated by fraudulent speculation of housing. India is the country building the groundwork for a world-class market economy.
