    It looks like the Rolex Submariner was in an orgy with a Blancpain 50 Fathoms and the Egerhard & Co Scagroof 300 that won the GPHG ( still having difficulty to digest this one) and the result was this new Oris. I cannot believe the lack of imagination of most watch designers. No wonder why the iWatches are slowly but surely taking over the wrist watches segment.
