Oris TT1 Titan Divers Date Review

Oris TT1 Titan Divers Watch

The Oris TT1 (Titan Titanium) Divers Date mens watch is a nice mid-range dive time piece. Oris did something we would like to see more Swiss dive watches utilize, larger lug widths. The Oris Diver is 44mm with a 24mm lug width and looks fantastic. This allows the 24mm bracelet to aesthetically support the larger case better. Some notable features are date display at 6 o'clock, helium escape valve at 2 o’clock, SuperLuminova indices and hands, unidirectional bezel with lume dot, and a black face with wave pattern. It is brought to life by a Caliber 633 automatic movement, built off an ETA 2824-2. The watch has a titanium case and bracelet that will take you to the depths of 1000m.

Pros - Very good value, lug width, nice bracelet.

Consideration - Do to the lug design it would be very difficult to switch the bracelet out for anything other than a OEM straps. This means one can not pick up a nice leather strap or mesh bracelet and slap it on.
