wich is the funtion of the small botton?
now I know...

"Oris developed a pin-lever movement, meaning that you don’t need to pull the crown to adjust time, but simply press the pin a 2 and turn the crown. That is a detail that makes the hole concept fully achieved."

The button at 2 to allow the crown to set the time is pretty cool. The lack of a seconds hand on an automatic would probably drive me nuts though.


And I'm not liking the retail price of 2400 CHF (~2400 USD). Being limited and all, I`m certain there will be no discounts.

I like it also but no seconds hand and too small at 40mm.

It's actually good that there isn't a seconds hand. Too many people have hang-ups about accuracy on automatic/mechanical watches and a seconds hand just makes people too 'anal' about accuracy when they should just enjoy the damn watch for what it is. Leave the seconds hands to quartz watches.

There will be discounts eventually - they won't shift 1,917 of these at that price. No way.
