Hi WUS,

I had the great pleasure of being a guest of Oris at the Jazz FM Awards last week, and getting to borrow their most recent Jazz watch, the Dexter Gordon for review.

Hopefully my rambling nonsense if of use to anyone considering this watch! :)

If you had asked me when I started Time 4A Pint, where I thought it would take me, my answer would probably have been “to the pub”.


It most definitely would not have been "to the Jazz FM Awards".

And yet, on International Jazz Day 2018, that’s exactly where I found myself, sipping a few cold beers (of course), and listening to some top notch performances from the best in the world of modern Jazz, courtesy of the lovely folk at Oris Watches.

For those that are more familiar with Oris’ diving, aviation, and motorsport pieces, it may come as a surprise to learn that there’s a musical undercurrent at the Holstein based brand, or that there's any connection between Jazz and watches, however Oris’ relationship with the Jazz community goes all the way back to 1996. A year that saw them sponsor the London Jazz Festival, and produce the first in their long running series of watches that honour Jazz musicians, the Andy Sheppard pointer date (LE of 350).

Very nice. Anyone know the thinking behind the extra-long balance on the seconds hand? It's a bit distracting on such a clean design.
