    I'm surprised that they didn't choose to use cal 400 or a variation of it. Interesting dial though

    I love my Aquis and admire what Oris do but I canít keep up with what seems like a never ending stream of LEís...

    Lovely looking watch but I am getting seriously fed up with certain brands churning out endless "Limited edition" watches

    Nice release - is the bezel fixed or can it track a 3rd timezone..?

    "798 features an independently adjustable 24-hour hand that can be used in conjunction with the 24-hour scale and complementary bezel to track additional time zones. "

    ^Iím asking about the bezel, not the gmt hand. If itís fixed I donít really see its point.

    Had this in my basket twice this evening and bailed out both times! Love it but would feel guilty spending that much wonga on a watch when I have a bathroom to sort out.

    On this watch, the unusual shape of the lugs makes it wear small. (Iíve a similar Oris diver, and it wears much smaller than the diameter would suggest.)

    Diameter isnít everything

    I am sick of all the limited editions also. All the brands are at it.

    Well it spoke to me - so I bought it. Itís unique looking in a world of ubiquitous divers. Quite excited to see it in the flesh.

    Was told if company can sell at full price then no discount as itís Limited. Iím sure others with a long purchase history will get a bit shaved off.

    Ah well. Would be interested in your views on the watch when you get it. Could push me over the edge into purchasing one myself!

    I was looking at the reveal on a video on Scottish Watches earlier and they mentioned these guys - https://wallaceallan.co.uk/

    At one point I had a pop up with a 10% discount code that got applied to this model that was in my basket.

    They still seem to have stock and the code still works - LockDown10

    I love it. Very different. Dial is stunning in person and actually not garish.
