    Not taking position here, although the Oris may be nice.

    Edit: I probably would go Sinn, also showed @ Basel 2015 (1350 €)

    Tissot. Either one. The Oris is nice all except the 3-6-9-12 numerals; I don't know what font that is, but I don't like it. Dealbreaker for me.

    EDIT: The newly-appeared Sinn with the internal bezel is rather yummy. Actually, both are. I like them better than the Tissots.

    The numerals don't bother me that much, but their forced "patina" contrast violentley with the hands newish look, despite the faux patina lume. Big mistake, I suppose. It's a pitty, because the dome dial and dome crystal are nice.

    I like the Oris- there is so much to like about it except perhaps the 12,3,6 and 9. I think I'd like to see it in person.

    Hmm, the Tissot is too big and the Oris is too small. I mean, I could and have worn watches at both sizes, but I prefer not to these days (barring my Pan Europ, which is kind of a special case). I dig the PRS, but that's a lot of money for a Tissot.

    I like the Oris. The throwback looks work for me. In all honesty, I haven't been that impressed with Tissot anyway.

    Have to say I like all of those. Black and blue certainly seems to be a thing right now.

    Oris is nice for looks/size, but then again I'm a sucker for retro models.

    And Sinn looks gorgeous if size is not a deal breaker.

    The Sinn with a countdown bezel... interesting.
    I have found that some people just like to hear themselves typing.
