Explorer alternative.

Been looking at these Oris Commandos in all their variants for some time. Great value and history.

I really like Oris, but I don't care much for that.

Looks generic. A mishmash of so many different watches, incl Explorer 1, Yachtmaster. Not feeling this one, although I like the Oris 65

Don't like that Oris.

Talking my own book I would recommend taking a look at the IWC Mark XV on the pyramid bracelet as an alternative for the Explorer 1, unless you have to buy new that is. Both great tool watches, but the IWC can be had for a relative bargain preowned and it is the last pre-Richemont Pilot. Using it as a daily the date comes in handy as well IMO.

The Oris shown is not for me. I like the brand but not this watch. Tudor Ranger is a strong alternative.
