Oris watches are a well known Swiss watch and are very popular. The company has a reputation of making timepieces that stand the test of time. Their collections are based on their history in sport, aviation and fashion. The current collections of the Williams F1, Flight Timer and Frank Sinatra reflect these backgrounds.
But what really makes Oris watches stand apart from other Swiss watches is their use of the date pointer. Most date watches display the date as a number in a rectangular window on the watch face. As the date changes, the date flips and the new date is shown in the window. However some of the collections of Oris watches use the legendary date pointer.
The date pointer is a third (or fourth arm if there is also a second hand) that rotates around the face of the watch. In effect there are two sets of numerals on the watch face. The inner circle has the usual hour numbers or marks, whereas the outer circle contains the 31 days of a month. When the hour arm passes midnight the date arm moves to the next day.
The date arm (or date sweep) usually matches the same colour as the hour and minute arms, but the tip is usually red in colour – to make the indication of date more visible. Also the end of the date arm is either a T-shape of horse shoe shape. Of the two, the horse shore shape is probably the more aesthetically pleasing.
Rolex is famous for their bubble over the date window and Patek Phillipe are famous for their complicated date movements showing, day, date and moon phase, the Oris is unique, and famous, for using a date arm. Luckily for the consumer the unique way in which an Oris watch displays the date, comes at a price tag most can afford, unlike a Rolex of Patek watch.

Pantyhose are worn for a number of reasons. Sheer pantyhose that match the skin color of the legs can enhance the appearance of legs, making them look smoother. Darker pantyhose can enhance the legs by outlining the shape and by making the legs seem slimmer. Brown colored pantyhose give the illusion of tanned legs; an ‘instant tan’. Pantyhose also has a practical use, as it can provide warmth in colder weather and let one appear “bare-legged” even in the winter. Pantyhose that are knitted with lycra enhance blood circulation by applying even pressure on the legs throughout the day.
Pantyhose are currently a standard sight in offices worldwide, where they have been accepted as part of a professional dress code for women. Though a barelegged trend is now popular amongst younger women, hosiery is still common in offices and places where formal dress is required. Schools with uniforms often require some sort of hosiery as a part of the uniform (usually pantyhose or tights).
Most pantyhose are composed of nylon and a small amount of spandex, which provides the elasticity and form fitting that is characteristic of modern pantyhose. Unfortunately, the nylon fabric is somewhat prone to tearing and it is common for very sheer hose to ‘run’ soon after snagging on something rough or sharp.
Pantyhose worn for fashion have a standard construction. The top of the waist is a strong elastic. The part covering the hips (panty area) is composed of a thicker material than the legs. The gusset or crotch is also a stronger material, sometimes made of cotton. The legs of the pantyhose are made of the thinnest material which has a consistent construction down to the toes, which may be reinforced to guard against wear. However, a constant complaint of pantyhose is that they “run” or tear frequently, which ensures that wearers must constantly purchase new pairs.
Pantyhose are available in a wide range of styles. The sheerness of the garment, expressed as a numerical ‘denier’/’dtex’, ranges from 3 (extremely rare, very thin, barely visible) to 20 (standard sheer) up to 30 (semi opaque).
There are designs of all kinds which include stars, sun bonnets, quilting patterns, reels, and friendship stars for women. Various appliques can also be applied to socks for women including hearts, roses, lips and anything else that you might like to add.
Children’s novelty socks include those with animal prints, fun fur trims, colored ribbons or netting and beads depicting sports or flowers. Appliques can be applied to children’s socks including frogs, bugs, flowers, sports items, and school items.
Men’s novelty socks could have such designs as the playboy bunny logo, sports items, and more adult themes. They can include scenes from nature as well. Men’s novelty socks can be ankle, crew, or over the calf types of styles.
Novelty socks can be used to celebrate special events like birthdays, holidays like Christmas or St. Patrick’s Day, and Valentine’s Day. They can be used for weddings and other types of parties. Novelty socks can also be used to celebrate the seasons of the year.
Novelty socks can depict anything from the sublime to the ridiculous and anything in between. The possibilities are virtually limitless and can include even risque things. Use your imagination.
Novelty socks are great for adding to costumes. They can be used to hold party favors or they can actually be the party favors. Have fun – that’s what it’s all about.
