Oris is pleased to introduce two high-performance models into its Aquis collection of diver’s watches. Divers from a wide range of disciplines trust Oris diver’s watches because of their reliability and functionality, and because they have been specifically designed to perform in the hostile conditions found deep underwater.
For the new models, Oris’s designers looked at how they could make a diver’s watch as legible and therefore as safe as possible when at depth. They turned to research by John Adolfson and Thomas Berghage, who reported in their medical volume Perception and Performance Under Water that the most visible colours underwater are yellow and orange.
Aquis Date Black/Orange with Orange Index
On both new Aquis models the minutes scale printed on the inside of the sapphire crystal, the zero marker triangle on the timer scale bezel and the central seconds hand have been coloured either yellow or orange.
The unique shape of the case and the lugs is uniquely Oris and can be identified from a mile away. The 43mm stainless steel case is satin brushed on the sides and polished on the top of the lugs. While the specifications of the watch might sound intimidating it really does not due to the shape of the watch. With a thickness of 12mm and a lug-to-lug distance of only 50mm, the Aquis is quite ergonometric on the wrist. The unidirectional bezel is butterly smooth to operate and the ceramic bezel on the Aquis means scratch resistance against most elements.

This Aquis comes with the 316L stainless steel bracelet which is very solid consstructed. One can feel how well it is made from the weight and the robustness of the bracelet. The 3 link bracelet features both polished and satin brushed finished finishing and a wetsuit extension the deployment buckle.
