The Oris Aquis Now Comes In A Smaller Case But Still Retains Its Performance And Value

Bigger is not necessarily better. Great things come in small packages, too.


Oris launched two models in the Aquis collection. This time, they scaled it down, in response to Oris customer feedback. One model’s case measures 41.5 mm and carries the deep blue dial. The other model is fitted with a new oceanic blue gradient dial with a case measurement of 39.5 mm.

Both these watches are water resistant to 30 bar (300 meters) and feature uni-directional rotating bezels for accurate and safe measuring of diving times. Both are available on stainless steel metal bracelets enhanced by Oris’s clasp-extension system that can be quickly adjusted so the watch fits over a wetsuit. The larger model is also available on a rubber strap featuring Oris’s folding clasp system that protects the watch from falling off the wrist. The two watches are also powered by the Oris 733, based on Sellita SW 200-1 movement, which features the hours, minutes, and a date at the six o’clock position. It has a power reserve of 38 hours and beats at a frequency of 28,800 A/h.

Though smaller in size, the Oris Aquis Date is still a high-performance diver’s watch that delivers exceptional functionality without crimping on style and value.
