Last week we got the Oris Aquis Date jumpers watch in for survey. Right on target to be my 52Mondayz watch during the current week, as this week I will go to an occasion which incorporates diving.
Oris Aquis Date – 52Mondayz, week #24
The Oris Aquis was marginally overhauled and introduced at this year’s Baselworld. Compared to the previous Aquis model (you’ll discover our audit here ), the new Aquis is to some degree more refined in its appearance.
The overhaul of an all around appealing watch
The crown watchman and carries have become more relaxed, too the hands got a to some degree more particular appearance. The bezel trim got brushed from lustrous fired. All things considered little changes which influence the presence of the watch towards more gentle. While still a lot of staying the strong and hearty device watch a jumpers watch ought to be.
An Oris Aquis is a conspicuous jumper. In any case, what I like such a huge amount about the watch is that it’s not another look-alike of the Rolex Submariner . Obviously it has a dark dial with white hands and lists, and a dark pivoting bezel. In any case, the state of everything about the watch is close to home to such an extent that it is undeniably an Oris Aquis.
With a case distance across of 43,5 mm the Oris Aquis Date is very present on the wrist. Surely on a tempered steel arm band. Presumably the short drags make that it’s not excessively present. On my moderate 18 cm wrist, it fits very well.
The hardened steel bracelet
Coming back to the hardened steel arm band: it appears to be strong and is beautifully finished for certain pleasant subtleties. The upper side of the side connections of the wristband are cleaned. Much the same as the top side of the drags, and even the upper side of the crown monitor and the bezel are cleaned. Very much considered. The collapsing clasp closes with a firm and secure snap, hold by two pins at within. Pressing the two side catches of the fasten opens it again.
There are 5 removable full-size joins in the arm band, in addition to 2 half measure ones. Too there are 3 openings in the catch to fine change the length of the arm band. I’m sure these truly adaptable change prospects will make it fit to any measure or state of wrist. Eliminating joins is enough done by little screws. An in-and out-collapsing jumping augmentation (for a 3 mm plunging suit I surmise) completes the excellent bracelet.
Finish and design
Further on completing: the sides of the watch packaging are brushed, similar to the sides of the wristband and the middle connections. The sides of the crown watch and the collapsing catch are brushed also, it is all very well-balanced. And all adding to the inclination that this watch is something serious.
What I like and referenced about the plan and type of the packaging, is that it’s cone shaped. From the case back upwards the packaging gets smaller. Only up to the turning bezel, which is a similar breadth again as the case back. This is a marvelous method to ease snatching of the turning bezel, without making it bigger than the breadth of the actual watch. I’ll attempt to get that in the pictures.
Oris Caliber 733 automatic movement
Oris wouldn’t be Oris if there’s no mechanical development inside. Which is obviously the situation with the programmed Oris 733 caliber, in light of the Sellita SW 200-1S. To me it is somewhat abnormal for a plunging watch (mind you the watch is evaluated 300 meters), however this development can be respected through a straightforward caseback. For Oris likely sufficient as the obvious red rotor is important for their plan strategy.
Further determinations and price
The Oris Aquis Date has a domed sapphire precious stone which is two-sided hostile to intelligent. Obviously, the grippy crown of this watch has a screw down development. The iridescent material utilized on all fours glows bluish under low light conditions and is named Super-LumiNova BG W9.
The Oris reference number of this watch is, and I kid you not, 01 733 7730 4154-07 8 24 05PEB. The cost for the watch I’m wearing this week is € 1.800,= (counting VAT) while an adaptation with elastic or calfskin tie is accessible at € 1.600,=. Altogether the Oris Aquis is accessible in no under 99 varieties, you’ll discover them all at the Oris site .
