ORIS Aquis BIG date

I think I’m starting to see a trend taking shape this year, divers with dates, divers with big dates. Here’s Oris’s answer to the big date question.



The new Aquis Big Day Date is a good-looking diver’s watch offering a high level of performance and appeal to anyone who might otherwise need reading glasses.



The current Aquis line was recently re-designed to be more streamlined, so that it offers excellent dependability under the sea, but is nice and comfortable under a shirt cuff.



The new Aquis models have a small gap between the case and bezel that has been carefully engineered so that it’s easier to grip and adjust its unidirectional rotational diver’s bezel.



The new Aquis Big Day Date comes with a 45.5mm Stainless steel case water-resistant to 500 meters, a stunning graduated deep blue dial, a scratch-resistant black ceramic bezel inlay,

a Swiss Made automatic movement with said oversized day and date indicator, and the choice of either a dark brown leather strap, a blue or black rubber diver’s strap, or a shiny Stainless steel bracelet.



The watch has a Swiss retail price of 2000CHF on a strap or 2200CHF on a Stainless steel bracelet with divers clasp and wet-suite extension.



What are your thoughts on dive watches with big day / date displays; a necessity as old age approaches or a bloody eyesore?
