ORIS Aquis DATE 36.5MM

Oris has introduced a new high-functioning, highly elegant diver’s watch made for the fairer sex, the new Oris Aquis Date 36.5MM; and, ladies, you haven’t been short changed.

That is to say, it is every bit as good-looking and capable as the men’s variant only with a few tweaks here and there to complement the elegance of your wrists.

The watch is based on the very latest generation of Aquis dive watches that were introduced at the Baselworld watch fair earlier this year.

Since then Oris’s designers have set about refining the Aquis case so that it would be more slenderer and more stylish thanks to features such as:

a thinner case, horns and bracelet, and subtler crown protectors. The updates combine to create a dive watch with a more streamlined and more elegant silhouette.

Its 36.5mm case and bezel have been re-engineered so that there is now a small gap between the two. This makes the bezel a little easier to grip and adjust when setting dive-time.

Despite the extra pressure this might appear to put on the case architecture during a dive, this evolution has left the watches’ performance unaffected.

Divers features include: a water-resistant to 300 meters and a unidirectional rotational divers bezel with a scratch- and fade-resistant white or black ceramic insert.

Power comes from an automatic movement Oris Cal. 733, based on a Sellita SW 200-1, with a date at 6 o’clock.

The Aquis Date 36.5MM is available with a variety of dial, strap and bracelet combinations. Its Swiss retail price is 2050CHF on rubber or 2250CHF on steel.
