Borrowed Time: Oris Aquis

Borrowed Time: Oris Aquis

Postby koimaster » May 31st 2018, 9:54am

Oris’s Aquis collection of professional-grade divers’ watches has grown to encompass a variety of limited editions devoted to marine conservation and preservation causes (i.e., 2017’s Hammerhead), a handful of small complications like big dates and small seconds, and notably, an innovative mechanical depth gauge. At this year’s Baselworld, the Holstein-based brand added a chronograph to the lineup. It was a timepiece that instantly caught my eye and, as of a few weeks ago, found its way to my wrist for some review time. Here are my impressions of the Oris Aquis Chronograph.

Mark Bernardo's head looks like it got slightly squished under a steamroller.

And yet, it never strained against any of my shirt cuffs and never felt like it was dragging my forearm down; maybe it’s the rubber strap, maybe it’s how that convex curved caseback nestles oh-so-naturally into the subtle indentation of the wrist, but once you start wearing this watch, it begins to feel like a part of you.

Oh, stop it, Bernardo, just stop it.
A tale of six Seikos (two Kinetics, two autos, two Solar): FIVE of them have disintegrated, three while being stored. Please, explain to me that whole "bang for the buck" thing again.

Dumb question: When these guys get watches to review, do they get to keep the watches?
