    Am I the only one who likes rubber band more than bracelet on Aquis?

    About a month ago I bought my Aquis 43mm on bracelet, because it looks so cool and my wife told me that it looks much more expensive than rubber band. But, after a week I bought a rubber band too. And now I think Aquis looks even cooler on rubber band (it's like ulysse nardin). Who else has both braclete and rubber band and likes rubber on Aquis more?

    I forgot to mention that I have a small wrist (about 6.75") and Oris Aquis 43mm on rubber band looks much smaller and aesthetic...

    I prefer on rubber as well - I have the same Aquis Date as you, as well as the Titan Titanium Chrono and that opinion stands for both. It's an incredible strap and accents the Aquis design. Love the bracelet as well but the rubber is just out of this world. Between the two I have never lamented the inability to easily swap out standard straps.

    I have both for my Carlos Coste. I usually wear it on the rubber in summer/fall and switch to bracelet in winter.

    I love the rubber strap but, sometimes the vanilla smell gets to be too much.

    Depends on the watch, but a lot of oris divers seems to have too much metal when worn on the bracelet (if that even makes sense). I think it's a combination of the wide lugs and thick links

    I have both on my blue Aquis. I like the rubber so much that the bracelet is in the original box, out of reach. I should have saved my money and gotten the rubber only. I think the black looks good against the blue face.

    I have both and I like them both. I am very happy with both options. Great watches. I also have both on my tt1 diver. Equally enjoyable.

    I bought mine on the bracelet and purchased the strap after at an amazing deal! I do love both! I like the strap for when I want my Aquis to be a sports watch and favor the bracelet when I want to dress it up. I did also recently purchase a customer alligator strap from combat straps and I have been favoring that lately.

    Can you show us a photo of Oris on alligator strap? It would be interesting to see it. Thanks!
