    Another "new" Oris (Aquis Date)

    After coming across the 2017 model in the shops and not getting too far with discounts from ADs, I turned to the second hand market and eBay. After losing out on the first one, I got my hands on a slightly older model in good condition, thanks to some sub-par photos on the eBay listing!

    So far I love it. It's a chunky watch but in a good way, the dial printing quality is the standout for me along with the bracelet - I just love the contrast between the centre/outer links!

    Anyway, who cares about the story? Here's some photos.

    Welcome to Aquis land. Sorry to hear that you didn't have a deal of luck with ADs.

    Warm welcome! You've made right decision, Oris is one of the best watch companies with a proud history and Aquis is (to my opinion) is the best of Oris watches!

    Now, try to get a rubber band (I have an original black rubber band and ordered a blue rubber band few weeks ago)! That is also amazing thing!

    Yeah it was a shame, but I didn't really "click" with any of the salespeople so that + the saving through buying s/h means I'm already over it!

    To be completely candid: List price £1,300; most ADs were willing to drop to £1,200 and one committed to £1,170 over the phone; but I got this for £730 including box, papers, receipt, spare links etc.
