    Aquis 40mm availability

    After a tremendous amount of deliberation, I have finally concluded that the perfect watch for me would be an Oris Aquis in 40mm size (for my tiny wrists).

    There's only one small problem. I can't seem to find one for sale anywhere! Can anyone tell me when this size was last produced and/or how I might go about finding one now? What a pain in the ass!

    In case it's relevant, I live in the EU.

    Does no one at all know when this size was discontinued?

    Contact Rob at Topper and ask him as I'm not sure. But do try the 43mm watch on as you might be pleasantly surprised how well it fits the smaller wrist. I suspect that the ability of the 43mm to fit a more compact wrist was one reason that hastened the demise of the 40mm.

    I believe it was discontinued in 2015. My local dealer could not source one so I was able to find mine at an out of town dealer who had one in stock. Oris told him that the 40mm was no longer available. You could try contacting some ADs to see if there is any old stock out there. Otherwise, you could look at the secondary market....WUS classifieds or watchrecon for example.

    Got one in early 2015, am very satisfied with it. The 43mm was a bit large and heavy for me. Also, the bracelet and particularly the clasp are much more comfortable on the 40mm. Best bracelet, by far, on any watch I have save a Rolex DJ. Very versatile, and serves me well as a "dressy diver", which seemed a bridge too far to ask of the 43 mm.

    Probably some NOS out there, but thin on the ground. Since the model was only in production for 3-4 years, and is an enthusiast/insider model, the likelihood of finding excellent condition used models is good.

    Do you mind saying when you bought yours and how long it took to find it?
