Just bought my bro (not a watch guy) an Oris Aquis Date (43mm back dial version) for a milestone birthday. The features this watch has for it's price range make it an excellent value for the money - ceramic bezel, display back, 300m water resistance, nice bracelet and diver's clasp extension. I am very impressed with this watch and it turned out to be a perfect choice for him…I may just have to get an Oris Diver for myself! Although I think the watch looks awesome on the rubber strap, I decided to get the bracelet version. I found that the way the rubber strap connects to the clasp/buckle makes it very bulky and makes the clasp area about twice as thick as it is on the bracelet. That would make it more difficult to wear under a long sleeve shirt. Other than this, the classic design and functionality make the Aquis a great all-rounder watch. I may make my brother a watch guy yet!
