So about two years ago I purchased on Aquis (orange on black) on a whim. Having owned a variety of divers at various price points the Aquis really impressed me, and it soon found a regular spot in the daily watch rotation. However, being a somewhat serial flipper, the Aquis found its way on the chopping block about a year later to fund an SMP.
While I have flipped dozens of watches over the years, for some reason the Aquis always stayed in the back of my mind and is the only one I can remember selling that I almost instantly regretted. Every time I saw a picture of one on the forum I was tempted to run back to my local AD. Fast forward to today, and when I passed my local AD while getting lunch I dangerously decided to step inside, knowing full well my impetuous habits when it comes to watch purchasing.
Oops! Looks like my wallet couldn't stay in my pocket! Is it another Aquis or was I tempted by another Oris offering?
aaaaaand the Aquis is now about to make its second appearance in my watchbox in as many years. I didn't even know the gradient blue variant existed until I tried it on, but as soon as I did I knew I wasn't leaving without it.
