Can you guys that own Oris Aquis please do me a huge favor and check yours to let me know if this bezel "issue" I am having is normal? It's driving me nuts thinking my watch maybe defective. I have a Great Barrier Reef III. This is my first Oris and compared to my other divers, the bezel feels pretty stiff.
I noticed that if I try to turn the bezel while holding the 12 and 6 o'clock with thumb and index finger, and I apply even the slightest down pressure on the 12 as I try to turn, it gets hard or very hard to turn the bezel.
If I turn by holding 2 and 8, 3 and 9, or any other location except the 12 it's fine. It's still stiff, but I think that's normal.
There's no clockwise/backwards play on the bezel so that's good, but there is a slight play up and down with a faint click, on the 12 o'clock part of the bezel when pressed. None in any other position.
I don't know if the bezel has ball bearings, springs or whatever, but I'm thinking maybe at the 12 o'clock by pressing down its dragging against the case and making it hard to turn?
...If that's the case, should downward presses on any part of the bezel cause this problem and not just on the 12???
Thanks for the help!
