    Blue vs "Gradient" Blue Oris Aquis Diver... HELP!

    I've decided that I want to purchase an Aquis diver but I'm having a tough time deciding between the Blue Aquis Diver or the Gradient blue with the sunburst dial. Hoping you guys would help me in the decision. I want a versatile watch that can be worn casually to the beach and in the office setting. Appreciate any feedback especially if any of you have experience with these models. Thanks!

    Blue Aquis Diver (I think it tends to lean on the sportier side)

    Blue Gradient/Sunburst Dial (looks dressier IMHO)

    Blue Gradient/Sunburst Dial without question. While it comes down to personal preference, I love the contrast between the black bezel and blue dial on the sunburst model. It also opens up more options when it comes to straps. Do yourself a favor, though. Get it on rubber. The Oris rubber strap is mind blowingly amazing and can still pull off a dressier look. Plus, no desk diving swirlies ;)

    I know just what you're going through as the introduction of the latest blue has caused me no end of soul searching. Since getting both isn't an option for me (I assume it's the same for you) I came down in favour of tha original all blue for the simple reason that I'd already got a clutch of Oris watches witch black bezels. If I'm honest the black bezel will allow the new boy to mix it up a bit more.

    Another vote for gradient blue. I hear the dial color on all blue Aquis is dull grey-ish blue unlike the new shimmering and dazzling sunburst blue dial.

    I just picked up a gradient blue one and love it. I will say that if often times appears to have a black dial, until the light hits it and you then see the really deep blue colors. To me, that's a plus, but for those looking for a bright blue watch, it would be a negative I suppose.

    I'll go with the above - definitely the blue gradient/sunburst dial. It looks much more classy.

    I had the Blue Aquis and the dial looks gray in most light. I loved what I referred to as a very unique "deep sea" shade of blue on the bezel but the dial looks mostly gRay which eventually caused it to fall out of favor with me.

    I wonder how the sunburst blue dial would look with the glossy blue dial from the older all-blue Aquis. Does anyone have enough Photoshop skills to mock one up?
