    Bronze Aquis... would that interest you?

    The brashear 65 looks really interesting, but the Aquis series has a very distinctive design too - with plenty of 'nautical' style elements (i.e. spheroid and bulbous shapes).
    If Oris were to make a bronze version of an Aquis, would you be interested in that?

    One thing I noticed recently while searching for a bronze watch is, nobody seems to make a bronze watch on a bracelet.

    Since the Oris Aquis has an integrated bracelet, would they make it in bronze too? Or would you just have to keep it on stock, proprietary rubber?

    There's a reason why manufacturers steer away from bronze bracelets (I just can't recall what it is exactly) but I don't think a bronze Aquis would look good on rubber which would entail Oris delving into their leather archive to make a strap for it.

    A bronze Aquis wouldn't interest me at all. You certainly could not have a bronze bracelet, as bronze leaves coloured residue on the skin (hence why bronze watches have case backs out of a different material).

    That's it! I knew someone would remember why there were no bronze bracelets before I did.

    Yeah. Good point, the bracelet is a problem. I thought it could work with rubber straps, as long as they got the right colour(s)...

    Bronze watches look great on brown leather IMO so even if Oris didn't make such a thing for a bronze Aquis it would be worth going custom.

    I would definitely buy one. I like the Brasher 65. But I wear my aquis a lot. And I have been wanting a bronze watch. A bronze aquis would fit the bill

    I would be interested if they make leather straps for aquis.

    I don't think Bronze would add much to the watch.
    High capacity is not a substitute for good marksmanship.
