    Comparable Bracelet to the Aquis Date Diver

    Hello all. I am preparing for my first watch purchase that is more than $75-$100. I have fallen in love with the Oris Aquis Date Diver 40mm for many reasons. One of the main reasons is because of the quality of the SS bracelet on a watch in the price range of $1k. As most know, this model has been discontinued by Oris, so I'm having trouble putting my hands on one. So, my question is are there any divers out there with a comparable bracelet in the $1k range?

    Thanks for the help!

    Carter

    Carter, I don't know your wrist size but whatever it is try the 43mm on at an authorised dealer as the realms of WISdom are littered with people who bought the 40mm Aquis and found it too small as Oris divers only have short lugs so wear small.

    I have kicked that idea around. Unfortunately, I have no authorized dealers within a 100 mile radius of me! My wrist size is about 6.75. Thank you for the help! I greatly appreciate it!

    Here's a 43mm on my almost 7 inch wrist. You will like the 43mm ten times better than the small 40mm. Oris wears small like he said. You won't find a better made bracelet on the market than the Aquis line.

    I have a 7" wrist and the 43mm Aquis Diver Date fits very comfortably on it. My wrist, though, is flat. I can see where the watch would not fit as well on a 7" wrist that was round instead of flat. I just purchased a 43mm blue Aquis Date from a forum member who has it sized for his 6.75" inch wrist. He sold it to me only because he has an Omega incoming.

    Here's a 46mm on my almost 7 inch wrist. I actually highly prefer the 46mm Aquis over my 43mm Aquis in a heartbeat. I actually have my 43mm Aquis Diver for sale now because I love how the 46mm wears. My wrist is barely a 7 inch but the 46mm wears much like a 45mm. The 43mm wears like a 42mm. I like a larger watch and I've found that my still basically new Aquis 43mm isn't being worn at all now since I got the 46mm. OP, you will like the 43mm. It does not wear too large and is a good solid size. My wrist used to be 6 3/4 before I shattered it with my competitive tennis. I had a titanium plate installed in my wrist making it become a 7 inch now. Even when I was 6 3/4s I wore 45mm watches so 43mm will suit you well man.

    Oris' website shows 40mm Aquis models, references:

    01 733 7676 4156-07 8 21 10P
    01 733 7676 4156-07 4 21 31

    Personally I would either go up to the 43mm Aquis, or select from one of the other Oris collections (such as the Artelier range) if I wanted a 40mm Oris.

    Oris' bracelets are known as some of the best in the business.

    The 43mm Aquis fits my 6.75" wrist just fine. If you're really set on a smaller watch look at the 38mm Chris Ward C60 Pro 600.

    I find the bracelet on my Oris Classic actually more comfortable than my Aquis, possibly because it has 7 links across allowing for more movement as compared to the Aquis' 3.

    It also might be because the Classic is lighter than my Aquis (my Aquis is a steel rather than titanium model), and because my Aquis bracelet is sized slightly looser than the Classic.

    Either way, I love both bracelets!

    Not sure what you do for a living, but I'm in the banking business, so I wear a button up every day. Does the 43mm fit well under the cuff of a button up?
