    Divers 65 or Aquis or both ?

    I've had a Oris Divers 65 in for review. For those that don't know I run the channel on Youtube The Watch Lounge. My buddy Sam was kind enough to lend one in and I loved it in the time I had it in . He leant the blue dial. I'm considering the green dial as that's the one I like best and have way to many blue dials. But have never had any experience with an aquis . Always wanted to try one out . Those with experience with both what would you recommend? I'm considering getting both at some point. I love the looks of the Aquis as I love tool divers. But not being able to change out straps would kill me unless it's a really comfortable strap . I always liked how light the divers 65 wore as well . Any input ? Thanks for looking Chris .

    Both the Aquis and 42mm 65 sit happily side by side in my case. Beautiful and complementary. Can’t recommend either highly enough. Doesn’t help your dilemma but (cost aside) they are very unique and don’t need to be mutually exclusive (ie. not like simply having multiple colorways of otherwise the same watch).

    Yes this is not a cheap hobby lol, it's worst when you have a Youtube channel and access to multiple watches lol. I've tried consolodating the collection but it's impossible, just given in to the madness of collecting.

    If the Aquis was to follow I think I’d get the 65 first. Oh, BTW, both the Aquis bracelets and rubber are spectacularly comfortable.

    Divers 65 40mm: Probably the watch I wear most often. It is slimmer, super versatile and looks good on many straps.
    TT1 (precursor to Aquis): Well built and extremely comfortable, but for some reason I never wear it.

    I'm in this situation. Got a black oris 65 40mm this week and I'm looking to get a 39.5 green aquis on rubber, so maybe both is the right answer.

    The Aquis bracelet is super comfortable, and I just prefer the overall look of it over the 65. It's an Oris classic IMO.
