    A stunning watch; I love the blue bezel and dial combination. And it supports a good cause too, the Reef Restoration Foundation.

    The dial colour is just out of this world. Oris really scored big with this one.

    That looks great! Congratulations!! What's the back like? What's the best and worst thing about it? :) If you have got yours in Australia, I am assuming they will reach the US soon.

    How’s the size of the barrier reef? I’m torn between these 2 watches. The clean ocean looks boring besides the gbr but the size is better.

    Here you go.

    What I love about it:

    The dial colour, it changes with the lighting. In a dark room with very warm toned ambient light, you can even see a bit of green oozing out of the supposedly blue dial. It is reminiscent of the ocean surface from a deep sea diverís point of view when looking up.

    The bezel is very interestingly coloured as well. Itís a tone of dark blue but highly reflective as opposed to just plain glossy. Under certain lighting condition it may even appears to be a bit gray. It works really well with the dial colour in which the centre of the watch has the lightest hue of blue and gradually get darker going towards the perimeter of the watch.

    I used to own a 43mm pre-facelift Aquis and I have to say the bezel action has seen improvement over the years. The clicks are a lot smoother compared to my old Aquis which felt a bit rough with noticeably more frictions between clicks.

    The weight of the watch on bracelet is just on the sweet spot. My old 43mm Aquis could feel quite heavy after a few hours but this 39.5mm feels just a tad lighter than my Rolex GMT Master II, making it a delight to have on the wrist. Size wise I was going through a bit of shock initially seeing how small it looked on my wrist from the first glance. But I have been used to wear watches with bigger cases/lugs like my aforementioned Rolex Maxi-case GMT Master, Seiko Mini-Turtle and Orisí own Diver 65. Once my eyes adjusted after a few hour of wearing it and looking at myself in the mirror it felt right at home. For a guy with puny 6.25Ē wrist, I can certainly don the GBRIII but itíll feel more like a weekend casual watch. With the 39.5mm case and a very clean and simple dial design, I feel I can dress the Clean Ocean up for many other much more formal occasions.

    There really isnít anything I dislike
    About this watch. Just a few concerns like polished surfaces, lack of more than 3 clasp fine adjustment holes but Iím aware theyíre all just part of the package. No major complaints here.
