    New 40mm Aquis!

    Just picked up my new Tungsten bezel 40mm Aquis! I’m completely stoked!

    Sorry for the bad picture. The dark spot between 12 and 1 is a reflection that I unsuccessfully tried to edit out.

    Nice! This is the first real life photo I've seen. Where you able to directly compare it to the 43mm model before purchasing? I'm anxious to see how the dimensions look. Something about the bracelet lug width looks different to me. Maybe it's just change in size but I'm looking forward to seeing one. Thanks for posting.

    Very nice looking Aquis. I still think that this watch looks best on on a bracelet. If Oris were to make the orange 43mm in 40mm then I would have real problems.

    I also have a blue 43mm Aquis. I haven’t taken any side-by-side pictures yet, but I’ll try to do so tonight or tomorrow. The entire 40mm watch has been scaled down proportionally. The bracelet, lugs, etc are all just a bit smaller. I’d say the watch wears very much like the Rolex Submariner. While the Aquis and Sub are very different in style and appearance, that’s probably the best comparison I can draw.

    This may be the most comfortable watch I own, as the proportions are nearly perfect for my 6.5” wrist!

    When you have time I'd greatly appreciate a comparison photo. Funny you should mention the Sub. I tried on the Sub C non date a few weeks ago with the new IWC Inge (40mm) and preferred the smaller sizes to the 43mm aquis. I'm making another AD visit tomorrow to look at some others and maybe I'll get lucky and a 40mm Aquis will be in stock.

    Looking good! It is absolutely IMPERATIVE that Oris release the Blue Aquis Date in 40mm. It would be soo mine..

    That's a great diver! I like the metallic bezel as it is different than the typical colored bezel offerings. Congrats on your new Aquis!
