    New Aquis Owner, Almost!

    I purchased my first Swiss automatic today, an Oris Aquis Date, black version. Bought at an AD in the Toronto area but not in stock so I have to wait about 4 agonizing weeks! My collection so far consists of three Citizen Signature models which I truly love. Have felt a need to have a Swiss automatic though and felt the Aquis Date will be a pretty versatile piece to have in the rotation.

    The more I read about this brand the more I like! I can see this being a great conversation piece explaining Oris as one of the last small independent Swiss watch makers.

    As soon as this beauty arrives I'll get some pictures up. Going to be a long wait though!

    Excellent choice sir! I'll be getting mine soon.

    What diameter did you go with? 36, 40 or 44mm?
    I know nothing about watches, just what I like.

    The Aquis is worth waiting for but the time between ordering a watch and it arriving at the AD seems to crawl.

    Went with the Aquis Date, 43mm. 01 733 7653 4154-07 8 26 01PEB - Oris Aquis Date - Oris Aquis - Diving - Collection - Oris - Purely mechanical Swiss watches.

    Very classic looking watch and as I've read by others on here it's truly it's own, not a homage to the Sub.

    Just bought mine from a grey 2 weeks ago, same color and size as yours. It's a great watch.I'm currently shopping for my second Oris.

    I finally picked up my new Oris Aquis Date 43mm yesterday! She is all sized up and on my wrist! Pictures will follow!

    My initial thoughts; outstanding! This piece is incredibly comfortable on the wrist. The build quality is exceptional, clasp and release are perfect! Love the exhibition case back and the signature red rotor. I could not be more impressed or pleased, great purchase!

    I said that the Aquis was worth the wait.
