    New design of Aquis

    Hi everyone,

    I found this new design of one of the most popular models of Oris on their website, how do you guys like this?:

    I have to admit I have to get used to the new hands. But all in all it's great.

    Cheers
    Wolfgang

    Oh nice I like those hands! I am also liking the leather strap option!

    LOVE the new design, but I wish they would bring back the 40mm models. 43.5 is way too big for my wrist.

    hands... nice but I'm not sure as nice as the last set. Love the leather... would love to add one for my Aquis but its the 46mm version. Hope they come out with a leather option for that size.

    Oris fan here, I have a couple including an Aquis. My initial thoughts...

    I like the case, bezel, and bracelet......the hands are off-putting to me. The hour hand appears stubby, and the length of the minute hand does not make sense. It may be the angles, but it does appear to reach *just too* the markers or to the far end of the markers. Also, the length/thickness difference in the hands make it look clunky.

    It may be the angles, and it may grow on me. Initial thoughts are not exciting though.

    Regrettably I prefer the older model as well. The minute markers are less generous with the lume as it seems, and in my opinion the hands on the previous Aquis were somewhat more sleek. This is a more sporty watch, and really the thing I praise about the previous model is it doesn't look to me as hardcore sport as say Tag.

    Winner. Excluding the goofy looking leather strap.

    The shape of the end of the hands matching the shape of the end of the markers unites this design better than the previous version. Seems to be a trend to be more cohesive aesthetically with Swiss brands lately.

    I think those new hands are a huge improvement. I've always hated the old, too small, hands.

    Edit: Indices look larger too. Now the proportions of the dial are ok.

    Agreed, don't like the hands. The old ones look better.
