    New Oris Aquis Date 40mm

    Finally getting my Oris today and im more than excited . as i had a wait to collect been on this forum for a while and fell in love with the watch BUT i had my reservations or hesitation on what variant to get

    The 43 MM variant has the color options but the band seemed a bit chunky n it bothered me

    The 40 MM variants came in less colors BUT the size seemed perfect even with the thinner bracelet. but was much harder to find than the 43 MM

    my search brought me to a thread on WUS where i saw a 40 MM for sale slightly used on Rubber with a brand new metal bracelet and i sent a PM and and secured the transaction

    now this was earlier this month but because of where i live i had it shipped to florida where it stayed until my friend could carry it home and today i will lay my eye's on it and i can hardly wait. I will wear it and provide my honest review on it i hope somebody out there finds my post useful and will help them form a decision

    Re: New Oris Aquis Date 40mm

    Finally have it on

    First Impressions

    I LOVE it it was love at first sight . but ill admit i thought to myself it does look a little small and the buckle and strap is rather thin, but when i tried it on and felt how comfortable it was my mind was soothed it is easily the most comfortable rubber strap ive ever worn, when i switch to the metal bracelet i will also review that


    the lume is decent

    build quality feels excellent

    the wind on the movement is positive and sturdy

    now there is one part that i wasn't too pleased with and it was the bezel. for a watch that seems to have such a high build quality the bezel is sort of a let down. Now this doesn't mean that its bad i just feel that it isn't of same quality with the rest of the watch.

    the issue i have with it is it doesn't feel extremely sturdy but it may be just in my mind, and for a dive watch the bezel doesn't feel like one that could be turned if your hand was in any way wet which to me is somewhat of a let down


    anyways some pics were taken when it came i will upload them in my next post and when i get it on the braceleti will give a next impression

    Some folk have complained that the 40mm was too small for them but it looks just great on your wrist. Congratulations.

    thanks man..i wont lie it does wear on the small size but i have a 6.5 inch wrist and it its very comparable to my 41 mm tag..i had a seiko skx b4 and a orient makon it honestly feels like a mixture of both the case size is very much like the orient but the tapered bracelet is very much like the jubilee on the skx
