    Oris Aquis Black Dial with Orange Markers -- My favorite Aquis yet.

    This year at Baselworld, Oris introduced several new dive watches. As it has done in the last several years, all of these new releases were in the ProDiver and Aquis part of the line. While I canít speak for Oris as a whole, at Topper, the best selling part of the Aquis line for the past several years has been the 43mm Aquis Date. After all, it is the only ceramic bezel watch in the store that retails for under $2,000, and the matt finish on the bezel is particularly interesting. (The Aquis Date Ceramic retails for $1,650 on strap and $1,850 on bracelet)



    We recently took delivery of a new variation of the 43mm Aquis that I think will be this yearís best selling Oris; a black dial with orange. While it isnít very different from the existing black dial, the introduction of a third color gives the watch a lot of life. The changes are indeed very subtle. The only real difference between the new watch and the existing black dial date Aquis is that the white lume strips on the hands, hour markers on the dial, and circle inside the triangle in the bezel are now all orange. There is still considerable white on the watch as well, as all of the white arabic markers on the bezel are identical to the older Aquis Date. Does the addition of the third color make this the best Aquis 43mm Date yet?


    The new Oris Aquis 43mm with Orange markers (left) is almost identical to the one with white markers (right)



    Like the model with white markers, the ceramic bezel of the new Aquis 43mm features a smooth brushed finish ceramic bezel. In contrast, the blue and green dial versions of the Aquis feature high polish bezels.









    Though only 43mm, the Aquis wears larger than the 44mm TT1 Date model. The Aquis is cylindrical, while the TT1 Diver is probably features a bezel thatís only around 42mm.

    I love it! My blue is fantastic, and I've been thinking about adding a black. I've got three other black divers and just couldn't justify it. I don't have anything with orange... Yet.

    I don't like it. Not sure why, but in the Aquis line the gray Ti with small seconds is my fav :)

    I had planned on adding the orange handed Aquis to my hoard until I saw the DLC Aquis Oris have just launched.

    I would love to see the orange markers on a blue dial. On the black dial, I still prefer the white markers. Overall, not a bad option though.

    I love it. It is just like the small seconds orange and black in the older case style. I will probably pick one up soon...of course from Rob and Topper.

    It's nice...

    Not "TT1 Black & Orange on a wave dial" nice, but still nice.

    Don't like it to be honest, I own blue dial and it's very calm, classic diver. Orange markers are kind of odd with this dial.

    orange markers would rule, if only the bezel also came with orange numbers and markings.
