    Oris Aquis Dilemma (Color)...

    Tough choice between these colors. If you had to choose from one of the three below, which one would you buy based on color alone?

    Black w/ Black Bezel


    Blue Gradient w/ Black Bezel


    Blue w/ Blue Bezel

    I'd go with the Blue with Blue bezel.

    I'm not a fan of gradient/sunburst dials and the blue would stand out a bit more in a sea of black-dialed divers while still remaining classy enough when paired with a suit.

    I would agree with the blue on blue. The gradient burst dial, though, is not all that obvious (i.e. It is more dark blue than anything else).

    I passed on the chance of buying a blue with blue bezel once and came to regret it. Don't make my mistake.

    I think blue on blue is best.

    I never warmed up to the blue on blue. Couldn't be happier with the classic looks of the black on black.

    I don't own any of them, but this would be hard to beat in my opinion.

    I own the gradient blue - and it is fantastic! The sunburst effect is beautiful. I have only had this since New Years - but I just love it - and the color is perfect!Name:  20151230_145317.jpeg

    I have the same in an Aquis date. The thing I love about the gradient blue is that it has a few "personalities"...at times the dial appears black, at other times dark blue, and still at other times the burst of the gradient makes an appearance. Very interesting.
