    Wich Aquis i should buy ?

    Hi

    I hesitate between those 3 aquis :


    Attachment 5345770
    Attachment 5345778
    Attachment 5345786

    I can't see any of them on a shop, and i don't want to do a bad choice. Tha'ts why i'm asking you which one would you recommend to me ?

    Don't hesitate to post wrist shots !

    And one last question : does anyone ever bought a oris bracelet alone ? How much it costs for the rubber strap ? For the stainless steel ?

    Thanks

    I saw the orange marker model and it just wasn't as striking as the white marker model. I haven't seen the tungsten model in person.

    I don't like the one with the orange markers either. I haven't seen the Tungsten model in person, but it does look nice from the photos... so for me it would be that or the black one.

    I initially liked the orange markers but feel I might tire of them faster. I'd go White markers for the long run.

    John, I'd go for the black face, white markers. I have one with both the bracelet and rubber strap ands it's an incredibly versatile piece. I generally swap out the bracelet in the warmer months. Because of the lug design, you can only use Oris strap/bracelets, but they are really excellent. I've seen the rubber on the Bay for around $200. Don't recall ever looking at the bracelet.

    I like the Orange markers. That's the one I'm looking to buy myself.

    It depends on what you own and what you need the watch to do. Black is the most versatile. The grey tungsten version is also attractive, but a bit more utilitarian. Always buy on the bracelet. Straps are much cheaper to buy later than vice versa.

    Of the 3 you're asking about, I prefer the tungsten bezel / white markers combo. I've seen this one in person and it's striking.

    I own the classic blue, and love it, but my new favorite Aquis color scheme is the sunray blue dial with black bezel.
