The Oris Aquis is the foundation of the brand; a vigorous, straightforward, professional and very much situated diver’s watch that impeccably summarizes the brand’s reasoning. Accessible in numerous variants, with different complications (date, day-date, little seconds, chronograph, pointer-date or controller), shockingly this watch has never been outfitted with a double time work. Issue addressed at Baselworld 2019, with the new Oris Aquis GMT Date.
This new GMT release of the Aquis is a long way from a transformation, as it imparts a large portion of its attributes to other models of the assortment. Be that as it may, not progressive doesn’t mean drained of interest. It is amazing, yet until the present time, the Aquis had never highlighted a double time/traveller’s/GMT complication. Truly, before, there was a watch called the Diver GMT, however this was the archetype of the Aquis. For the 2019 version of the Basel observe reasonable, Oris prepares its celebrated diver’s watch with perhaps the most valuable regular complications – alright, perhaps not when plunging, but rather the vast majority of us aren’t really utilizing these watches as jumping instruments anyway.
Based on the notable Aquis Date model – which has been renovated as of late – the new GMT variant holds all the amazing components of the time-and-date. Its case, for example, actually quantifies 43.50mm in distance across, holds its unique shape with coordinated carries and productive securities just as the 300m water-obstruction. It will be accessible with a selection of ties: earthy colored leather, blue elastic, dark elastic or hardened steel wristband, all outfitted with broadening collapsing fastens for wearing over a wetsuit.
What changes with the Oris Aquis GMT Date is the presentation and the bezel, which currently consolidates the sign of three time regions (similarly as a Rolex GMT-Master II or a Tudor Black Bay GMT ). This implies focal hour and moment hands interestingly zone and an extra yellow-tipped hand for the subsequent time region. The last is perused on an inside recessed track. At last, the Oris Aquis GMT Date includes a 24-hour, bidirectional bezel to peruse the third time zone.
For the occasion, the dial comes with a sunburst blue foundation with rhodium-plated hands and applied records, while the bezel is dark and cleaned. We can envision this watch will in the end be offered in dark or green.
Powering the Oris Aquis GMT Date is the type 798, in light of a Sellita SW 330-1. This programmed, reevaluated development has a common ETA engineering, 38 hours of force hold beating at 4Hz. As consistently with such developments, it is a basic GMT complication, as the extra time region is set by one-hour increases, and not the neighborhood time (similarly as with a Rolex GMT for example). The development and its regular red rotor are noticeable through a sapphire caseback.
The Oris Aquis GMT Date (ref. 01 798 7754 4135) will be accessible as of April 2019 at retailers and official shops, at a cost of CHF 2,600. More subtleties at oris.ch .
