This watch from the ProPilot collection is equipped with a complication very useful for pilots: A second time zone. In addition, the Oris movement 748 features also a small second and an enlarged date.
For the first time, the ceramic bezel insert on Oris’s high-performance Aquis GMT diver’s watch is laser-engraved with a 24-hour time scale. This means that the watch can display the time in three time zones simultaneously – one via the central hands; a second via the additional GMT central hand; and a third by aligning the bezel with the central hour hand. The rugged stainless steel watch’s features include crown protection, an extending safety clasp, and water resistance to 30 bar (300 metres).
Known affectionately as ‘the watch with a hole’, the Aquis Depth Gauge uses the scientific principles of the Boyle-Mariotte Law to create a gauge that clearly measures depth during a dive. The patented system works by allowing water through a hole cutint o the sapphire crystal at 12 o’clock and into a channel milled around the outer edge of the crystal. This creates a watermark that corresponds to a gauge clearly indicated in yellow on the dial.
The new model captures and refines the spirit and functional ity of the original, delivering even higher performance when it really matters deep below the ocean surface.
The Oris Aquis Date Relief is a high-performance diver’s watch inspired by Oris’s quest to raise awareness of the importance of water. Its dial colour reflects the colour of stormy seas, and it features a new bezel design with a minutes scale in relief. Oris Aquis, 43.50 mm, 1.713 inches, Stainless steel.
