Oris Bestows Its Aquis Depth Gauge Dive Watch With A Trio Of Key Updates

May 5, 2021

Category: Gear

Widely referred to as “the watch with a hole,” Oris’ Aquis Depth Gauge is a patented system that intentionally allows water to enter the watch via a cutout in the sapphire at the 12 o’clock position that feeds into a channel milled around the outer edge of the crystal — creating a watermark that corresponds with a yellow-dialed gauge on the watch’s dial. And Oris is now building off of this concept with a new and improved version of the dive watch that upgrades a trio of key areas.

On top of a new milling process for the water channel and being gifted a new meters-to-feet conversion chart on its case-back that’s now always set at 90-degrees to the 12 o’clock position, the updated version of the Swiss diver also boasts Oris’ new patented Quick Strap Change system, allowing owners to easily swap out the watch’s included metal link and rubber bracelets. Built around a 45.8mm stainless steel case and powered by an Oris 733 automatic movement with a 38-hour power reserve, the new Aquis Depth Gauge also sports a black dial with Superluminova BG W9-coated hands and indices, a 6 o’clock date window, a rotating bezel, and a knurled crown. Sold in a special waterproof presentation box, the Oris Aquis Depth Gauge is available now with pricing set at $4,100.
