When you have the concept of a rugged and functional dive watch in mind, with great quality and for a relatively affordable price, the lightweight Oris Aquis Date replica watch has to be on your wish-list. No debate, this affordable Oris replica watch is good for what it has been designed for – and it’s also a pleasant watch on a daily basis.
These new 2016 Oris replica watch feature a 43mm stainless case, with brushed and polished surfaces, a ceramic bezel insert and with a choice of three strap and bracelet options; yellow/orange rubber, black rubber or a stainless steel metal bracelet. The rubber straps are equipped with the Oris-developed quick-adjust, sliding-sledge folding clasp that can be adjusted for length without ever having to remove the watch from the wrist – something practical when having a diving suit.
Underwater, the notion of color has to be seen on a completely different level. For instance, red, which is a bright and highly visible color on earth, totally disappear when underwater, and at just 5m down to the sea. On the other hand, some other colors, like blue for instance, remain highly visible, even at 200m. Aware of this issue, the best Oris Aquis Date replica watch looked at how they could make a diver’s watch as legible and therefore as safe as possible when at depth. They turned to research by John Adolfson and Thomas Berghage, who reported in their medical volume Perception and Performance Under Water that the most visible colours underwater are yellow and orange.
No more suspense, you have the main raison d’etre of these two new editions of the solid, reliable and functional Oris Aquis Date replica watch. On both new Oris Aquis Date models, the minutes scale printed on the inside of the sapphire crystal, the zero marker triangle on the timer scale bezel and the central seconds hand have been coloured either yellow or orange. All of these 3 parts of the dial are crucial when diving and highlighting them will improve underwater safety.
