The Aquis is a bread and butter piece for Oris. A famous divers watch with an incredible value quality proportion and feel that are truly affable by a huge crowd. Of the 12 diverse Aquis models (each with a few distinct executions, with an aggregate of 57 including 6 for women), 6 models are assigned as ‘limited edition’. A brief glance in their index learns me that of the 57 diverse Aquis models, 10 watches are limited editions., each around 2000 pieces as it were. That’s about 20.000 limited edition Aquis watches, from their meat and potatoes assortment. There is no official number on the absolute yearly creation of Oris, yet 20.000 watches is significant for them. Is that something terrible? It sells, for starters. What’s more, it additionally offers a brand the chance to a) accomplish something decent with another shading plan or explicit lash and b) uphold a decent cause.
However, a limited edition or unlimited (or limited by creation), it not vital as I would like to think. You either like a watch or you don’t, yet the lone thing that can be irritating about a limited edition is the way that you missed it. The way that it is a limited edition doesn’t impact my judgment about the actual watch truth be told. In any case, and that should be said, if there are (nearly) more limited editions than typical editions, it has neither rhyme nor reason any longer. In any case, with the assessed creation number of Oris (undisclosed, yet I think I have a very smart thought) I am almost certain it isn’t the case.
So, let’s view this Aquis and its motivation. The specficiations of the Aquis are like the ordinary models. A type 733 programmed development, 43mm case distance across and made of tempered steel. Accessible on an elastic lash just as on an uncompromising tempered steel arm band. A decent top to bottom audit on the Aquis can be found here and here .
Oris Source of Life Limited Edition
With this Aquis, Oris needs to carry something to the consideration of consumers (like they did here and here ), yet this time without supporting a particular association or establishment. It is about the source of life, in particular water. This Aquis has an uncommon spotlight on the River Rhine. This river, with a length of 1233KM that begins at the Tomasee (a lake in the Swiss Alps) and finishes in the North Sea. The case back of this Aquis Source of Life limited edition shows the way of the River Rhine. This river additionally runs near the town of Hölstein, where Oris has been situated since 1904. Fun actuality: A close by stream that takes care of into the Rhine is called Orisbach.
Limited to 2343 pieces. That has nothing to do with the length of the river without a doubt, however with the tallness of the lake where the Rhine originates.
The dial of the Oris Source of Life edition is maybe the most exceptional component (or contrast compared to the next Aquis watches), the tone is blue dark and propelled by the new water at the River Rhine’s source. I’m glad that they decide for that tone and not for the shading that it has toward the finish of river before it winds up in the North Sea. Jokes aside, this Oris Aquis is a serious looker on the pictures we got from them. We will most likely see the model (or eventual outcome) in BaselWorld in about fourteen days from now, and try to get some ‘real life’ images.
