Oris has a decent propensity for acquiring limited editions their Aquis line to add to sea protection. This week we got an inquiry from Apostolos, I suppose one of our readers in Greece.

You Asked Us: Will the dial of my Oris Aquis Clipperton fade in brilliant sunlight?

Here’s the original content of Apostolos question:



I as of late purchased an Oris Aquis Clipperton. Its graded blue dial is a genuine euphoria. The inquiry is, is it alright to use in direct daylight routinely, or it will before long fade and lose its fantastic contrast?

Thank you,

The dial producer, obviously, didn’t uncover details of his cycle how he accomplished this astonishing depth in blue, which makes this watch so appealing.

In any case, Mr Ulrich, by expression of his dial maker, affirmed: “there is no motivation to be worried about the possibility that that the shading will fade in brilliant sunlight”. As far as I might be concerned, this data, and straightforwardly from a source this way, would be adequate not to worry.
