Today marked the beginning of the “Geneva Watch Days” which has become one of the most important events in the horology industry. We’ll be following up on various releases, since many of the most important brands are in attendance. Among those is Oris with a new triple release in the form of the smaller “Oris Aquis Date” model. This is a technical diver watch capable of reaching the same deep depths as its larger diameter options.The 36.5mm multi-piece case is made of stainless-steel with brushed casebands and polished accents. Mounted to the case is a unidirectional rotating bezel with stainless-steel insert. It has been engraved with a 60-minute diving scale in relief to assist divers with immersion times; although it can be easily used for other practical countdowns.On the flip-side is a solid steel caseback that assures its capability of reaching diver standard depths in real world scenarios. The case size and pink dial option may suggest these watches are intended for a female audience, but they’ve been constructed with the same high quality standards found in larger wrists options.It comes equipped with a stainless-steel screw-in crown that is protected by crown guards with exposed screws. Topped by a double domed sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating. Water-resistance can reach up to 300 meters (984 feet). Time is exhibited on either a blue, green or pink mother-of-pearl dial with stainless-steel applied hour index markers, followed by a ring of smaller white printed minute index markers circling around its periphery. Due to the natural opalescence found in the mother-of-pearl material, as light reflects on it we can see various shifts in hue throughout the dial. These dials are very reminiscent of the recent limited edition “Oris Aquis Date New York Harbor”.The thick uneven central stainless-steel hands, the hour index markers and the circle found on the lollipop-style seconds hand, have all been fitted with a luminescent coating for an enhanced legibility. There is also a white date window located at the 6 o’clock position.
