Oris Aquis Depth Gauge Chronograph

Back in 2013, the Oris Aquis Depth Gauge became the first mechanical watch to measure depth without any moving parts. But the new version of this timepiece is even better, coming in a stainless steel case, measuring 48 mm and being packed with a lot of interesting features.

The bezel of the new Oris Aquis Depth Gauge Chronograph features a ceramic inlay that’s water resistant to 500 meters. The sapphire crystal, double domed glass, features antireflective coating on both sides and a milled channel that allows water into it as part of the depth gauge function.

This rugged watch features a yellow meter scale which allows users to find out how deep underwater they are, while the timekeeping mechanism is powered by a Swiss automatic Oris caliber 774 (base Sellita W500) movement, which includes 25 jewels, 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 48 hours.

A black rubber strap with an Oris-developed safety anchor and quick adjustment will make sure this timepiece stays on your wrist all the time, after it arriving to your place in a special waterproof case with an additional metal bracelet and strapchange tools. If you like this watch that’s just perfect for underwater exploration, it will set you back 4,900 Swiss Francs.
