Oris Aquis 41.5mm
The Oris Aquis 41.5mm (and other sizes) is undoubtedly an extremely popular dive watch, not just within the Oris company, but across the board in the entire watch world, it has become a watch worn by countless watch collectors. It is no surprise considering that Oris is a very popular brand, especially since the early 2000s, and with the Aquis being almost a decade old in sold in over 20 different variations and sizes, there is one for every style and wrist size.
That brings me to today’s review, the Oris Aquis 41.5mm. Before I get into the review, let’s get one thing out of the way, Oris and their sizes are, well, odd. Across the Aquis lineup, you have 36.5mm, 39.5mm, this one at 41.5 and a 43.5, and on it goes. While not a big deal obviously, it is unique to Oris as far as I know, but at least they are consistent with it.
So, this new smaller size, but not the smallest size offered is one that has the watch world is divided about. The 36.5mm is geared more towards females, (of course guys can still wear it) and the 39.5m is your 40mm standard. This 41.5mm though, is a little odd, as it is only 2mm smaller than the 43.5mm that has been the main size for the Aquis for many years. That brings up the question, who is this size for?

I’ve been researching the aquis for a few months now and feel I have an excelled knowledge on all things Aquis. Around months end I plan to buy #01 733773041240782405EB =
43mm all BRUSHED model with black dial on bracelet. I easily understand why it’s such a popular watch…its very close to perfect and it’s my grail watch so obviously I can’t wait to see that baby on my wrist.
I notice it’s great similarity to the Omega seamaster of years ago with the sword hands…the aquis in my mind is running neck and neck with the seamaster..am I right ?
