Reluctantly parting with this beauty. I like it a lot, but have to free up some funds to pursue a few interesting options. The watch is mint and has only been worn 5-7 times.

It is certainly one of the most interesting options in the dive watch universe that is mostly populated by derivative designs of a few legendary models. A chunky, but tool-ish profile paired with an integrated bracelet design makes for a unique wearing experience not offered by any other watches I know out there. The striking deep blue sunburst dial, turquoise blue ceramic bezel, and highly polished indices make for a tidy package without sacrificing the utilitarian design. The printing on the dial is thick and crisp, without being obstructive. The size wears incredibly well even on very small wrists that have trouble with most divers. The bracelet tapers beautifully into a comfortable clasp with micro-adjustment.

A separate word about bezel action. Some reviews online I saw mentioned a slight back play on the bezel of the Oris Aquis. However, this specific piece has absolutely no back play. I guess it's a QC issue and I was lucky in this case. I am also linking a video by Hafiz who can more eloquently describe the wearing experience. Worth checking out even if you are not planning to buy for the gorgeous macro videos and very non-biased review:

Asking for what I paid for it: $2000 $1900 $1850 $1800 $1750 PayPal or Zelle net to me. Please reach out for any questions and/or more pictures.

Some noteworthy feature of this LE includes:
  • The unique combo of size and dial color. As far as I know, this dial color and bezel combination is only paired with the pricier in-house caliber and in 41.5 and 43mm sizes
  • The red triangle on the bezel adds a lot of character
  • Closed case back, replaced by a medallion made from recycled plastic. Each medallion is unique, adding some flavor to the ownership experience. The closed caseback works better in a diver anyway, in my opinion.
Condition: Mint w/ box and papers. 2+ years left on warranty
Movement: SW200-1 modified by Oris
Crystal and Caseback: Sapphire front, recycled plastic medallion on caseback
Case: Stainless Steel
Dimensions: 39.5 mm
Dial: Deep Turquoise Blue Sunburst
Strap: Integrated Stainless Steel Bracelet
WR: 300 meters
