Earlier this year, Oris announced the next generation Aquis and introduced a series of time and date models. With its potent combination of quality, performance and value, the new version of the independent Swiss company’s diver’s watch was an immediate success. Now, Oris is adding a small seconds version to the collection.
The advantage of placing the small, or running seconds at 9 o’clock on the dial is that it isolates the watch’s minutes hand, the most important hand to divers as they time their dives. During a dive, divers align the minutes hand with the minute scale on the watch’s uni-directional rotating bezel, enabling them to keep track of remaining dive time safely and securely. Oris works closely with the diving community and developed the movement with small second at 9 o’clock in-house in response to its feedback.
