A dive watch with a chronograph function is not something one comes across every day. But, when done properly, this combination can offer a useful elapsed-time measurement complication in a waterproof package for a true statement timepiece.
This is what Oris has achieved in its Aquis Chronograph. Water-resistant down to 500 meters, the Aquis Chronograph achieves high legibility with a dark blue dial that sports white numerals and indices. The multi-piece stainless steel case measures 45.50 mm and features a unidirectional rotating bezel with black ceramic diver’s inlay. The chronograph itself is easily operated with rounded pushers that respond instantly to applied pressure. With its rubber dive strap, the Aquis Chronograph is a wonderful tool that surpasses expectations both in the water and on land.
