What's My Wrist-Wear Choice for Today?

My Flavor of the Day

Oris is a brand that traces its watchmaking lineage back to 1904. Today the brand is known for creating well-designed tool watches, truly combining beauty and brawn. The brand is most notable for their dive and racing inspired sport watches.

The Oris Aquis Great Barrier reef is an unabashed sport watch. It gives just enough wrist presence without being being oversized, and has one of the most brilliant blue dials that only reveals itself when light catches it. Even though it has a less-than-traditional read-out for the day, the watch dial remains extremely legible.

I love everything about this watch! Add the splash of yellow / orange around the outer-track of the dial, at zero on the bezel, and the second hand, and you've got an incredible contrast of colors.
