What's my wrist-wear choice for today?
My Flavor Of The Day
For my Wednesday WOTD, my wrist-wear of choice is the Oris Aquis, Great Barrier Reef Diver, Limited Edition II. I don't think any color screams Springtime more than the color Yellow, and there's plenty of sunny warmth in this Oris Aquis Diver.
Oris does the dive watch genre so well, it's easy to forget that the brand really cut their teeth, and has received most of its brand recognition among the watch collecting sect, through their racing watches. And oh by the way, the Oris Pilot watches aren't too shabby either. This particular Great Barrier Reef series represents a collaboration between Oris and the Australian Marine Conservation Society, to promote awareness and conservation efforts of the Australian coral reef systems, with a portion of the proceeds going towards that effort.
Outside of the amazing blue, yellow, and black tones used within the configuration of this timepiece, giving it a striking appearance, the main aspect of this timepiece that captivated me, is the rather unconventional day / date display; a very unique feature that sets this timepiece apart from your everyday, run-of-the-mill, dive watch.
Pairing this beautiful Oris Aquis diver, with a color-matched, custom beaded bracelet, crafted by Beads By Gonzo. There's nothing mellow about this combination of yellow!
