Watch of the day

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?


My Flavor Of The Day

Oris, Aquis, Great Barrier Reef, Limited Edition II

It was definitely hard prying the Daily Driver from my wrist, but my Tuesday WOTD, the Oris, Aquis, Great Barrier Reef, Limited Edition II, makes that decision a little less painful. The Aquis is a stunner of a watch, and this photo shows why.


Featuring a deep Blue dial, with Yellow and White contrasts, all framed by a Black ceramic bezel, the Great Barrier Reef, Limited Edition II offers a beautiful wrist presentation, and plenty of POP on the wrist. Adding to the color pop, is the Yellow, rubber strap, which definitely gives this piece a more lively look on the wrist, versus the OEM black, rubber strap.


Outside of the fantastic color scheme, the dial set-up is what initially drew me to this timepiece, which sports a rather unique day / date display; it's different, and I like different.


For my accessorizing choice today, I'm pairing the Aquis with one of my newly acquired, rope bracelets, the Eagle Ray, designed by Dorsal Bracelet Company. Not only do the colors of the Dorsal bracelet complement the Oris perfectly, but this wrist combo represents Wrist-Game for good, as a percentage of sales from the Oris, Great Barrier Reef series, goes toward protecting the Coral Reef system. Additionally, 1 lb. of trash is removed from the beaches and oceans, from the sales of each Dorsal bracelet; look good, do good.
