Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?


My Flavor Of The Day

Oris, Aquis, Great Barrier Reef, Limited Edition II

For Friday, ending my week on a colorful note, wearing the Oris, Aquis, Great Barrier Reef, Limited Edition II. For me, this timepiece exemplifies the near perfect dive watch. The case design, day / date lay-out, and dial colors make this timepiece a real stand-out on the wrist.


With the literal sea of submariner homages out in the wild, it's difficult for any brand or model to stand-alone, but the GBR II easily accomplishes this by way of it's overall aesthetics.


I've held-on to sporting the yellow strap with this timepiece, for quite sometime. But since Labor day has now passed, and with it Summer, I think it's time to revert back to the Black, OEM strap.


Pairing the Oris today, with an Eagle Ray, rope bracelet, crafted by Dorsal Bracelet Co. A very conservation conscious wrist pairing, as proceeds from the sale of each GBR II, goes towards saving the Australian coral reef system, and 1 lb. of trash is removed from the beaches and oceans, with the purchase of each Dorsal wrist accessory.
