Introducing: Oris Aquis Depth Gauge – Return of “The Watch With A Hole”

Oris Aquis Depth Gauge men's mechanical divers watch model 0173377554154-SetMB

The Oris Aquis Depth Gauge Watch is back. Fondly known as “the watch with a hole”, this next generation model delivers even better performance.

The Aquis Depth Gauge is a diver’s watch with a depth gauge function that uses the scientific principles of the Boyle-Mariotte Law to create a gauge that clearly measures depth during a dive. The patented system works by allowing water into the watch through

an opening in the sapphire crystal at 12 o’clock. The water enters into a channel milled around the outer edge of the crystal. This creates a watermark that corresponds to a gauge clearly indicated in yellow on the dial.

The new model captures and refines the spirit and functionality of the original, delivering even higher performance when it really matters deep below the ocean surface.


Three Key Improvements

The new Aquis Depth Gauge has three key improvements:

1. Depth gauge system
In the new watch, the process used to mill the channel into the out er edge of the crystal has been refined so the accuracy and legibility of the gauge are increased.

2. Metres to feet conversion chart
The case back has been re engineered so the metres to feet conversion chart is always set at 90 degrees to the 12 o’clock position. For divers relying on the chart on a regular basis, this will greatly enhance their experience of the watch.

3. Oris’s new patented Quick Strap Change system
Owners can now switch the stainless steel metal bracelet and rubber strap quickly, safely and securely without needing a tool or a visit to a jeweller.
