At Watches And Wonders 2024, Oris unveiled the next generation of their iconic Aquis collection, and they absolutely nailed it. The new Aquis Date lineup is a true celebration of Oris' independent spirit and their commitment to contemporary refined luxury.

The star of the show is undoubtedly the Aquis Date Calibre 400 43.50mm. Powered by Oris' game-changing in-house five-day automatic movement, this flagship model is a technical tour de force. But it's not just about the mechanics – Oris has meticulously refined every aspect of the design to deliver a watch that oozes desirability.

The sculpted lugs and crown protection have been reworked, giving the Aquis Date a more elegant and balanced silhouette. The bezel and ceramic insert have been subtly reproportioned, while the dial features polished shield-shaped applied hour markers and bespoke Alpha-style hands. Even the date wheel has been color-matched to the dial for a seamless, cohesive look.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Oris has also introduced two groundbreaking innovations: the Oris-patented Quick Strap Change system and the Oris-patented quick adjust clasp system. The former allows for easy strap changes, while the latter enables on-the-fly bracelet adjustments without tools – a game-changer for active watch enthusiasts.

But Oris hasn't forgotten their commitment to sustainability. The Aquis Date Upcycle models feature dials made from recycled PET plastic, serving as a colorful reminder of the brand's "Change for the Better" program. And let's not forget the radical new Oris Sustainable Watch Box, which reduces plastic consumption and shipping emissions by a staggering amount.

Oris has truly thought of everything with the new Aquis Date collection. From the bespoke 36.50mm variant designed with a more glamorous aesthetic for women, to the choice of the high-quality Calibre 733 Swiss Made automatic for those seeking a more accessible price point, there's something for everyone.
