Creating a watch that immediately feels as though it has always been around, Oris has made the move to add a GMT feature to their 43.5mm Aquis dive watch. With a steely blue metallic dial and yellow GMT accents, the new Aquis GMT Date uses a second time zone display that slides in nicely next to the execution of radial date displays on watches like the Aquis Source of Life LE or the new Aquis Great Barrier Reef Limited Edition III.*
On a full steel bracelet or either a black or dark blue rubber strap, the Aquis GMT Date uses an Oris-modified Sellita SW 330-1 with a date display at three and a 24-hour independent GMT hand. Functionality is enhanced with a lovely ceramic-clad 24-hour bezel, which allows for the tracking of an additional time zone against that of the GMT hand, which has its own hour track on the dial. Priced at $2,500 on the rubber and $2,700 on the bracelet, all of these elements come together to form what is likely my favorite Aquis models to date and one that I would love to take diving somewhere very far away from home.*
