Green Oris Aquis Date Review – On The Wrist Review

Get to know one of the most popular dive watches, the Green Oris Aquis Date. Our hands on review goes in-depth to help you get to know the Green Oris Aquis Date.

Green Oris Aquis Date First Thoughts

As of late, the color green has been ultra popular in the watch world. It’s easy to wear and gives a fun little splash of color. The watch manufacture Oris has always done a great job at developing wrist watches that are fun to wear and have a color combination for everybody. The Oris Aquis date a lone has over 40 different variations to choose from. The one that excites us the most is the Green Oris Aquis Date.

If you’re a traditional white or black dial guy like me, you’ve probably flirted around with the idea of getting a splash of color to the collection. That sparked my interest into getting hands on the the Green Oris Aquis Date to discover what it’s all about and if this could be a watch that makes it into the rotation one day.

Our first impression of the Green Oris Aquis Date didn’t disappoint. The sunburst bright green dial paired with a darker shade of green bezel really captivated our attention. What was most interesting with the Green Oris Aquis Date is that the bezel and dial varied in looks in different lighting conditions. Again, if you’re like me and traditionally stick to the white or black bezels, this was a welcomed surprise.

The weight and size of this watch watch has a presence on the wrist. With the case coming in at 43.5mm and lug to lug width of 50mm, the Green Oris Aquis Date wears somewhat large on my wrist (and I’m not a small guy). The weight was also noticeable, mostly comparing to my Omega Seamaster 300m.

The finishing on this watch is what you’d expect out of a luxury Swiss watch maker. The stainless steel bracelet has brushed center links with finely polished outer links. The sides of the case featured a smoothed brushed finish with the face of the lugs being polished. Overall a very good combination of alternating finishes.

The Green bezel on the Oris Aquis Date was surprising crisp. I say that because in my experience there are not many dive watches in this price point that have a uni-directional rotating bezel of this quality. The coined cuts in the bezel also made it very easy to set with or without hand coverings.

Oris Aquis Date Movement

The movement of the Green Oris Aquis Date is the Oris Calibre 733. This movement is modified from the Sellita SW200-1. Even though the Sellita SW200-1 is a common off the shelf movement, a watch of this caliber should deserve better. Oris knows this as well and that is why they released the new in-house movement Oris Calibre 400. The Calibre 400 has an impressive power reserve of 120 hours and accuracy rating that fits within COSC standards. At the moment the new in-house Calibre 400 is only featured in one model but we hope it’ll soon be rolled out to the entire Oris Aquis Date Collection.

What We Enjoyed about the Green Oris Aquis Date

What we really enjoyed about the Green Oris Aquis Date is that it was fun to wear. If you haven’t tried wearing green but are interested, you may want to explore this watch. There is something to be said about purchasing a tool watch and actually being able to use it as a tool watch. What we mean when we say this is that you can buy a tool watch for 5x the price of the Green Oris Aquis Date but do you really want to put it through the grind of a tool watch? The answer is probably no. At this price point, the Aquis Date provides all the functionality and beauty of a tool watch that makes sense. 

Green Oris Aquis Date Vs. Rolex Submariner Hulk 

It’s no surprise that because of the green dial / green bezel combination that many people compare the Green Oris Aquis Date vs. Rolex Submariner Hulk. Obviously the Rolex Submariner stands atop the dive watch pedestal but if you’re interested in an all green dive watch and can’t get ahold of a Hulk, the Green Oris Aquis Date is a fine alternative.
