New Oris Watches from Geneva Watch Days 2023

Oris AquisPro 4000 and Aquis
A relatively new event on the horological calendar, Geneva Watch Days is in its fourth edition with almost 40 watch brands participating this year. One of these brands – Oris – released a trio of new watches at the event. Let’s get a closer look at what they are. 

Oris AquisPro 4000m Watch

Oris is taking on the big players Rolex and Omega with its latest extreme dive watch. As its name suggests, the Oris AquisPro 4000m is water resistant to an impressive 4,000 meters (13,000 feet) deep. 

This is not a small watch by any means; it measures 49.5mm in diameter, 23.4mm thick, and 55mm lug-to-lug. Plus, the lug width is 26mm. However, Oris opted for lightweight titanium for the beefy case construction and rubber for the strap to keep things as light as possible.

Designed in collaboration with professional divers, the Oris-patented Rotating Safety System bezel locks it in place to avoid any accidental turning. It features a blue ceramic bezel insert with the customary 60-minute timing scale. There’s also a security folding clasp extension system to allow strap adjustments while the watch is on the wrist. The blue gradient dial is beautifully executed with a wave pattern, and it’s home to a date window at 6 o’clock.

Sitting underneath the screw-down titanium caseback is Oris’ in-house Caliber 400 automatic movement, supplying the watch with 120 hours of power reserve. 

The price of the new Oris AquisPro 4000m is $6,200, which is certainly on the higher end of the brand’s price spectrum. However, this is a highly technical watch made for a niche audience – and it’s still much more affordable than similar offerings such as the Rolex Deepsea and Omega Planet Ocean 6000M. 

Oris X Bracenet Aquis Date Watches

Oris presented more new diving watch models at Geneva Watch Days 2023 with the release of the Oris x Bracenet Aquis Date watches. 

Available in two sizes, these divers are furnished with upcycled dials made from nets polluting our oceans and seas. Bracenet, which was founded by Benjamin Wenke and Madeleine von Hohenthal in 2015 to make accessories from recovered “ghost nets” (discarded nets that still float around our waters creating chaos for marine life), made the Oris dials by gently warming net offcuts. The effect is a beautifully swirly dial that mixes blue, green, and white – and due to the nature of the production, no two dials are identical.

The larger of the two models sports a 43.5mm case while the smaller one measures 36.5mm. Both cases are made in stainless steel, as are the bezels and bracelets. Similar to other Aquis Date diving watches, these Oris x Bracenet editions are water-resistant to 300 meters. 

Oris chose the Sellita Caliber SW200-1-based Caliber 733 automatic movement to power the watches, which is perhaps a bit of a letdown. Yet, this was likely done to keep the price of the watches more accessible than if it had the in-house Caliber 400 instead (which would no doubt cost over $1,000 extra). Both versions of the Oris x Bracenet Aquis Date are priced at $2,600 and available immediately. 

Oris Artelier S Watches

Oris added a duo of new models to its Arterlier collection in the form of the pared-down Arterlier S watches. Simplicity is the name of the game here with minimalist time-only dials, smooth 38mm steel cases, and understated leather straps. Oris offers two versions – one with a black dial and matching black strap and the other with a forest green dial and brown strap.

The minute and hour markers are small and positioned on the periphery of the dial so as to not take up too much space. The hands are super slim but still benefit from a touch of SuperLuminova for low-light legibility. A domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating shields the dial while a mineral glass window on the caseback offers a view of Caliber 733 inside with its signature red rotor inside the watch. 

The price of these new Oris Artelier S Watch is $2,200, available for purchase right now. 

Final Thoughts

With its highly engineered technical diver, sustainability-focused dive watches, and understated dress watches, Oris’ new releases at Geneva Watch Days 2023 are solid additions to the brand’s current lineup.
