It's Back! - Oris Aquis 39.5mm Review - Is It Still The Best Swiss Automatic Dive Watch Under $2000?

Long time Gentry members will know of my special love affair with the Oris Aquis dive watch. After owning several of them, sadly they ultimately proved too big despite the highly original and lovable design. Regrettably I sold my smaller 40mm version not knowing that particular medium version of the now dated previous line was very difficult to replace. However, the Aquis will always hold a very special place in my heart, as it opened a gateway into the world of more affordable Swiss brands that I was previously unaware of. It was a refreshing change from the tried and tested go-to dive watch options from Omega, Rolex, and entry level Seiko. What impressed me was the quality, the luxurious finishing, unpretentious and unique style, but above all the fun it provided for the price. After years of waiting in vain for a return to a smaller scale, Oris have finally come to their senses and released a more classic 39.5mm sized version that enables the Aquis to now be enjoyed by a wider audience. But what has changed apart from the size? Today I try out and review this 2018 release. The reference 01 733 7732 4124 MB is perhaps the a most quintessential version of the Aquis including a date and black dial. However, the question remains - is it still king of the entry level automatic dive watches from $1000 to $2000?
