Oris just released the AquisPro 4000m, a deep diver designed for folks who might be heading down to 4,000 meters. The watch, which comes in a beefy, 23.4mm thick case, runs an Oris Caliber 400 automatic movement and is 49.5mm wide.
From the release:
Oris is delighted to introduce the AquisPro 4000m, the most water-resistant diver’s watch we’ve
ever created with a titanium case that can withstand pressures up to 400 bar (equivalent to 4,000
metres depth). It’s also loaded with Oris-patented technology, including the Rotation Safety System
bezel, designed by Oris in collaboration with professional divers to lock the bezel in place, and our
security folding clasp extension system, which means the strap can be easily adjusted for length
while the watch is being worn.
The rotation safety system is interesting in that it allows you to rotate the bezel only when unlocked, ensuring a passing sea turtle doesn’t nudge you into the red zone. The whole packages is quite extraordinary and the bold blue face and rubber band look great.
I personally love beasts like this even though I haven’t gone any lower than my basement in terms of oceanic depths. How much do you have to pay for the pleasure of this piece? A cool $6,200, placing it in the higher end of Oris’ lineup. That said, it’s definitely drool-worthy.
