Oris has been creating high-quality timepieces for over a century, and the new Aquis Chronograph is a testament to their experience and expertise. The impressive diver features a formidable stainless steel case that measures 45.5mm with a rotating divers bezel that is easy to grip and moves smoothly to set dive times.
