Titanium watches have many advantages over stainless steel timepieces and those made from precious metals. Oris use these benefits to enhance the beauty and the performance of their wristwatches. By combining cutting edge technology with the very finest materials, the Swiss-based company are able to ensure that precision, reliability and performance are key qualities that are guaranteed with each and every one of their masterpieces. Titanium Oris watches grace the likes of the company’s dive watches. Timepieces like the Aquis watch benefit from having a case crafted from titanium since its lightweight qualities can enhance the wearer’s experience of a comfortable dive, whilst accuracy and legibility is never compromised.
Titanium Oris watches are incredibly sleek and refined. The material exudes a modern allure, working well with an office suite or elegant evening attire. Titanium is also incredibly corrosion-resistant – another reason why Oris chose to craft some of their moat impressive diver watches from this innovative material. A titanium Oris watch can be worn in all extreme weather conditions and makes for the perfect sports watch. Titanium is 30 times stronger than stainless steel, guaranteeing even more protection for the internally fitted automatic movement that lies at the centre of each watch. The movement powering the hands of an Oris watch can thus perform in a stable environment, whilst the case is nearly 50 percent lighter on the wrist.
The properties of a titanium Oris watch make it adequate as an outdoor watch, but its magnificent, lustrous colour which differs slightly from the look of stainless steel, adds to a contemporary demeanour. Black dials, blue dials and silver dials all look elegant and classic against the polished, shimmering tones of a titanium case. Since Oris’ pilot, diver and classic dress watches are renowned for being such good value for money, it goes without saying that a watch made from titanium from Oris is sure to serve its wearer with years and years of companionship on the wrist.
The Oris Aquis Regulateur der Meistertaucher is a watch with hour and minute hands that are not on the same axis. Instead, the hours are displayed in the sub-counter at 3 o’clock whilst the minutes are kept in prime location on the main dial. For a dive watch, this brings a unique yet indispensable tool to the diver, since whilst under water the hour of the day is irrelevant. Instead the diver can keep track of remaining dive minutes via the unidirectional rotating bezel as well as the minutes on the main track. Minimizing the clutter on the dial in this design is a forward thinking move by Oris. Of course, the titanium case offers lightweight properties for easy wear on the wrist over the top of diving gear. The red rubber strap enhances a sporty yet dramatic look. The wearer can however, change the look of the watch by alternating it with a titanium strap which the watch comes with. The bezel is also crafted from titanium, as are the crown and crown guards.
