When a brand states that it is independent, it’s challenging for buyers to make a distinction. To the end consumer, a nice watch is a nice watch. Whether it’s financed by an umbrella corporation or benefactor, to us, a timepiece is a product of design and watchmaking. However, when it comes to Oris, the independent nature of the brand seeps through to the fresh, innovative, and occasionally bonkers watch concepts. Today’s release combines those three sentiments — the Oris Aquis Sun Wukong Artist Edition. I delve into what makes this new Sun Wukong limited edition such a left-field curveball from the team in Hölstein.

I always get excited whenever Oris brings out a new Aquis limited edition. For many, it was a new Speedmaster LE that got pulses racing. Although, a new limited-edition Omega has been somewhat of a rarity these past few years. But for me, a new Aquis is a bright spark of creativity from the watch world. The frequency of releases may be too plentiful for some, but I enjoy witnessing the myriad of directions Oris takes. The past few years have been especially interesting since the introduction of Calibre 400 in 2020. The technical advancement of a proprietary five-day, anti-magnetic automatic movement elevated the Aquis above its casual perception. Calibre 400 was a worthy upgrade, but the dials and cases stayed pretty low-key with the movement taking center stage. Well, this new Aquis is anything but low-key, and it smashes my earlier preconception.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way
