An overly complicated complication.

In my quite adamantly overruled outvoted opinion, dive watches should not have date functions.

In the case of this Aquis, if one really thinks they are necessary, they should not be so hard to read. We're talking about air supply here.

Definitely good to know what day one will run out of air.

What a mess.
Meritocracy: the privilege, wealth and advancement of those who chose their parents wisely.
Capitalism: a cult that promised to do good for the worst reasons.
Nationalism: a profound longing to go back to a past that never existed.

Agree. Even Rolex and Tudor Submariners with date function are fashion to me. Not that I don't own them. . . .

Oris is on my shitlist after I bought a brand-new Aquis and the clasp wouldn't stay shut. I wrote Oris design/production chief detailing the problem, which I suspect was a factory defect. His response (in essence): Tough shit.
My response (literal): Fuck you. And I'll tell the story any time and every time I can.
Doing it now.
Beware!
Oris is no different than Invicta or Doxa. Sleezeballs. Avoid the brand like the plague it is.
