The Oris Men’s 74376734159MB Aquis automatic watch is a stainless steel swiss-automatic movement timepiece that has an incredible high-class design, pristine functionality, and solid hardware. This is an entry level luxury watch that clearly has a target audience, although I think anyone can appreciate this watch. Oris is known for their high-quality Swiss watch manufacturing and this is another fantastic piece to add to their repertoire.
74376734159MB Design Layout & Mechanics
The analog display is laid into a round case and protected by an anti-reflective sapphire glass dial window. The display itself is
quite nice and features a black dial with orange accents that make it extremely easy to read the time at a quick glance. The dial also features a small window that allow you to see the date, and there’s also a small dial on the left side that features an independent second hand. The crown on the 74376734159MB Aquis is stainless steel and also feels extremely well-made and it’s also extremely easy to use. The bezel is made out of ceramic and features a unidirectional movement system and it’s honestly one of the nicer bezels that I’ve seen.
As you may have guessed, the build quality on this watch is extremely well-done. Pretty much everything is standard stainless steel and the weight is a reflection of this, as the device itself actually weighs 1.1 pounds. The case has a diameter of 46mm, a case thickness of 17mm, and a band width of 22mm. Speaking of the band, it’s very sturdy and feels as strong as any other band I’ve used. It’s linked extremely well and doesn’t show any signs of wear or a possibility of breaking. The clasp is a standard deployant clasp with a push button and it works without a hitch. I haven’t had any issues with it not deploying or getting stuck, so it’s safe to say it’s well-constructed.
The 74376734159MB also features a Swiss automatic movement system to ensure precise and accurate timekeeping at all times,
no pun intended. If you don’t know, an automatic or self-winding watch is a mechanical watch in which the mainspring is wound automatically as a result of the natural motion of the wearer to provide energy to run the watch, making manual winding unnecessary. This removes any worry or hassle associated with having to wind the watch yourself. This is a phenomenal feature
and it’s fantastic that Oris used it in the production of this watch.
I’ve already spoke a bit about the appearance of the watch, but I don’t think I’ve done it justice thus far. It’s truly a beautiful watch that emanates elegance and class without being overly flashy and pretentious. I personally love silver and black, so this watch is about as close to perfect as I could ask for in terms of the color scheme. The orange accents are great too, and I think it’s a bold move by Oris to use such an unconventional color scheme, but it turned out to be a beautiful decision that really paid off.
Overall, the Oris Men’s 74376734159MB Aquis automatic watch is a fantastic piece that carries a certain level of elegance and grace without sacrificing style and boldness. The features aren’t revolutionary, but their execution and style sets them apart. The entire watch flows in its appearance and functionality in a way that’s rare in a market saturated with mediocre and pretentious jewelry. The color scheme, functionality, and build quality all blend together in a truly unique way, and I think Oris did a phenomenal job with the creation of this watch.
