Anyone tried an Oris Aquis Rubber strap?

Post by 3migo » Sun Mar 11, 2018 2:05 pm

Hey guys, curious to hear your thoughts on the Aquis rubber. I really dig the look of the new River Rhine edition on the grey rubber, but rubber straps are very hit or miss for me, I really dig them or they don't work for me at all. And with those integrated lugs, gotta be sure on it.

Any thoughts?

Natural rubber. Medium pliability. Fantastic buckle system.

Love Oris - not a fan of their propriaraty strap system. Their OEM straps are great, tho, and as stated, the buckle rig is one of the best in the business

Talked to one AD, said he's already got a few on order and shipping soon.

Looks good, took me a second to find the date indicator.

The rubber strap is actually very nice, I helped a coworker fit one a while back.
I was impressed with the quality feel.

Agreed. Hate the proprietary lugs, love the rubber on my Maldives. Comfortable, and the on the fly micro adjustability of the buckle is superb. Bracelet is top notch too, but lacks the instant adjustment system.
