The Best New Mechanical Watches: Oris Aquis Depth Gauge

I’m looking for something waterproof and rugged for the ocean, but that polishes up for a meeting at work.

The Best New Mechanical Watches: Oris Aquis Depth Gauge

Oris Aquis Depth Gauge

Not only does this Oris dive watch let you reach 500 feet, it tells you your depth. Using the principle of Boyle’s Law for pressure and volume, the watch allows a small amount of water to enter through a hole near 12 o’clock, showing the depth in meters on the bezel. At 46 mm in diameter, it’s the largest watch here, but not especially big for a professional dive model.

Diameter: 46 mm
Price: $3,500
