From JustLuxe content partner iW Magazine

Oris sets lab-grown diamonds onto the dial and bezel of its Aquis Date to create the new, stylish Aquis Date Diamonds.

The new Oris Aquis Date Diamonds.

With a rich cherry red sunray dial, the new model is the first watch from Oris with this particular gem setting. The brilliant-cut lab-grown diamonds, indistinguishable from an Earth-mined diamond of equivalent quality, frame and add luster to the already luxurious dial.

Oris has utilized the Aquis Date collection in the past to highlight other unusual dial options. You might recall the watchmaker's eye-catching Aquis Date Upcycle or its spiffy New York Harbor Limited Edition, each of which offered unusual dials that also signaled the brand’s ongoing attention to environmental awareness.

The 41.5mm steel watch is set with a total of 1.2 carats of diamonds. (See specifications below for more details). Inside you’ll find a Sellita-based Oris Caliber 733 automatic movement protected with an impressive 300-meter water resistance rating. Oris offers either a steel bracelet or a matching cherry red rubber strap.

Price: $5,500.
