Oris Regulateur ‘Der Meistertaucher’ Watch Review
Monday - 22 April 2013
The Oris Regulateur 'Der Meistertaucher' was the first diver's watch with a Regulateur movement, and includes a centralised minute hand. "This function is essential to divers, who depend on a clear view of the minute hand at all times," the brand explains.
This firm favourite with divers has now been redesigned with a new look based on its Aquis case. The Oris Aquis Regulateur 'Der Meistertaucher' has a sleeker case design, the minute hand has been strengthened, and the SuperLumiNova inlay on the hands and indices is now white to improve readability in murky waters.
"These changes reflect Oris's capacity for innovation and craftsmanship, without losing the elements that made the timepiece initially so unique," the brand says.
The watch has a 43 mm titanium case and is powered by automatic mechanical movement, Oris calibre 749. It has a black dial with applied indices, and a red outlined minute hand. The hour display is placed at 3 o'clock, and the seconds are shown at 9 o'clock. A date window is positioned at 6 o'clock.
The Aquis Regulateur 'Der Meistertaucher' has a helium valve at 9 o'clock and is water resistant to 300 metres. It has a unidirectional revolving top ring with a minute scale on its black ceramic inlay. Additional features include a domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating inside, and a screw-in security crown. It comes with a rubber strap and titanium bracelet, and is presented in a waterproof case.
