Topper Exclusive Specials on the best of Oris from Wind^UP SF

This past weekend was the second annual Wind^Up SF watch fair organized by the team at Worn&Wound. And just as we did last year, Topper Jewelers set up inside the booth of the event's title sponsor Oris, where we had a front row seat to helping hundreds of Bay Area watch enthusiasts try on various Oris models – including some of the brand's hottest releases from Baselworld 2019. We've handpicked five of the most popular Oris watches at Wind^Up SF, and have created a pre-order special for each that includes a 15% off discount on your deposit, along with an original Oris strap and buckle to complement your purchase. Simply use the code 'WindUPSF' at checkout from Topper's online store to take advantage of the special.

Pre-Order Feature: Oris Diver 65 'Bico' Stainless Steel & Bronze
Expected Delivery: May 2019

Quite possibly one of the most popular models of the entire show, and certainly a hot watch at Baselworld 2019 where it was announced, this new blue-dialed Diver 65 comes on a brand new two-tone stainless steel and bronze bracelet, with a solid bronze center link – something that we're confident has never been done before, no matter how hard we looked. With two-tone as a hot trend right now, doing it with bronze is certain to yield a striking look with some very unique character, once it's had some quality wrist time.

For a limited time, we'll be gifting a free leather strap with a stainless steel buckle for those who take advantage of this pre-order special. Note that it's similar to the two-piece leather strap that shipped with last year's Diver 65 steel and bronze model, and the same strap that ships on this year's current two-tone strap model with the blue dial. Get started and pre-order this Diver 65 right here, and don't forget to use the code 'WindUPSF' at checkout for the discount and strap.


Pre-Order Feature: Oris Aquis Great Barrier Reef Limited Edition III
Expected Delivery: July 2019

Now in its third iteration, the Oris Great Barrier Reef Limited Editions have routinely become some of our most popular Aquis models, and this year's entry is shaping up to continue that tradition. Clad in a gorgeous teal-blue dial and featuring the Barrier Reef signature inner date display, this is both an important watch for continued reef conservation in the Pacific, as well as a striking, and extremely photogenic model, as you can see from our 360º video above. And though this special watch ships on bracelet, through this pre-order special (don't forget to use the code 'WindUPSF' at checkout) we'll include an Oris Aquis black rubber strap on the stainless steel folding clasp and dive extension as a gift with purchase – an absolute essential for diving or outdoor adventure. Pre-order your Great Barrier Reef LE III right here.

Pre-Order Feature: Oris Aquis GMT Date
Expected Delivery: May 2019

A GMT complication hasn't been seen in the Aquis collection since the TT1 Diver days, but we couldn't be happier to have it back – in fact, many Oris fans have long awaited its return, naming this new Aquis GMT to many “best in show” lists from Baselworld 2019. Similar to its predecessor, the Aquis GMT combines an inner 24-hour hand with a bi-directional outer rotating ceramic bezel, effectively enabling the wearer to tell time in three zones at once. As with the Great Barrier Reef above, the free gift for this pre-order special also includes an additional rubber strap on its extension clasp – perfect for that dive holiday coming up this summer. Pre-order your Aquis GMT right here to get the strap and an additional 15% off your deposit.


Pre-Order Feature: Oris Aquis Clean Ocean
Expected Delivery: July 2019

We don't normally focus on the caseback with a new release, but the Aquis Clean Ocean has one of the coolest we've seen in a long while: a medallion made from plastic pulled from the ocean is set into the caseback – yielding a colorful, but important reminder of Oris' mission to lead conservation awareness efforts worldwide through their sports watches. Like the Great Barrier Reef III edition, the new Clean Ocean Aquis exhibits a gorgeous blue-green sunburst dial inspired by the colors of the ocean, and a matching ceramic dive bezel. To give you a full kit, we're including an additional black rubber strap along with 15% off for those who pre-order, using the code 'WindUPSF.' Pre-order the Aquis Clean Ocean right here.

Pre-Order Feature: Oris Aquis Date Diamonds
Expected Delivery: November 2019

What's an ocean resort holiday without your better half? Our fifth and final inclusion in this Wind^Up SF collection is the new Oris Aquis Date Diamonds – a confident and capable 36.5mm stainless steel dive watch with 300 meters of water resistance, finished with 43 diamonds (VS G/H 1,075ct.) in the bezel, and a sapphire at 12:00. The Aquis has long remained one of the most capable, yet wearable sports watches for women in Topper, and this particular example elevates that aesthetic with some beautiful gemstones. Get 15% off your pre-order and we'll also add an additional white rubber dive strap with the ratcheting extension clasp by using the code 'WindUPSF' when you pre-order here.

As always, if you have any questions about any of the watches from our Oris Wind^Up SF feature, or about the pre-order process itself, we welcome you to inquire by calling Topper Jewelers at 888-730-2221, or by e-mailing info@topperjewelers.com.
