Fifty years after the release of her iconic diving watch, Oris delivers a modern interpretation of the Oris Divers Sixty-Five. Oris has travel half a century back to bring back to its first diving watch. Long time ago divers use to rely on their robust wristwatches to monitor their dive time and decompression measure. In 1965, the first diving watch designed by Oris sported a chrome plated brass housing wearing Plexiglas, with a bidirectional rotating bezel and a versatile black bracelet.
If the new Oris Divers Sixty-Five takes the resolutely sixties design of the original model, the watchmaking techniques implemented to its design really belong the twenty-first century. The housing adopts a more contemporary diameter of 40mm and is adorned with stainless steel which is also resistant to corrosion. The plexiglass gives way to a sapphire scratch-resistant glass and has internal anti-reflective coating that ensures the watch a perfect readability under water. The new model differs from its predecessor by a unidirectional rotating bezel adorned with a black aluminum insert that displays a scale of minutes. The watch is water resistant to 100 meters (10 bar) and features a stainless steel screw-down crown.
Oris Divers Sixty-Five Watch is powered by the automatic movement Oris 733 indicating the hours, minutes and central second hand and date at 6o’clock. The steel case is engraved with the emblem of the historic brand that can be found on the model 1965. The watch comes with a fabric strap or black rubber with stainless steel buckle.
