Oris is pleased to introduce a new design in its vintage inspired steel Divers Sixty-Five collection. At 42mm in diameter, the new model is the largest of the series, and for the first time comes with a choice of leather and NATO straps.
As with the Divers Sixty-Five launched in 2015, the new watch is a direct descendant of one of Oris’s first diver’s watches, introduced in 1965. The 1960s was a pioneering decade for diving, with significant improvements to underwater diving apparatus made by the likes of Jacques Cousteau, Hans Hass and Christian J. Lambertsen. Reliable underwater timing instruments were critical as they explored the silent world; Oris was among the leading manufacturers of diving watches at the time.
The case, in stainless steel, measures 42mm. It has a vintage-inspired bubble-curved sapphire crystal with AR coating. It has a black aluminium inlay bezel, and the caseback is engraved with the historical Oris emblem from the 1965 original. It is water resistant to 100 meters,
It has a dark blue curved dial with applied indices filled with vintage colored SuperLuminova. Hour, minute and seconds nickel hands filled with vintage colored SuperLuminova.
The Oris Divers Sixty-Five 42 comes in a special heritage presentation box. MSRP is 1,900 to 2,100 Swiss Francs and will be available in June 2016.
