Introducing: The Oris Divers Sixty-Five, A Great Looking, Retro-Diver For Under $2,000 Now With A Blue Dial
The Divers Sixty-Five isn’t really a reason constructed utility piece. It was water impervious to “just” 100 meters (all that anyone could need for sporting work area jumpers). It was a more modest, lighter, device watch with a touch of enthusiasm to it. That enthusiasm comes from the way that it’s a watch that, gladly, does less than its partners. This priggish coolness comes from its strong plan signals; a case plan that stays faithful to that of its ’60s archetype, and a dial plan with openness and intelligibility as a main priority.
This new blue variant is a welcome option in contrast to the exemplary dark dial that overwhelms Oris’ jumpers as well as all watches in this class. The new Divers Sixty-Five highlights a shading scheme that was probably motivated by the up-market French Deauville pattern of the 60s – a scene that I have witnessed uniquely clearly. However, I do know that Connery and Bardot got together in 60s Normandy before Si Don Juan Etait Une Femme, and after a touch of filtering through dark & whites, I reasoned that the territory should truly have motivated a range of hoary blues and quieted oranges.
Indeed, in case we’re talking tones in Normandy, those equivalent hues are the stuff of the bluffs of Étretat that Monet and Boudin painted in the century prior to our last. What I’m trying to say is this was a strong shading choice by Oris if Normandy is what they were going for.
Inside the new Oris Divers Sixty-Five beats the automatic Cal. 733, an adjusted Sellita SW200 that beats at 4Hz (28,000bph) for 38 hours. This is a dependable, workhorse of a development that won’t burn up all available resources. It fits impeccably within this watch.
Listed at CHF 1,750, this is a strong contribution for simply above $1,700. The new plan prompts are roused by a rather cool time in which this thin, lively nautical watch might just have had a place.
