One can’t help but smile when considering the latest from Swiss watchmaker Oris. The bold and buoyant Oris Divers Sixty-Five collection returns, now with an enthralling trilogy of steel timepieces, each boasting the captivating colors of the ocean’s depth: cerulean blue, emerald green, and rosy pink.
Oris is not a stranger to creating extraordinary timepieces that stir excitement among enthusiasts. After the bronze-clad success of the Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy, they’re bringing an innovative twist to the retro design with this joyous triad. Each of the new references marries the sporty spirit of the original Divers Sixty-Five with a sparkling palette that brings a pop-art playfulness to the horological scene. These watches, each named after the birth year of Oris’s first diving watch, are sporty yet versatile and display a zestful exploration of colors that’s both cheerful and refreshing.
The body of these watches is a study in resilient beauty. Each features a multi-piece stainless steel case and a unidirectional rotating bezel with minute scale. An array of sustainable options are offered for the straps – whether you prefer the solid heft of a three-link stainless steel bracelet or the eco-friendly appeal of a recycled perlon strap that matches the dial colors, there’s a style to suit your wrist.
Ensuring these timepieces can stand the rigors of time and environment, they boast 10 bar water resistance, a testament to the reliable strength beneath their lively exteriors. Their stainless steel, screw-secured case backs feature special engravings, a signature of Oris craftsmanship. Completing the robust body is the stainless steel, security screw-in crown, designed to endure the everyday hustle while still looking chic.
Underneath the domed sapphire crystal glass, which boasts anti-reflective coating inside, lies the heart of these timepieces – the Swiss Made automatic mechanical movement Oris 733. With functions including central hands for hours, minutes, and seconds, date window, instantaneous date, and date corrector, it’s more than just an attractive face. With a power reserve of 41 hours and a frequency of 4 Hz, these watches ensure punctuality is never compromised.
The vibrant dials, the real stars of this series, arrive in three variants – blue, green, and pink – each offering a whimsical twist on the classic design. Every dial is complemented by indices and hands sublimated with Super-LumiNova®, a detail that also highlights the central lollipop seconds hand. This luminescence feature ensures the watch remains functional and legible even in low-light conditions, thus combining practicality with panache.
As for pricing, the trio is offered at a competitive range. For the metal bracelet version, the retail price is CHF/EUR 2,350, while the perlon strap variant stands at CHF/EUR 2,150.
Through this newest iteration, Oris Divers Sixty-Five has showcased not only the enduring appeal of its classic designs but also its ability to push the envelope in terms of color and creativity. Each timepiece brings an exhilarating breath of fresh sea air to the wearer’s wrist, making every glance at the time a reminder of the ocean’s vast beauty and the unending cycle of time itself. It’s proof that sometimes, to keep moving forward, we need to look back and draw from the wells of our history, all while adding our own vibrant spin to the tale.
