Originally released in 2015, the Divers Sixty-Five was Oris’ first foray into heritage diver territory, and a very successful one at that. Pulling from their extensive archives, the Divers Sixty-Five was based on a quirky and distinctly Oris mid-century design that gave the watch a unique look and flavor. A mix of a large dial, massive crystal, thin bezel, and slim mid-case made the watch stand out from the increasingly crowded sea of vintage-inspired divers. The result was an immediate success, quickly becoming one of the brand's most popular designs.
This version of the Divers Sixty-Five features a classic dive dial layout with applied geometric markers for an iconic look, and a solid bronze bezel with aluminum insert. The use of bronze here is unique, adding a touch of warmth to the case. As it ages, the bronze will patina in unique ways. The 40mm case is right in that sweet spot for a dive watch, wearing comfortably, yet looking stylish. The huge domed sapphire crystal and step-tapered rivet bracelet then exude vintage flair. The Divers Sixty-Five will quickly become your go-to everyday watch.
Inside of the Oris Divers Sixty-Five is the Oris 733 / Sellita SW 200 movement. This is a 26-jewel Swiss-made automatic with 38-hour power reserve, hacking seconds and a frequency of 28,800 bph. It’s a very reliable and robust automatic that will keep great time.

The rich history of Oris dates back to 1904, when Paul Cattin and Georges Christian founded the brand in Hölstein, Switzerland, where it is still based. Over the past century, Oris has reached many great achievements, including being one of the 10 largest watch brands in the world in the 1960’s. Since the 1980’s, Oris has pursued a catalog of unique mechanical watches that has channeled their independent spirit. From their patented Worldtimer to their depth gauge diver to their mechanical altimeter pilot’s watch, Oris has continued to innovate in a way few other brands can match. An achievement that is highlighted by the brand’s commitment to fare, and accessible prices.
