Oris have always had strong links with the diving industry and have made it their duty to grow both as a world-leading manufacture of fine Classicand as an ambassador for the promotion of global issues surrounding the care of our oceans. In order to continue their journey in creating spectacular diver’s watches that surpass any other rival watch within the luxury wristwatch industry, they need the help of professional divers and sea explorers. These passionate sportsmen have worn many an Oris dive watch on their wrist, testing it beyond imaginable capabilities and putting it to the test under some of the most challenging of conditions.
Oris diver’s watches have re-shaped the way professional divers take to the seas to explore great depths. With pioneering technical tools like depth gauges and impressive water resistant cases, these timepieces go far beyond just being able to show the time of day. Oris have worked closely with the likes of Roman Frischknecht – an ambassador for the company – who works in the most extreme of conditions deep underwater. Masterminding the technical features and cutting edge technology needed in a professional diver’s watch has been made that little bit easier by the expertise and knowledge of this commercial diver working alongside the manufacturer. Freediver, Carlos Coste also uses his vast 20 years of experience in working side by side with Oris to refine and improve this collection of highly functional watches.
The Oris Diver’s Sixty Five watch collection is home to a line of fashionable retro watches with 60’s inspired designs. The 40 or 42mm diameters are comfortable against the wrist, creating a statement whilst never taking the attention away from the gent’s outfit. With reliable sellita-based automatic calibers, these watches which are a remake of an earlier diving watch from the year of 1965, proved to be an incredibly popular model from the get go. One of the most important features of an Oris Diver’s Sixty Five watch is its domed, anti reflective sapphire crystal glass lens, as well as a unidirectional rotating bezel which is used to monitor dive times. These watches also feature a pleasingly slim case depth, making it a great timepiece to double up as an office companion.
The Oris Diver’s Sixty Five watch from our Berry’s collection, showcases a brown calfskin strap fitted to a brushed stainless steel case, integrated with 100 meter water resistance. The anti reflective and scratch resistant sapphire crystal top helps to protect a silver dial, with luminescent coated hour dots. Broad minute and hour hands also light up in the dark to assist with time reading in low-light conditions. The round shape of the dial and its surrounding unidirectional bezel helps to enhance a vintage-inspired look. As far as Oris diver’s watches go, this beautiful timepiece bridges the gap between a stylish piece of jewellery and a practical timekeeping tool for water sports and swimming.
