The Oris Divers 65 is a lot of watch for your money and it’s one you’ll be proud to have in your collection.
Oris has been manufacturing luxury mechanical watches without interruption since 1904. Located in the Swiss Jura Mountains, Oris is named after a creek that flows through Holstein Village.
Since its inception, the company has remained independent and privately owned. Their watches are the result of a true passion for mechanics and fine timepieces.
Blast from the past
The Sixty-Five first released in 2015 and is a watch that compares with the likes of the Tudor Black Bay. Oris’ first dive watch dove into the market in 1965. So fifty-five years later the company has released this lineup of fresher contemporaries.
The watch is composed of a black dial and bronze bezel. And that is unique as the bronze will patina fairly quickly and age with you in character the more you wear it.

The Oris Divers 65 has a 40 mm case diameter, and a dazzling double-domed sapphire glass. It is equipped with anti-reflective coating on the inside. The thickness of the case is 12.99 mm and the lugs allow for a 20 mm strap. The knurling of the unidirectional bezel has been carefully machined. It has a screw-down crown and is free from the obstruction of crown guards.
Stylish to look at
The watch features an Oris 733 Swiss-made automatic movement (based on Sellita SW-200-1, a main competitor to ETA’s 282402) with the trademark red rotor which comes standard in every Oris. It has a power reserve of 38 hours with Super LumiNova indices.

The Oris Divers 65 is warm and rich in character. Its appearance is inviting and pleasant to look at. It is classy, stylish and sophisticated all at the same time. It’s great for everyday wear, looks smart on the wrist and is a piece you’ll fall in love with time and again.
The watch comes in a variety of strap options. There is a brushed stainless steel bracelet, vintage-style brown leather strap and fabric strap. It’s also worth noting that the Sixty-Five does feature a date window, unlike the Tudor Black Bay. Oris manages to do this tastefully and subtly. The date window is positioned at six o’ clock, maintaining an easy flow of appearance without much obstruction to the dial.
New partnership with Momotaro Jeans
If your heart is set on something without the date function, Oris has you covered as well. It recently partnered with Momotaro Jeans, a handmade jean company based in Japan, to introduce the Oris X Momotaro.
It stays true to the characteristics of the Divers 65. But it features a green bezel with an indigo textile strap manufactured by none other than Momataro. The jeans are weaved on vintage looms and stitched by hand. This is a partnership that maintains the highest standards of craftsmanship and quality.
