Divers Sixty-Five watches are one of Oris’s most well-known design watches. The watch is derived from the ORIS diving watch first introduced in 1965. Divers Sixty-Five watches use modern watchmaking technology, but continue to retro features such as curved scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass and a corrosion-resistant stainless steel case.
The Divers Sixty-Five series follows the bronze style previously created to pay tribute to Carl Brashear, and in 2018 will launch a new combination of stainless steel and bronze
Earlier in commemoration of Carl Brashear, the first African-American divemaster in the history of the United States Navy, ORIS launched two bronze limited-edition diving watches before and after. Both watches are based on the Divers Sixty-Five watch design, the brand’s first attempt to incorporate bronze materials into its work.

ORIS breaks the rules and integrates bronze into the watch very cleverly, surrounding the edge of the watch’s one-way rotating bezel. Paired with rose gold PVD-coated hands, the watch displays a warm retro charm. Bronze is a natural material. Will be affected by external factors such as the skin’s PH value and atmospheric humidity, which will cause bronze to appear patina over time, which means that the two watches of the new series will become different in appearance, each showing a unique A color unique to the wearer.
The leather and rubber straps of the watch are equipped with a quick-release system, and the wearer can change the strap without the need of a professional watchmaker (except for the metal chain strap)
ORIS launched two watches with different diameters and two-tone bronze cases-one with a diameter of 40mm and the other with a diameter of 36mm. The latter is the Divers Sixty-Five launched this year for people with thinner wrists. Both watches use a mechanical movement. The 40mm diameter model displays the date at 6 o’clock, while the 36mm diameter model displays the date at 3 o’clock. Both dive watches are 100 meters water resistant. The stainless steel caseback is printed with the brand’s representative badge, and you can choose a leather strap, a NATO textile strap, a rubber strap or a stainless steel chain strap.
