The Oris Divers Sixty-Five often appears on lists of the best diving watches under $3,500. In this video, we zoom in on the Divers Sixty-Five and discuss what makes this model stand out above watches from Doxa, Longines, NOMOS, Rado, and other brands in the same price category.
Like many model diving watches, the Divers Sixty-Five is inspired by an earlier model, especially when it comes to the design. Both the indices and steeply domed sapphire crystal glass hearken back to the model from the 1960s. Oris is clearly attempting to unite the past with modernity in terms of design and technology. While the use of artificially aged indices and luminous material on the blue dial might not be every watch fan’s cup of tea, it’s meant to give the watch a bit of retro charm. As for modern influences, there’s the 42-mm stainless steel case and the reliable Oris 733 caliber. This movement is based on a Sellita SW 200-1 and has a 38-hour power reserve. Incidentally, you’ll find the same movement throughout the entire Divers Sixty-Five series. Another common thread that runs through the whole line is the water-resistance of 100 m (328 ft).
But enough facts and figures – what matters most is seeing the watch in action on the wrist.
