Swiss watch brand Oris introduces a new design in its vintage inspired steel Divers Sixty-Five collection. At 42mm in diameter, the new model is the largest of the series, and for the first time comes with a choice of leather and NATO straps.
As with the Divers Sixty-Five launched in 2015, the new watch is a direct descendent of one of Oris’ first diver’s watches, introduced in 1965. The 1960s was a pioneering decade for diving, with significant improvements to underwater diving apparatus made by the likes of Jacques Cousteau, Hans Hass and Christian J. Lambertsen. Reliable underwater timing instruments were critical as they explored the silent world; Oris was among the leading manufacturers of diving watches at the time.
