Oris has been hot lately. I’ve only just gotten more into the brand, and now they’ve come out with some insanely cool vintage inspired pieces.
Just last week I noticed that they launched this green-dialed Big Crown Pointer Date. It caught my attention right away. The tone of the green is very subdued but still vibrant.
While the green color certainly is cool, I don’t see myself wearing it every day. It isn’t the easiest thing to match to different outfits, after all.
Today, however, Oris released something that I definitely could see myself wearing every single day – the Diver’s Sixty-Five Movember edition. This bad boy is one of the coolest releases I’ve seen in a while.
The new Diver’s Sixty-Five is a mismatch of all the existing models.
The dial has the same layout as the 42mm version introduced in 2016. It is black, with white applied indexes. The indexes are filled with Superluminova and framed with gold-plating. The hands have also received the same treatment. The text on the dial, as well as the minute track are painted in yellow to match.
The case is 40mm, and identical to the original Diver’s Sixty-Fives introduces in 2015. The profile is very slim, and comes off a little dressy for a diver. The watch is very comfortable on the wrist and slides under a cuff with no effort.
The domed sapphire crystal adds to the vintage look of the piece. Because of the crystals height and curvature, the edges of the dial seem a bit distorted. This serves absolutely no function, but it mimics the hesalite crystals of vintage watches really well.
The design of the bezel is taken from the larger Diver’s Sixty-Five. The triangle at twelve has a gold-colored lume pip to match the hands and the indexes. A nice little touch.
The back of the watch has a shield logo instead of a see-through case back. To me this is fine, as the Sellita SW 200-1 is not the most beautiful movement out there. The back also says “Oris Movember edition”, with a little moustache engraving to separate this watch from the regular editions.
Other than that, the only Movember branding can be found from the straps. I think it’s great that Oris didn’t go overboard with it.
The watch comes with two straps included – a tan leather strap with mustache embossing. The other strap is a burgundy-nude-brown–colored NATO. An interesting choice, but pretty fun nonetheless. The steel hardware of the strap also features mustache engravings.
To me this watch is perfect. I’ve had my eye on the Diver’s 65 for a while now, but there hasn’t been a model that would make me pull the trigger. This one really might be the one.
It combines all the things I like from the old versions into one watch. The 40mm case sits just perfect on my 16cm wrist. I always felt that the 42mm case was a bit too big for me.
The dial in black with gold-framed indexes is stunning. This layout hasn’t been available in the smaller size until now.
I’ve been looking for a slim 40mm dive watch that could be worn every day.
This might be just it.
