The series of Oris divers sixty-five may be new to you but not to a vintage-inspired dive watch person like me. This timepiece has been renowned for the materials and model since it was first launched three years ago.

Carrying the aesthetic of the first Oris dive watch in 1965, this upgraded version comes with higher specs, and one of them is an anti-reflective and scratch resistant sapphire crystal. 

This crystal protects the elegant dark blue dial that is filled with gold markers and handsets. It is very neat and well-balanced. You can see how the ‘Oris’, at the top side of the dial, is printed bigger than the ones at the bottom because the date window is located right at the 6 o’clock. The writing at the bottom informs the wearer that this wristwatch is water resistant up to 100m.

Move to another trait and another reason why this modern interpretation of vintage Oris watch is worth buying is the 40mm wide case made of a corrosion-resistant stainless steel that makes this timepiece stand out longer than any other wristwatches. It can be said that this watch is safe even when it gets exposed a lot by seawater, just like a good dive watch should be. 

Almost forget to mention the bronze case that can develop a patina over time. This natural greenish layer will create a unique identity to the watch. It means there will be no two look-alike-watches even if they are produced in the same line. Is there any more valuable than this one? I don’t think so.

A dive watch mostly features a rotating bezel, and does the Oris Divers Sixty-Five Bronze Ref. 01733770743550752045. There is a unidirectional rotating bezel to help divers track the diving time accurately ⎯the amount of air in a diving tank to be exact. The bezel’s color does add a warm vintage vibe, perfectly matching the overall look, including the brown leather bracelet.
