Perhaps one of the most charming watches on this list and one of the more popular items available from our shop - the Oris Divers Sixty-Five is a great example of a brand updating a classic design with modern materials and manufacturing techniques; replacing a coated brass casing with stainless steel, and a plexiglass crystal with a more modern sapphire crystal.
Cartier's dive watch may be a tool watch - but it's a very sophisticated one at that. The Calibre de Cartier Diver is a capable dive watch whilst simultaneously looking great with more dressy appearance compared to its competitors.

Perhaps the most recognisable watch on the face of the planet - the Rolex Submariner is such a tremendously iconic and timeless design, from the biggest luxury watch brand in the world.
This watch is currently my absolute favourite Oris watch at the moment (at the time of writing). It holds a design that has tried the tests of time and succeeded. This watch was originally constructed in, as you may have guessed ,1965. luckily when Oris relaunched this updated version they didn't kill what made it so special; but, improved on it with modern manufacturing techniques and new materials.
The Oris Divers Sixty-Five is produced with either a black or a blue and grey faced dial. It comes suplied with eirther a black nato-style nylon strap with a push button deployant buckle, a black or khaki fabric strap with a tang buckle, a black rubber 'tropic' strap, or a stainless steel strap with a push button deployant buckle. These photos are of the Oris Divers Sixty-Five [01 733 7707 4064-07 8 20 18] on a stainless steel strap.
Theres a good reason why Oris is one of our best-selling brands on our site and the new Divers Sixty-Five is no exception, and really shows what Oris does best. Creating great mechanical watches at an affordable price point. Staying true to their outspoken slogan ‘real watches for real people’. The updated Oris Divers Sixty-Five manages the tough balancing act of updating a classic design, with modern manufacturing techniques, for an audience with different ideals. While not diluting the original spirit and charm of the 50-year-old design icon.
Throughout wristwatch history Rolex have forever been at the forefront of innovation. They are known as the first major manufacturer of a completely water-resistant divers watch thanks to a series of landmark publicity stunts to promote their brand. They put another mark into the history books with the Datejust that automatically adjusted the date by itself - an unheard of accomplishment at the time. And they are also attributed with the first watch to show two-time zones with the GMT master.
