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.

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.
