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.
This is the new Moonwatch for the space race lovers who may not be able to afford an original pre-moon 105.012 or post-moon 145.012 Omega Speedmaster, being tested and certified by NASA to endure extremes in temperature, humidity, shock, pressure and vibrations. But unfortunately for some, these rare gems of timepieces also command a high asking price on the second-hand market. Costing 3 or 4 times that of the Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch I'm currently reviewing here (released in 2014). Or this watch could be suited to those who don't want the hassle of buying a second-hand original. What with finding one in a good condition, with a service history, from a reputable seller, at a good price.
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.
