In 2015, Oris launched the Divers Sixty-five, which is a replica of the brand’s diving watch from the 1960s. With the extremely well-reproduced elements, it has received a lot of response. At that time, we I believe that this will open a new product trend for ORIS. As a result, they have developed a number of derivative models based on Sixty-five the following year. So far, the Sixty-five diving watch has developed into a large-scale diving watch family. In recent years, ORIS has continued to make material and face color matching contexts, and the details of the face plate have changed slightly from what it was when it was released in early 2015.
The detailed style of the watch has been slightly modified compared to the Sixty-Five series at the beginning. For example, the 12 o’clock time scale has been changed from the home plate shape to a triangular shape, and the 6 o’clock bar shape has also been modified to rounded corners.
Feature 1: Popularization of semi-copper case
In 2019, ORIS still released several Divers Sixty-five watches. In addition to stainless steel, it is the main force. The more obvious change is that the brand continues to make a big deal on the topic of ‘semi-copper’, and there is something like this entire watch. The rings are all made of bronze, and there are also aluminum-plated styles on the copper bezel. Divers Sixty-five is originally the source of the brand’s development of bronze watches. In addition to pushing bronze timepieces in recent years, ORIS has a large number of The implementation of the semi-copper design is also considered to be a minority in the watch industry. At present, some people may still have doubts about the entire case being made of bronze. At this time, only the design of the bezel is bronze provides a compromise solution. Don’t worry about allergies or scratches, but you can also experience the characteristics of bronze material changing with time, especially this bezel is bronze, which is easier to express when changing colors.
In addition to the anti-slip serrations in the middle, the crown has spherical protrusions on the top and bottom. Functionally, it can be easily operated by users with gloves. On the other hand, this is also an element of the retro style, but it is accidentally used. Not many brands
Feature two: Conservative time scale design
Divers Sixty-five started out with a distinctive pop style Arabic digital time scale as an attractive selling point, but since the brand extended the more common combination of dots and stick-shaped time scales for general diving watches in 2016, this basic style is now Divers Sixty-five instead became the main force of the series. This blue dial with geometric shape indexes is actually full of the taste of the first-generation Carl Brashear bronze limited edition watch (however, this 40mm diameter is slightly smaller than the 42mm limited edition of the year). If not grabbed in the war, this half-copper model in 2019 may be an alternative.
ORIS rarely does not make a transparent bottom cover, and this 100-meter waterproof depth is not a reason to make it a solid bottom cover. The reason for this is mainly to faithfully reproduce. The watch is equipped with Sellita’s SW 200-1 movement, which is equivalent to ETA 2824.
Feature 3: Box mirror reveals retro soul
Seen from the side, its flat middle case, bulging table glass and bottom cover are all important features of the watch’s contours in the 1950s. The part of the table mirror here uses sapphire crystal. Here we have to thank the advancement of watchmaking technology. Like this curved watch, a few years ago, only some brands above the middle price will use sapphire crystal. In addition, most of them still use synthetic resin or reinforced glass, let alone models at this price. However, in the past few years, the industry’s watch processing technology has greatly improved. Several important brands of Swiss brands The factories have introduced multi-axis CNC machines to reduce the cost of this large curved Dome and Box mirrors. As a result, the products at the general entry price can also be afforded, and the overall quality of the replica watch is therefore improved. Great progress.
