Many of us who got our first real six string and played until our fingers bled will recall the heady days of 1965. Riots in the streets, love in the air, and a palpable joy in living. And us flower children also had handsome watches with a beautiful tropical patina from a manufacturer that really knew how to make wonderful timepieces.
While the Oris Divers 65 Chronograph is inspired by the original diver’s chronographs the company made in the 1960s. These pieces come on leather or steel straps and feature a 43mm stainless case and Oris 771, base SW 510 movement with running seconds and a minutes counter.
The 65 has no date window or running hours hand – if you’re diving for more than a few hours you might need a doctor’s note – but it does feature 100 meter water resistance and anti-reflective Sapphire crystals on the front and back.
The pieces ship in June and will cost about $4,000. It’s obviously a bit pricey for a two register chronograph but there ain’t no use in complainin’ when you’ve got a dive to do especially if you spend your evenings down at the watch shop. After all, we were young and restless and needing to unwind. [Guitar Solo]
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
