There must be something good in the water at Hölstein, because Oris has been on fire lately. The 100 per cent mechanical brand has always had a solid following, thanks to its no-fuss divers and pilot pieces, but even though the watches represent excellent bang for buck, they’ve always been a little under the radar. That changed last year with the release of the original Divers Sixty-Five, a pitch-perfect reissue that hit all the right notes. Well, Oris has been busy making hay while the sun shines. There are now several new dial versions of the original model, as well as a 42mm limited edition bronze piece, which we’ll be tackling in-depth next week. Today, though, we’re focusing on the new steel 42mm version.

About 10 years ago Oris was a big thing in the WIS world. Northwestguy who has since sold off most of his watches due to personal issues owned several including the Frank Sinatra pictured here.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
