Even more appealing beyond the watch’s well-executed and relatively slim case and domed sapphire, which provide the design underpinnings for a steady aesthetic evolution over the years, was the highly accessible 1,600-euro original price point. It was clear that Oris had decided to offer an extremely strong value proposition with their Swiss-made timepiece powered by a Sellita SW 200 calibre. The water resistance of the watch was 100m, which is still far deeper than anyone is likely to ever dive.
In 2016 Oris rode on the success established by the Divers Sixty-Five by introducing a more conventionally dialled version of their dive watch, with a combination of round and rectangular indices. That year they also created a limited edition of this 42 mm watch in tribute to Carl Brashear, the US Navy’s first African-American master diver. Brashear’s inspiring story was chronicled in the film Men of Honor, where he was played by Cuba Gooding Jr.
