By TLex Oris’s retro diver, the SIXTY-FIVE, which is based on a 50 year old design has been given a new look thanks to a two-tone grey and light Deauville blue dial option, inspired by 1960s color palette in particular the styles of upmarket French seaside resort of Deauville. I spent some memorable holidays as teenager in neighboring, Trouville, it’s a lovely part of the world.
Following in footsteps of the black-dialed, Divers Sixty-Five, it has the same case shape and size, and the same signature green SuperLumiNova numerals. However, now the watch is being offered with a two-tone dial in grey and light Deauville blue, a color a little more evocative reminiscent of the sea.
The light Deauville blue color is comes straight from the 1960s, and particularly from the cars, clothing and interiors seen during the period in one of its most stylish resorts, Deauville on northern France’s Normandy coast. As before, it’s powered by an automatic movement, and comes with a choice of a black rubber strap or a black textile strap.
Main Features of the Oris Divers Sixty-Five Ref. No. 733 7707 4065 include: a 40.00mm diameter multi-piece Stainless steel case housing an automatic movement, the Oris Cal. 733, based on Sellita SW200, with date at 6 o’clock.
Divers features include: a bubble-curved Sapphire crystal domed on both sides and with anti-reflective coating on its inside, a unidirectional rotating divers bezel with black aluminum inlay with 60-minute timer and zero marker filled with SuperLumiNova and a screwdown Stainless steel crown.
Water-resistance is 10 bar/100m. Could someone, please explain to me why Oris couldn’t manage another hundred meters of WR? Surely it wouldn’t have compromised the watch’s looks in anyway. I mean, they do call it ‘’divers’’, right?
Said two-tone grey and light Deauville blue curved dial is with printed SuperLumiNova numerals and markers. Hour, minute and second nickel hands are also filled with SuperLumiNova.
The Divers SIXTY-FIVE Deauville BLUE comes on a black rubber divers strap with a Stainless steel buckle. It is also available with a black textile strap with a Stainless steel buckle. Its Swiss retail price is 1750CHF.
