Has Oris’s flagship GMT Diver, the ProDiver GMT been hit with the ugly stick? Well it does look robust and masculine but it isn’t exactly sleek is it. It’s a ProDiver I hear you say – it’s supposed be ugly!

It’s about more than sheer looks. Yeah, but look at the that dial. Having worked with professional divers to develop the original ProDiver,

what Oris has learned from them has informed every model since, including this new 2018 ProDiver GMT with stand-out feature being its Rotation Safety System bezel, or RSS.

The Oris-patented locking-system was engineered to give divers the assurance that the bezel hasn’t been accidentally moved during a dive.

It’s operated by lifting the bezel, turning it so that the minute scale on the scratch-resistant black ceramic bezel inlay lines up with the minute hand, and then pushing it back into place.

It locks with a solid, reassuring clunk to confirm that it’s been properly set.

Oris say of their pioneering innovation, that it has made the ProDiver one of the most respected watches in the professional diving community.

The new GMT model now features a 24-hour second time zone, indicated by a central pointer hand, a lightweight 49mm Titanium case, and a Swiss Made mechanical movement.

It is powered by an automatic Oris Cal. 748, based on SW 220-1, with big date window at 3 o’clock and a 24-hour second time zone, is water-resistant 1000 meters –

and has a Swiss MSRP of 3300CHF on its rubber divers strap or 3500CHF on its Titanium bracelet, Both feature the Oris-developed safety anchor and quick-adjust, sliding-sledge Titanium folding clasp with wet-suit extension.
