The Manual Wind: Oris 1956 Diver

Oris Automatic
01 733 7707 4064-07 5 20 22 FC_sps.tifThe throwback timepiece reemerges once again.  If there is an iconic design somewhere in a brands history, rest assure, if it has not already risen from the depths, it is sure to in the coming years.  I have no qualms with this considering I’m all for modern technology with vintage style.  Oris is the brand this time taking a vintage diver from its past and bringing it back to life.  First appearing in their collection fifty years ago, the historic icon is transformed into a 2015 version; The Oris 1965 Diver.

With a stance of a conservatively sized 40mm, the Oris 1965’s steel case is outfit with an aluminum rotating divers bezel and domed sapphire crystal.  Superlumiova “Light Old Radium” markers and hands give this piece its vintage look with an aged patina appearance.  Exposure to sunlight and water will naturally fade and patina hands and markers in watches from the 60s, 70s, and 80s.  With this new popular shade of Superluminova, brands can now replicate this desired coloration while still offering legibility at night.

Beneath the historically inspired dial and crystal lies an automatic 38 hour power reserve swiss movement.  Fit with a choice of either NATO or rubber strap, Oris rounds out its tribute in an accurately sporty fashion.

The 1965 Diver is a great example of history repeating itself.  At a price point where most enthusiasts can partake in this diver tribute, under two thousand dollars, this piece is sure to reach the depths of pools and shore lines this summer.
