Retro Stopwatch: Reviewing the Oris Divers Sixty-Five Chronograph
Written by Martina Richter March 4, 2022


After the limited edition in bronze, the Oris Divers Sixty-Five is now available as a regular production chronograph model. Unmistakably influenced by history, this watch follows the current retro trend, but offers modern solutions in every detail. We give it an-depth look in this feature from the WatchTime archives, with original photos by Olaf Köster.

In 1965, Oris launched a divers’ watch that was ultramodern for its time. It had a case that remained water resistant to a depth of 100 meters, a unidirectional rotatable bezel and large luminous numerals. Reissued 50 years later as the Divers Sixty-Five, it proves to be one of this manufacturer’s most successful new models – thanks in part to the still-unflagging popularity of the retro trend.
