WURW Wednesday 12.07.2022

Well, today I’m wearing a recent arrival..it’s an Oris Divers 65 12H Calibre 400…the 40mm SS case features Oris’s fairly new Calibre 400, which has a 5 day Power Reserve..and thankfully, a sapphire crystal back that allows one to take the occasional gander at this nice movement(albeit largely undecorated)..

Despite the moniker, it’s really not a dive watch, per se…it only has a 100m water resistance and the bidirectional bezel display hours & not minutes..it’s really a sports, or field, watch..for moi, as I only desk dive, that’s just fine..and I’m a fan of 12 hour bezels as I find them useful in timing events such as BBQs & dog walks..

Initial impressions?...the lume seems a little weak, but I really like the look of the white hour markers and hands on the matt black dial face..and the date window at the 6 o’clock position is nicely done, which means it doesn’t obscure the clean look of the dial..and this movement is uncommonly easy to wind..highly recommended..

Ooh! I like those watches! One day, I'll actually save some money to buy an Oris and that Mondaine is somewhere on one of my lists.

I doused myself in Tabac Original today...
