It’s such a striking and powerful piece that beautifully celebrates 10 years since the first Oris ProDiver watch was released.

Hidden within is the Oris 774 automatic movement based on the Selitta SW500 which provides hour and minute function, central chronograph seconds, running seconds, 12 hour counter and 60 minute counter.

Oris Divers Sixty-Five Bi-Colour Watches (01 733 7707 4355-07 8 20 17, 01 733 7707 4355-07 5 20 45)

Bronze has been all the rage in the watch industry for the past couple of years and there were many new watch releases made of bronze at Baselworld 2019. Oris were one of the first to jump on the bronze band wagon back in 2016 with the release of their first ever bronze watch: the original Oris Carl Brashear limited edition. Now, with collectors and enthusiasts still craving this stunning metal, Oris have bought it permanently into one of their key collections.

The new Oris Divers Sixty-Five Bi-Colour watches boast a stunning combination of stainless steel and bronze with bronze found on the bezel and the metal bracelet. The beauty of bronze comes from its ability to age and change colour over time. When exposed to moisture in the air and pH levels in perspiration, the bronze will develop a natural patina that is completely bespoke to its wearer. The stunning two-toned aesthetic is combined with vintage-inspired bubble-curved scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass and the powerful Oris 733 automatic movement.

  • Case Size: 40mm
  • Case Material: Stainless steel and bronze
  • Movement: Oris 733 automatic
  • Functions: Hour, minute, seconds, date
  • Power Reserve: 38 hours
