One of the most admired independent watch manufacturers has taken a look at their back catalog and come up with a very enticing mix. The newly released “Oris Divers Sixty-Five 12H Calibre 400” was inspired by the first Oris dive watch, released back in 1965, while (as the name implies) being the first time that a non-limited edition comes equipped with their calibre 400 movement.The 40mm multi-piece case is made of stainless-steel with a vertical brushed finish. Mounted to the case is a steel rotating bezel with a double-sided 12-hour aluminum insert, that can function as a second time zone. This is a big change that essentially offers a GMT function, instead of the standard dive time bezel we’ve become accustomed to seeing made by Oris.On the flip-side is a sapphire exhibition caseback that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. It showcases some jewels, gold gears, and an openworked steel rotor engraved with the Oris shield logo.It comes equipped with a knurled screw-in security setting crown, embossed with the Oris logo. Topped by a domed sapphire crystal on both sides with an anti-reflective treatment on its underside. Water-resistance can reach up to 100 meters (330 feet).Time is exhibited on a black dial with steel applied hour index markers; while circling around the periphery is a ring of white printed small seconds/minutes markings, with slightly larger markers for each five-minute increment.The hour index markers are composed with a mix of round and rectangular designs, while at 12 o’clock it’s shaped as a shield emblem. The central sword-shaped hands, the lollipop seconds hand, and the hour index markers have all been fitted with a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility. There is also a black date window that seamlessly melds into the background at the 6 o’clock position.
