There’s a fresh breeze blowing through the world of watch design and floating on that breeze like a clump of gossamer goodness is Oris’ latest confection: the Divers Sixty-Five “Cotton Candy”.
Dive watches, while being a phenomenally popular and diverse bunch, lean towards dour designs with practical colours that give the genre its sense of utility.
But, as Oris has proved before with the spectacularly successful and varied retro range that is the Divers Sixty-Five, it doesn’t always have to be so serious.
Oris has always handled this versatile diver with a lighter touch, offering numerous limited editions and regular production versions in a range of handsome hues.
The case is the familiar and popular Divers Sixty-Five bronze, clocking in at a versatile 38mm across, with the pleasingly domed sapphire crystal, rated to 100 metres and with a stainless steel caseback concealing the automatic calibre Oris 733 inside.
Each watch is offered on an enticing full bronze bracelet with folding clasp.
For the dial, the watchmakers-and-confectioners in Hölstein have treated us to three super sweet flavours right out of the gate, the present one here being in "Lipstick Pink".
Add to this the use of bronze for the case and bracelet, and there’s no denying how the warmth and lustre of this hard-wearing alloy is well suited to the light and airy dial color.
What remains to be seen is how bronze — famous for how it tends to patina — will interplay with the dial.
Will a hint of verdigris make the dials seem that much more delicious? Only time will tell.
