Oris Drops a Fresh Divers Sixty-Five Chronograph: Smaller, Sleeker, and Ready for Action!

Oris gave their Sixty-Five Chronograph a makeover with a smaller 40mm case....

There’s some exciting news for all you timepiece enthusiasts out there. Oris has just released a brand spanking new Divers Sixty-Five Chronograph, and the best part? It’s gotten a bit of a makeover, downsizing to a more wrist-friendly 40mm in diameter. Let’s dive right into the details.

Way back in 2019, Oris introduced us to the non-limited edition Divers Sixty-Five Chronograph. It was a real head-turner, blending steel and bronze in a design that oozed vintage charm, which was all the rage at the time. However, after that initial splash, the brand went a bit quiet on the line. Why, you ask? Well, it seems that despite its undeniable appeal, the watch was a tad on the large side, with a 43mm width and a chunky 16mm thickness. It’s like trying to fit a Hummer into a compact parking space – a bit of a squeeze.

But Oris, being the savvy watchmakers they are, decided to give it another go. And this time, they’ve made some noteworthy changes. Say goodbye to the gilt/bronze accents and bezel – the new Divers Sixty-Five chronograph has gone for a more modern look (while still keeping that 1965-inspired vibe). Picture a sleek, all-black and white color palette. The case? It’s now entirely stainless steel, boasting a mix of brushed and polished edges. You’ve got two options when it comes to straps – either a faux-riveted bracelet for that classic appeal or a Cervo Volante deer leather strap for a touch of luxury.

What about what’s ticking inside? Well, fear not, because it’s the same trusty self-winding Oris 771 movement, based on the Sellita SW 510, that powered the last release. It packs a solid 48 hours of power reserve.

Now, the watch isn’t exactly svelte at 15.6mm in thickness, but that smaller 40mm size should make it a more comfortable fit for many wrists out there. Ready to get your hands on this beauty? It’s available right now, with a price tag of US$4,400 if you’re feeling fancy and want the bracelet, or US$4,200 if you prefer the leather strap. So, gear up, folks – the new Divers Sixty-Five Chronograph is here to make a splash!
