The New Replica oris diver sixty five chronograph is pleased to introduce the first series-produced version of the Divers Sixty-Five Chronograph. The watch is based on the design of the very first diver’s watch Oris created in 1965.
In 2015, Oris relaunched its 1965 dive watch. Riding the wave of nostalgia for vintage-inspired timepieces, the Oris Divers Sixty-Five replica watch was and is a resounding success.

The Oris Sixty-Five Chronograph is equipped with an automatic chronograph movement based on Sellita SW 510 with a decent 48-hour power reserve. The watch comes with two strap options, a brown leather strap with a buckle or an integrated stainless steel riveted bracelet with a folding clasp. Prices start at EUR 200 on leather to EUR 200 on steel. More details at perfectwrist.co.

Based on Oris’s First Divers’ Watch The high-fidelity reissue of the three-handed watch from the 1960s was followed by a retro-modern facelift, various special models – also with innovative wristbands made of recycled plastic – and finally a chronograph.
This vintage-inspired diver features a modern, water-resistant case, chronograph function, and a little pop of bronze in the bezel. Why We Love It The Divers Sixty-Five has already cemented a reputation as one of the all-time greatest values in the entire category. It’s cool, it’s comfortable, and it just gets it right.
