    It does have nice proportions and I love the retro domed crystal. But I don't think they've broken any new ground with this one. Still a little too large for me though.

    I'm assuming the bezel is ceramic?

    A very nice watch, but it doesn't wow me. The domed crystal is a nice touch, but at the end of the day, it looks like another sub homage. meh

    Well done, Oris, for coming (back) out with the unique-looking 40mm Sixty-five, but this new 42mm Sixty-five looks too similar to many other sub homages out there. I suppose if one must have a sub homage AND must have the Oris brand, then this is the watch.

    Nice watch, but it's closer to being a stainless steel version of the bronze 42mm Oris Carl Brashear than it is to being a larger Divers Sixty-Five.

    I'm a big Oris fan but would pass this one by in favor of last year's 40mm Sixty Five with its much more distinctive dial.

    Re: Well done, Oris!

    I think this would be a Sub homage in the truest sense of the word - it references certain aesthetic elements from the Sub but has enough differences to be its own unique watch.

    I like their decision to make the dial blue instead of black - and while I still prefer the O65 40mm to this (I am with Brent - this is more like a steel version of the Brashear), I think it is a very nice-looking watch.

    Oris certainly has been busy (between this and their new 112 movement)! Good on them - I am happy to see an indie company innovating (the big boys could learn from this).

    I was looking at these online this week. In the end, I just bought a 40mm Aquis Date from another member on here. I think i'll like the Aquis a lot more.

    Lovely retro Oris but it's just too big for me. I like that it is a unique design and not a knockoff of another dive watch.
