    Confused Original Divers sixty five reference

    Hi all,
    I'm hunting for the original Oris divers watch that inspired the sixty five re-edition.
    I'm having a hard time finding it, does anyone know the reference number of that watch? It wasn't just called the 1965 was it?

    This is the watch I'm talking about:

    Up until eighteen months ago, very, very few people knew of the existence of the watch that the Diver SixtyFive was based on. I would be quite certain that the 1960s original would have had a reference number known only to those at the Oris factory.
    It was probably known or marketed as the Oris Diver or something.
    Wristwatch marketing was not the slickly-oiled machine back then that it is now.

    If I were searching for the original, I'd be Googling search terms like "vintage Oris dive watch" in the hopes that maybe a second-hand dealer or vintage watch collector might list one for sale with all the relevant information.
    But before doing that, I would e-mail Oris HQ in Switzerland and see if I got a response from them.
    Worth a shot.
    Good luck.

    Thank you! That's what I suspected. Either it's very rare or I have no idea what I'm searching for, guess it's the former.
    I will keep hunting (that's part of the fun though, right!)
    But I will give Oris HQ a shout as well to see what they know.

    Cheers!
