    Oris Divers "Generations"

    Hi all, so I got my first Oris yesterday in the form of the TT1 Divers GMT Date. I'd been looking at the Aquis that replaced it for a while, and now I've seen a new version of the Aquis is coming out this year.

    So i was wondering: The TT1 > Aquis > New Aquis seems like a nice, solid design progression, much like the Porsche 911 - but what models came beforehand and lead up to what we have today?

    I'd love to see a little album of Oris Divers that show that evolutionary line over the decades.

    Thanks!

    Basically the divers TT1 remained largely unchanged for many years. Sure, it went from a 200M watch to a 300M rating and changed from a waffle pattern on the dial to the more recent wave pattern but it was only with the arrival of the Aquis that production of the TT1 diver ended. Just like the TT1 diver before it the Aquis is undergoing its first major re-model.

    So there were no Oris Divers before the TT1?

    The current Oris Divers 65 is a reincarnation of an Oris Diver watch from 1965.
