The Oris Divers Sixty-Five with the New Gray and "Deauville" Blue Dial
Earlier this year, we wrote a post proclaiming the Oris Divers Sixty-Five our favorite watch under $2,000 for 2015. Oris has since expanded the model with an appealing new version featuring a gray and "Deauville" blue dial. The two new colors work quite well together, and the collective aesthetic of the watch effectively recall the essence of the upscale coastal resort in the north of France for which the ocean blue color is named.
While most of the photos in our post on the prior Oris Divers Sixty-Five featured a fabric (NATO-ish) strap, this post features the Deauville version on a new tropic inspired rubber strap. This dial variant can also be purchased on a fabric strap, though the color is black instead of tan like the previous model. All the fabric and rubber strap options can also be purchased separately for around $100 each.
This new option was originally scheduled to arrive in January, but has unexpectedly arrived just before Xmas. It shares the same $1,850 retail as the original Oris Divers Sixty-Five and, as of this writing, we have plenty in stock for immediate delivery.
