    Question about the 65 40mm "Novelty"

    Hey looking for some info/confirmation on the 65 40mm listed as Novelty on the Oris site.

    I came across a picture of this watch on the for sale section when looking at prices for the numbered dial and am quite intrigued.

    I attached pictures of the watch I am inquiring about. It looks like the hand set and everything is stainless steel.
    Can you kind community confirm that for me?

    I liked the specs of the Movember edition at 40mm and all but I am not a fan of rose gold and I'm not really into bronze watches.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, there is no gold or bronze or gold tone on that model. All stainless steel. The lume is old radium, though, so there is a bit of warmth from that.

    A “novelty” is simply a new watch (even if it isn’t) and is taken from the old French for “new”

    Yeah I know what novelty is. I just added it for reference.

    Appreciate the answer. I love the printed dial version but this one adds choice.

    I think this one’s my favorite. I tried it on when it came out in 42, but 42mm is simply too large for me. The 40 fits much better, and I greatly prefer the date window at 6.

    I just need to see it in real life again to make sure the blue isn’t too saturated and flashy.

    Would you consider black dial? It is very nice too.

    The original with the funky numbers?Yes, but I don’t like the black pvd bezel very much. If I could replace it with a stainless one, I might actually prefer the black dial.

    That is great news for me too. I prefer 40mm version but the dial with printed numbers was not for me. Date at 6 gives the dial great balance.

    Really love this 40mm model with the stainless bezel/hands/markers. I'm holding out hope that they'll release an identical black-dialed version. Take the black dial from the Movember edition (or bronze bezel version) and put it on this watch and I'll buy it in a heartbeat.
