    Thoughts on Oris Divers Sixty-Five "Honey" for The Rake and Revolution

    Last week I came across the Oris Divers Sixty-Five "Honey" for The Rake and Revolution at the Oris boutique in Zürich. I'm really torn if I should pull the trigger. The dial is different but stunning, especially in the sunlight. But that's also the reason holding me back. I'm worried that after some time I "grow out" of liking it. On the positive, it comes with four straps. What are your thoughts?

    I think it depends what else is in your collection.

    If you have some other watches that are versatile daily wearers in more "safe" colors, you might really appreciate a striking and unusual choice like this, that you can pull from your watch box from time to time.

    If this would be doing daily duty, you might find yourself losing interest in the unusual color scheme over time, as you are concerned about.

    I picked up a Divers Sixty-Five (the Deauville blue) on the weekend, and am really enjoying it as a fun change up from my more versatile watches (Aqua Terra and BLNR). I wouldn't choose it as an "only" or a "main" watch, however.

    It’s not as if it was a bright orange dial like the OM, it’s a lot more muted and wouldn’t shout out that it wasn’t a standard dial colour. I’d most definitely get one.

    It's a really fun watch and I haven't grown tired of it (I bought it day one) if anything I miss it when I'm not wearing it. It's definitely a summer or fun watch to me and not a daily driver, although I've worn it with suits and it goes great. I get a ton of compliments and I don't on any other watch I own.

    I think it looks cool and if you grew tired of it, it would be easy to unload. Its definitely casual, but not to the point that it's very limited in its usage (like the Orange Monster).

    Did it come with a bracelet or just the straps?

    It comes without a bracelet. "Just" the four straps you can see on the second photo.

    You can buy a bracelet for $200. The straps that come with it are pretty good. I know people like the official Oris leather but I'm not really impressed for the price. The other straps are great.

    I love it! Think it might be my favorite variation of Diver Sixty-Five so far.
