The Oris Divers Sixy-Five has been a wildly popular model for Oris since its initial release. The watch is based on their very first dive watch made in — you guessed it — 1965, and the design works just as well today as it did over half-a-century ago. With its quality construction, epic retro styling, and reasonable price point, it’s hard to find a downside to the Sixty-Five line of divers (check out our reviews here and here, and our field test here).
There are two dial styles and both are available in multiple colors — one with stylized numerals and the other with more traditional block and circle hour markers. There are also three different case sizes: the sweet-spot in 40mm, true-to-form in 36mm, and for the mightier-wristed among us in 42mm.
Last month at Baselworld, Oris unveiled a small but significant tweak to the Sixty-Five line by adding a full bronze bezel insert option to the blue dial version, giving it a warm, two-tone look — introducing the Oris Divers Sixty-Five Bico (for bi-color).
