Now that we’re fast approaching trade show season, watch brands are starting to unveil some of their first 2019 novelties. Oris, one of our favorite firms here at Worn & Wound, is kicking things off in a big way with the limited edition Dive Control, a new member in Oris’ high-performance professional ProDiver family.
The Dive Control was developed with input from professional commercial diver Roman Frischknecht. This isn’t Oris’ first collaboration with Frischknecht. In fact, in 2009, the two worked closely to create the brand’s patented Rotation Safety System, which first appeared on the Oris ProDiver Chronograph. This mechanism allows the wearer to fix the bezel in place to boost safety underwater by preventing any accidental knocks that could shift the mechanism and impact timing (to learn more about this innovation and its development, click here). Oris’ newest watch incorporates this feature in a big, bold, professional dive chronograph rated to a whopping 1,000 meters.
