Collective Horology announced their ninth collaboration in partnership with independent Swiss Brand, Oris – a Divers Sixty-Five Calibre 400 reimagined as a child of the 1970s, and affectionately named the Divers “Seventy-Five.” Limited to 250 examples, the watch is available for pre-order exclusively at Collective Horology’s online shop. And for a limited time and while supplies last, you’ll receive not one but TWO US-made ADPT straps, a 20mm Mil-strap in Straw and a 20mm Single Pass in Rust. Honestly, we just couldn’t decide between the two of them!
Attracted by their accessible and reliable manufacturing of all-mechanical timepieces, nearly 120 years of heritage, and signature designs like the modern Aquis diver and Big Crown Pointer Date watches, Collective reached out to Oris in 2021 about working together.
Asher Rapkin, co-founder of Collective, notes, “Core to Collective’s beliefs is that watchmaking is a canvas for creativity regardless of price.” He continues, “For years we have wanted to create a more accessible collaboration, but finding a partner that can do that at scale and meet the demands of watch enthusiasts is extremely difficult. We found that partner in Oris – an independent brand beloved by watch enthusiasts of all stripes.”
