Oris teams up with Collective Horology to present a limited edition of 250 pieces of the historic Divers “Seventy-Five”.
This, which is Collective Horology’s ninth collaboration with watch brands, aims to celebrate its Californian origins, featuring a colourful scheme from the 70s.
The main highlight that stands out is the layout of the dial, with the return of the bold rectangular markers filled with Arabic numerals at the 3-6-9-12 o’clock positions, revived in 2015.
The dial now comes in two shades of orange, with a peripheral ring in dark orange where the white hour markers sit. A central disc in light orange painted with a dark orange minute track and in its middle a set of pencil hour and minute hands which is completed with a lollipop seconds hand, all filled with a beige Super-LumiNova and which also gives life to the hour markers.
On the outside, the stainless steel case measuring 40mm in diameter and 12.80mm thick, features a bronze bezel with a brown insert that matches perfectly with the tones of the dial, domed sapphire crystal, fluted crown at 3 o’clock, see-through case back and the usual 100m of water resistance.
The screwed sapphire rear case reveals the In-house automatic movement Caliber 400 that reaches 28,800 Bph and offers 5 days of power reserve.
The watch is attached to a tapered Oyster bracelet with rivets, starting at 20mm wide at the lugs and ending at 14mm at the clasp.
The watch will be for sale exclusively on the Collective Horology website and is now available for a pre-order period at a price of USD 4,150 which will then rise to a price of USD 4,500.
It is with some surprise that we see the return of the Oris Divers “Seventy-Five” with a more retro layout that was discontinued not long ago because it did not garner much favour from the public, but which we actually liked.
The colour scheme now introduced seems to work very well and be the perfect match with the two-tone steel and bronze case, we would even venture to say that it is perhaps its best combination, and we liked it.
