Oris Turns The Divers Sixty-Five All-Black

Every year for the last five, on June 1, Oris has released a 250-piece limited edition to celebrate the registration of its company in Hölstein, Switzerland, on June 1, 1904. So let us be the first to wish you a happy 120th birthday, Oris; I hope I look half as good as you at that age. Oris says it uses these Hölstein Editions to make watches that are cool (see 2023 or 2022) but would probably never otherwise appear in their regular catalog. This year continues that trend with a new blacked-out, DLC-coated Divers Sixty-Five.
The Oris Divers Sixty-Five Hölstein Edition 2024 uses the brand’s familiar retro diver platform, but everything is black. The 40mm case is a blacked-out DLC-coated steel. The dial, lume, and hands are black, too. Ditto for the rubber strap and DLC-coated buckle. Did we miss anything? Bezel, crown, and caseback are also DLC-coated. It’s the first time Oris has made an all-black watch.

Inside is the Hölstein brand’s manufacture caliber 400 with its high anti-magnetism and five-day power reserve. Register your watch, and you’ll also get a 10-year warranty. high quality replica watches

The 2024 Hölstein Edition will be available in boutiques, dealers, and Oris’ website beginning June 1. MSRP is CHF 3,900 (~$4,300). As with each of these limited editions, Oris will make 250 numbered pieces.
“The reason is there is not really a reason,” Oris co-CEO Rolf Studer says in the press release introducing the blacked-out Divers Sixty-Five. I appreciate the candor, and no doubt there’s some innate appeal to an all-black watch. It’s cool and covert and undercover, and in this case, it’s a first for Oris. If this were a general production watch maybe we’d complain about the practicality or legibility of a watch like this. But there are only 250, and surely the enthusiasts that’ll run out to scoop these up (it’s first-come, first-served!) aren’t buying these because they’re the most functional divers ever made.

While the high quality replica watches Oris Divers Sixty-Five is a total heritage play, it’s fun to see it rendered in a modern feeling, blacked-out version. It kind of reminds me of the Black Bay Ceramic. There’s something about the tension of a more contemporary material and a vintage-inspired diver that, sometimes, works just fine. high quality replica watches
