Geneva Watch Days 2022-Already Loved: Oris Divers Sixty-Five 12H Caliber 400

With a five-day power reserve and a 10-year warranty, Oris Divers Sixty-Five 12H Caliber 400 has already created its own fans with its humble stance and powerful features.

At lunchtime, I got a notification on my phone, Oris had started live. Out of curiosity, I immediately opened it and came across the introduction of the Divers Sixty-Five 12H Caliber 400. The design bridged the gap between the past and the present, as it referenced Oris’s first diving watch in 1965, which gave its name to the new model, its caliber was the in-house production caliber 400, which attracted great interest from everyone, but something else caught my attention during the live broadcast.

Usually, in such live video posts, certain people ask questions, a few express their appreciation or short reviews are written, but the majority of the rest watch silently. It didn’t happen this time, hundreds of people joined the broadcast and as far as I could see they were all enthusiastic comments. Once again, I realized that watches have a different spirit than all other hobbies. People were showing pure love as if they had gone to those years and attended the Beatles concert, and I was astonished trying to see the clock from the sentences that made the bottom of the screen invisible. So much so that I occasionally missed the conversation by looking at the caliber 400 and the expressions of admiration for the design of the Divers Sixty-Five 12H.

Another thing that stands out to me is the Oris Divers Sixty-Five 12H Caliber 400 with a five-day power reserve and a 10-year warranty, yes it’s a very charismatic watch, but it’s not flashy, but rather modest. He has an air of self-assurance, strong but not using his strength to overwhelm him.

The simple and elegant air of the model is very impressive. When I saw the enthusiasm, I couldn’t help but think, there was a sentence in a book by Haruki Murakami: “In this world, people get tired of things that are not annoying. The things they don’t get tired of are mostly annoying things.” While I reaffirm this theory every day, I saw the opposite happen in the world of watches with the Sixty-Five 12H Caliber 400. In fact, the same atmosphere prevails in other watch reviews; everyone thinks that the bezel adds a great charm to the watch, and that the movement made by Oris makes the watch very valuable.

The Oris Divers Sixty-Five 12H Caliber 400’s features are endless: The stainless steel case is 40mm in diameter, and for the first time the Caliber 400 caliber is seen as standard, not limited, in the Divers Sixty-Five model, as well as a second time zone indicator and sapphire for the first time in this model. It has crystal glass. What’s more, the Sixty-Five 12H Caliber 400 is resistant to magnetic fields up to 2250 gauss, it has a 10-year guarantee when you save the watch to MyOris, and I think it should be repeated once again: A power reserve of 120 hours, that is, 5 days, gives life to the watch. Maybe professional divers will find it insufficient, but the dive watch, which is resistant to 100 meters of water pressure, is a sufficient feature for most swimmers. The precision of the watch with a 12-hour bezel has not been forgotten, the movement also has a second stop feature, enabling a more precise time setting. The most important feature is that it is a price/performance product that reflects the brand’s philosophy: With a price tag of 3,300 Swiss francs, it has a much more affordable price than its counterparts.
