The first time we saw the Divers Sixty-Five presented in these poppy dynamic Cotton Candy editions was back in 2021 when Oris presented them in a full bronze case and bracelet. Now, Oris is bringing this playful design back, this time in a stainless steel case and bracelet, along with a perlon strap option!
Back when this Cotton Candy edition was released in bronze, it was presented in three pastel shade colours, reminiscent of cotton candy; blue, pink, and green. The dial colours upon its release achieved exactly what Oris set out to create “to bring a smile to the face of those who see them.” Whether bronze was the perfect colour combination for these pastel shades is a matter of personal opinion. What it did, however, was give a level of contrast to let the dials stand out.
The wearability of bronze was also another factor. While it certainly is an appealing material, especially with it being able to patina over time, giving each individual watch its own unique appearance, bronze is not versatile. It’s not a material that can be worn for a lot of different functions.
This is where this all-new steel release comes in, to fill in that gap all the while appealing to a wider range of audience. Oris is presenting the steel variants in the same trio of pastel shades. Oris is also going a step further and offering the Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy in blue, green or pink recycled perlon strap, for those that want a more casual and relaxed look. Having the coloured straps matching the dial also gives these timepieces a great summer look, ideal for the outdoors.
Oris’s new Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy comes in a 38mm stainless steel case with a matching steel uni-directional rotating bezel with a minute scale. The watch is offered in a three-link stainless steel bracelet with a folding clasp. We love this new stainless steel design. While the bronze version definitely has its appeal for its uniqueness, the stainless steel version offers a lot more versatility.
The movement inside this new Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy is Oris’s own 733 calibre movement. This movement powers the normal time function along with the date feature shown subtly at the 6 o’clock position. The 733 movement operates at a high-frequency of 4Hz (28, 800 VpH) and can deliver a power reserve of approximately 41 hours.
This new steel variant of the Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy is a fun watch, released just in time for European summer. The timepiece comes with Superlumi-Nova-filled hour indices and hands, providing excellent low-light visibility. The pastel-coloured dials against the steel may not have the same stark contrast as the bronze version released two years ago, but it does give an understated appearance with the dial colours still standing out beautifully. That, combined with the option of the coloured perlon straps make this new Oris Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy a fun, sporty and elegant timepiece.
