What would you get if you combined two ongoing trends in the watch world: Bronze and Cotton Candy colours? If watch afficionados ever thought of this, they would now have their queries answered by Oris and its new line of Divers Sixty-Five “Cotton Candy” watches. Oris has a simple ambition – to bring a smile.
The watch is entirely made of Bronze (accept the stainless-steel case back), the case, bezel, crown and bracelet, the same combination used by Oris for the Hölstein Edition 2020 and adds a peppy palette of dial colours in either sky blue, wild green or lipstick pink.
This is a bold move by Oris combining Bronze, a material Oris has used so well and successfully, with Cotton Candy colours that Oris is using for the first time in its line-up. We will find this out soon when the watches become available in June 2021.
The watches have a 38 mm case, an internationally unisex dial size. There is a bit to look forward to with these watches as the Bronze will patinate during the natural, charming process of oxidisation and how this would affect the look of the watch with different dial colours. Each model is powered by an automatic Swiss Made mechanical movement and delivers the same quality standards of the Divers Sixty-Five collection is now synonymous with: domed sapphire crystal, water-resistant to 10 bar (100 metres) and hands and applied indices filled with bright Super-LumiNova®. Why ‘Cotton Candy’? Because these are watches designed to bring warmth and the optimism of better times.
