Originally previewed earlier this year (hence the snow in a few of the photos), Oris has announced the official launch of the first non-limited Divers Sixty-Five chronograph. Essentially a mix of the format previously established by the bronze Carl Brashear chronograph of 2018 crossed with the general look and feel of the 40mm steel and bronze Diver Sixty-Five, the new Diver Sixty-Five Chronograph is 43mm in steel with bronze and rose gold accents. 

The Brashear limited editions (one chronograph, one time/date diver) have proven to be hot tickets within the Oris mind share so it was really just a matter of time until the brand decided to offer a non-limited expression of the design. Following closely to the bronze/steel three-hand Divers Sixty-Five, the Chrono has a bronze bezel with a black aluminum insert surrounding a no-date two-register chronograph layout. With a gilt application over a black dial, the Divers Sixty-Five Chronograph is legible and offers 100m water resistance (the same as the original Divers Sixty-Five, which I have personally used while diving).

Initial Thoughts

Thanks to its twin register layout and lack of the date display, the Divers Sixty-Five Chronograph is nicely balanced and home to a large handset, lumed markers, and even lume-tipped sub-dial hands (not common). While 43mm is quite an increase in size over the proportion of the standard Divers Sixty-Five, the larger dial leaves room for the chronograph display and I found the Divers Sixty-Five Chronograph to sit nicely on wrist and feel sporty without being overstated, especially with the added bubble effect of that very domed crystal. 

Available on the leather strap (as seen in the photos) or on Oris' easy-wearing rivet-style steel bracelet, the Divers Sixty-Five Chronograph starts at $4,000 and uses a Sellita-sourced Swiss automatic chronograph movement. As the latest entry to the Divers Sixty-Five line up (and the first series-produced chronograph) this new Chronograph is a handsome, nicely made, and a strong take on the format previously established by the Brashear LE.
