Editor’s Note: Watches & Wonders (formerly SIHH) and Baselworld 2020 are canceled but that hasn’t stopped watch brands large and small from debuting their new wares. Stay on top of this year’s best new watch releases here.
We’re moderately obsessed with the Oris Divers 65 here at Gear Patrol. Vintage-inspired, svelte, and the perfect platform on which to iterate, the 65 is a staple in Oris’ modern catalog and one of our favorite dive watches, full stop.
The newest take on the Divers 65 platform is a special-edition collaboration with Japanese brand Momotaro Jeans, an Okayama-based company whose founder’s textile company contributed to the rise in Japanese denim beginning in the 1990s.
The LE takes the form of a steel-and-bronze version of the 65 accompanied by an indigo Momotaro denim strap with white “battle stripes” and yellow top stitching. Housed in a 40mm stainless steel case with 100m of water resistance, the watch is powered by an automatic Swiss movement with 38 hours of power reserve and features Super-LumiNova lume and a unidirectional dive bezel with a bronze edge.
The gradient green dial is the standout feature here, and whether you’re attracted to it will likely determine whether this is a watch for you or not. Available in late May, the Oris Divers 65 Momotaro ships in a special denim travel pouch at a price of $2,200.
