    Show Your Oris Diver 65's

    I think this might be my next watch, although not this side of spring. The Everest is scratching my Explorer itch, and now I'm considering a dive watch

    I even came across a deal (link below, no affiliation) but it is on a canvas strap and I'd prefer rubber or a bracelet. I'd also prefer the 36mm although when I tried on the 40mm it looked okay on my skinny wrists.

    I'd love to see some pictures from those who have one. How do you find it to wears? It would be a daily wearer for me, so comfort and durability are key.

    If there has been a recent thread I couldn't find one, Last I found was from 2017.

    I love them. I think the tropical strap is really good quality and, at least for me, very comfortable. The only thing which irritated me was the presence of only one keeper, however the AD rectified this for me. I think the hi-domed sapphire crystal is great. The watch overall sits low on the wrist. SW200 keeps good time and I like the subtle date window. I love the goofy 60's font, makes me smile every time I look at it

    Not sold as an Oris 65, but the Carl Brashear LE Bronze.

    Get the bracelet. It's absolutely superb, the best I've owned (shames the black bay 58 imo).
    Wish I'd never sold mine.

    Some lovely examples, keep them coming. I do like the version with the big numerals. I'll have to try it on again for size.

    I canít find any images in my phone right now but I can echo the comment about the tropical strap; itís super comfy and wears well but really could do with an extra keeper. I havenít got round to it but Iím sure it would look great on a NATO or leather as it wears quite flat and close to the wrist and the numeral colouring would suit quite a few colours
    Great watch for the money

    Tried one on a few weeks back, really nice however I'd gone in for another Oris which didn't suit me and walked off dejected.
    I may well go back from the 65 later in the year.

    I managed to try one before Christmas last year and was impressed. Love the vintage styling. Not so keen on the horror stories I hear about the movement. Unfortunately my BB58 ticks my vintage dive watch box, although maybe consider the blue variant if one came up cheap enough.

    Hearing some rumors (mainly YouTubers) so nothing concrete. That Oris maybe looking to go in house with their movement.

    I'm wondering whether to hold off purchasing a 65 now, or wait until Basel in case this is annouced.

    Can you expand on the horror stories?

    None first hand (so I apologize for the sweeping statement) but have also read and watched reviews on being 25-35secs out.

    Also read a few stores within cosc.
