Oris’ involvement with sports and sporty events is well known for those interested in watches and in watch manufacturing techniques. Being one of the key trend-setters of the watch making industry, Oris has been on the market for a century now and has always maintained the highest standards of performance and excellence. Being famous for its landmark logo, the red rotor, Oris is known to having manufactured only mechanical movements and beautiful designs which found their inspiration in some of the most appreciated activities on the planet, starting with diving and formula one to aviation and cultural activities.
The collections introduced by Oris fall into 4 categories: Motor Sport, Diving, Aviation and Culture. This time our attention will focus on the Diving Collection, as it presents a new-comer on the market, the Oris Divers Regulateur, a watch firstly introduced at the Baselworld event in 2008. The Baselworld event is for the watch manufacturing world what’s fashion week for New Yorkers, as at this event all major brands of watches in the world compete to present the newest models and the most innovative technical movements which set the trends for the following year.
One of the leading trends this year refers to the size of the watches, and according to this Oris Divers Regulateur watch, the bigger the case, the better. The new Oris Divers Regulateur watch measures 49 mm in diameter and is made of a very strong material, to ensure the best mechanical safety of the watch in diving. The titanium used for the case is very light and offers freedom of movement to whoever might be wearing it. For divers, a watch’s water resistance is the first detail they look into, as they prefer watches that are solid and reliable even in the most extraordinary situations.
Apart from the basic functions such as hours, minutes and seconds indicators, the new Oris Divers Regulateur watch is equipped with a date window and also a tachometer. Like every diving watch, this Oris is endowed with a helium valve.
The titanium focused design hints to a very masculine approach intended by the designers from Oris, and the new Oris Divers Regulateur watch seems best fit for those of us who are adventurous and daring and who don’t settle for less than perfect. This new watch is the expression of perfection in watch manufacturing and its design speaks for itself. The dial of the watch is adorned with a pattern imitating the sea waves, making of this dial the perfect choice for a diving watch. The dial is black and has hour markers applied, numerals and hand in a dark orange color. This color is prepared by using luminescent coating, which makes the dial visible even in the darkest of places.
The watch is not all made of titanium (the case and the strap), as it uses aluminum for the unidirectional bezel. The automatic movement provided by this unique Oris Divers Regulateur watch guarantees a 100 meters water resistance and represents a highly reliable and functional timepiece for the most adventurous of us to wear.
