The Divers Sixty-Five line from Oris has seen numerous expressions over the years, from the steel & Bronze “Bico” to a denim-inspired iteration to our very own limited edition. Now comes “Cotton Candy.” The watch is a light and playful take on the Divers Sixty-Five platform, with a bronze 38mm case and bracelet paired with one of three pastel colors: sky blue, wild green, or lipstick pink. The “Cotton Candy” typifies why so many collectors love Oris. The company isn’t stuffy. Its products maintain high quality, but remind us all not to take watches too seriously.
While just about everyone this spring is coming out with a green- or blue-dial version of a pre-existing watch, Oris playing with a palette perfectly poised for Easter. The bronze case will develop a strong patina as time goes on; if you’d like to see what the “Cotton Candy” might look like in due time, you can already find a few examples of the Hölstein Edition 2020 on Instagram that’ve developed patination and character.
The 38mm case size is meant to appeal to both men and women. If you want one, act fast. Given the popularity of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36 that comes in a similar hue of pink and blue, these more affordable (and fun) alternatives are apt to get eaten up.
