Oris has just announced Divers Sixty-Five Ctime, a limited edition version of its popular retro-style dive watch produced especially for Ctime, a Chinese watch magazine and forum based in Shanghai that was founded in 2014.
The Ctime edition is based on a version of the Divers Sixty-Five launched last year. It retains the original design modelled on a 1965 Oris wristwatch, but matches the steel case with bronze bezel (that has a black aluminium insert), a more restrained two-tone combination than the usual steel and gold.
It’s matched with a dark green dial that features the Ctime logo at six o’clock, along with a commemorative engraving on the case back.
Another feature unique to this edition is the red triangle on the rotating bezel. The red marker on the bezel is a subtle reference to a phenomenon unique to China. On Chinese stock markets, positive price movements are shown in red, while downwards changes are in green.
Material: Steel with bronze bezel
Water resistance: 100m
Movement: Oris 733 (Sellita SW200-1)
Power reserve: 38 hours
Strap: Brown suede leather strap, additional green and grey NATO-style strap
Accessories: Special packaging with aged leather travel pouch and strap removal tool
