Oris are doing for watches what British-based Charge Cars did the 1967 Mustang Fastback, when the carmaker released its 499—a hand-built, period correct Mustang with an electric engine capable of 0-60 in 3.9 secs. In a time of mass (some might say disposable) production, vintage aesthetics harken back to an era we associate with quality and care. But under the hood we still wish to reap the rewards of modern technology. This is the Divers Sixty-Five 12-Hour in a nutshell.
Over the last couple of years, the cry for smaller watches has been echoing throughout the enthusiast space, from myself included. Farer listened to the people and released their Three Hand collection in a more compact 36mm case.
In 2014, Christopher Nolan released the cinematic masterpiece, Interstellar. To summarize the film, a team of explorers travel through a wormhole in space to ensure humanity's survival from a now-dying Earth. One of the critical props throughout Interstellar is a one-off watch created by Hamilton, referenced as the “Murph.”
