The Versatility of a
Well-Made Watch

A timeless watch, worn three different ways for three different occasions.

The Versatility of a Well-Made Watch

A proper timepiece, like a well-crafted suit, has the power make a man feel instantly more confident because it quietly communicates an image he's trying to project. After all, you can tell a lot about a man from the watch he chooses to wear on his wrist. Perhaps that's why some men strap on various timepieces—to switch up what they want to say about themselves. But some watches are versatile enough to be worn in any situation—handsome enough for the boardroom yet durable enough for a triathlon.

Take the Oris Divers Sixty-Five, a revival of the iconic diver's watch that first appeared in the Oris collection 50 years ago. The new model, which can be configured in multiple different styles, shares the retro looks of the archival original, but it's been modernized using cutting edge watchmaking techniques. The case is crafted from anti-corrosive stainless steel. The vintage-inspired bubble-curved glass is made of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and comes with a unique anti-reflective coating on the inside to reduce glare and increase legibility underwater. A rugged self-winding watch with 100 meters of water resistance, it has a timeless style. Like your favorite unstructured blazer, it's a wardrobe workhorse that you can wear with nearly anything you own. It's cool and comfortable but always ensures you look and feel put together. Here are three ways we'd wear the Sixty-Five.

At
the
Office

Opt for a stainless steel bracelet band for your dive watch when you want to dress it up for the office or other more formal occasions. Anything but dainty, it makes for a more masculine dress watch.
