Oris has a special place in my heart. The brand’s Art Blakey was my first serious mechanical watch purchase a little over three years ago, and I still very much enjoy that watch. Since then, the impressive Calibre 400 has been introduced, which also means that prices for many of the brand’s watches have gone up significantly. Luckily, though, Oris also still introduces fun watches with trusty Sellita movements for more affordable prices. And that’s exactly the category these new Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy models in stainless steel fall under.

For me, Oris is that accessible and informal brand that lures new watch enthusiasts with fun and creative watches. Don’t get me wrong; I really like the impressive characteristics of the Calibre 400, but I still haven’t gotten around to the idea of Oris selling watches that now cost around €4,000. So I’m really happy that the brand continues to introduce watches at the more accessible price point of around €2,000, just like it’s doing today. And what better season than the summer to introduce a colorful trio of Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy watches in stainless steel?

Cotton candy for everyone!

Two years ago, during Watches and Wonders, Oris introduced a colorful trio of 38mm bronze Divers Sixty-Fives. I remember people being quite stoked about those cute-looking watches. I even remember it was quite hard to get your hands on one of them. No wonder, because they instantly bring a smile onto your face. And the good thing was that the watches were equipped with Oris’s version of the Sellita SW200-1. Again, that means the watches had a price of around €2.5K, which I think is great for such a fun-looking addition to the collection.

At the time, I was really tempted by that first set of Cotton Candies. However, I already own a bronze Oris Big Crown Pointer Date, and having two bronze watches in the collection would be a bit much for me. But now Oris is tempting us with a new offer: another trio of Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candies in green, blue, and pink. And this time, the watches are made out of stainless steel instead of bronze. What stayed the same, though, is the movement inside, ensuring that the more accessible price also remained. Let’s take a closer look at the new Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy lineup in stainless steel.

The Oris Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy in stainless steel

The new Cotton Candies in stainless steel have the same 38mm case size as before. So it’ll definitely look good on smaller wrists, but because of the watch’s bold presence, it certainly won’t look out of place on bigger wrists either. The green, blue, and pink on the dials of the bronze version looked a bit pastel-like. The dials on the new versions look a bit more saturated to make them pop a bit more against the stainless steel context. And whereas the lume on the bronze versions looked a bit like faux patina, it’s now stark white. The date is still visible through a cut-out at 6 o’clock.

As mentioned, inside is the Oris caliber 733, which is a Sellita SW200-1 with an Oris-branded rotor. That automatic movement offers a 41-hour power reserve, runs at 28,800vph, and is operated by a screw-down crown. The movement is sandwiched between a double-domed, AR-coated sapphire crystal and a stainless steel screw-in case back. The watches, which you can get on either a (recycled) Perlon strap or stainless steel bracelet, are water resistant to 100 meters.

I’m a fan!

All right, I won’t beat around the bush anymore: I love the new Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy in stainless steel. I think the 38mm size is perfect for a fun watch like this. The colors pop, but they aren’t too crazy, and I really like the white lume that Oris used this time. I much prefer it over the more yellowish tone that you find on most watches in the Divers Sixty-Five range. My favorite of these three models would be the green one. Oris doesn’t have a special name for it, but I’d say the dial is close to mint green.

I’d get it on the bracelet because that’s the better value, then I’d just try all of my own straps on it. It’s a shame that the lugs have an inconvenient 19mm spacing. But I guess you can easily squeeze your 20mm straps in between them, especially if you use curved spring bars. By the way, I do think the narrower lug spacing suits a watch of this size better than the more common 20mm gap.
