Happy New Dive Year from Oris: The Dive Control Limited Edition was developed in partnership with Roman Frischknecht, a Swiss commercial diver who spends his working life deep underwater, servicing the subsea industry. Working with Roman, Oris developed the patented Rotation Safety System, or RSS, which can be found on every ProDiver and is designed to lock a watch’s diving bezel securely in place during a dive.
“This lightweight, black-DLC-coated titanium version of Oris’s professional diver’s watch is one of the most precise, most legible watches Oris has ever produced. Where most chronographs carry 30-minute counters, this has a full 60-minute counter, indicated by yellow detailing on the subdial at 12 o’clock. Only 500 will be made.”
The heavy-duty 51-mm case is constructed of Grade 2 titanium, and is coated in scratch-resistant black DLC. The water resistance rating is specced to an impressive 1’000 meters, the chronograph’s case is equipped with an integrated helium escape valve and screw-down crown and pushers. The watch is limited to 500 pieces and retails for CHF 4’850.00, movement is the SW 500.
