Oris are known for their diving watches that are built to withstand the harshest diving environments, the latest addition is this ‘Into the Black’ limited Edition of just 500 pieces. Developed in partnership with Roman Frischknecht, a Swiss commercial diver, this watch has been approved and tested by one of the world’s leading professional divers, who can spend days at a time deep underwater.
The Oris Dive Control’s biggest feature is Oris’s patented ‘Rotation Safety System’ or ‘RSS’. Mistakes can be fatal in professional diving and the intimate knowledge of Roman has helped to develop this system. A standard uni-directional bezel is a key tool for divers to gauge time and your current reserve of oxygen levels, the slightest adjustment to the bezel could have a massive affect, and as such Oris have developed a locking system to ensure no movement of the bezel whilst underwater.
Peace of mind whilst diving has been ensured by the bezel, but there is still plenty of diving features including an automatic helium escape valve to regulate the pressure of diving, screw down crown and pushers to prevent water seepage and a massive 1000-meter water resistance. Oris even go as far to provide a water proof case with two rubber straps designed for water immersion.
At 51mm, the case head is impressive in stature, crafted from grade 2 titanium, and treated with the highly scratch-resistant black ‘Diamond-Like-Carbon’ coating. The strong black look is lifted in appearance with hints of high-contrast yellow; one of the most visible colours underwater. Other features on the dial stand out with superluminova that glows in the dark, such as the hands and hour markers.
Within the watch is the automatic winding movement running at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour at 4 Hz, with a power reserve of 48 hours. Complete with a 3-year warranty and your own tool to fit your black or yellow strap, this is a fantastic addition to this collector’s item.
