A first for Swiss Oris Replica, this limited edition diver replica watch is rendered in bronze to match the diving helmet worn in Brashear’s time. While the Oris Carl Brashear Limited Edition replica watch shares a case and bezel shape with the Sixty Five watch, the case size has been bumped up from 40mm to 42mm. Bronze watches have been increasing in popularity over the past few years, with many enthusiasts experimenting with methods of accelerating and controlling the patina process to yield specific results.
The warm and bright tones of the bronze case on this dicer replica watch are matched by an inky dark blue dial with applied rose gold plated markers and hands. The combination, especially with the subtle magnification provided by the bubble-curved sapphire crystal, is wonderful.
