Timeless Sixty-Five Limited Edition

Post by TimelessLuxWatches » Thu May 10, 2018 7:03 am

Timeless is very proud to announce our latest limited edition, and very first collaboration with Oris, the Timeless Sixty-Five! This new limited edition of 100 pieces was designed with the goal of producing what is, in our view, the perfect Oris Divers Sixty-Five!

Image

The Timeless Sixty-Five is also the first time we’ve worked with bronze, although we did it in a fairly subtle way. We adopted the bronze bezel of a few other Oris Sixty-Fives because it contrasts so nicely with our new green dial. At 40mm, the new LE shows a degree of restraint given the massive dive watches that have become altogether too commonplace.

Image

The most significant change we made to the Timeless Sixty-Five is, as usual, the removal of the date. I think that this change alone justifies the existence of this limited edition. Without a date in the way, the new Sixty-Five looks more purposeful and legible.

Image

There’s a lot more going on, however, than getting rid of the date. Most notably, we’ve designed a unique green dial with a dark, grainy appearance. The markers are unique to our Sixty-Five as well, having been borrowed from the Brashear limited edition with a couple of tweaks. For instance, with no date at 6:00, we’ve added a vertical marker, and replaced the bronze-colored lume with white.

Image

Here’s a look at the Timeless Sixty-Five at night. This view really highlights that additional 6:00 marker where the date used to be.

Image

While the brown leather strap looks great on the new limited edition, we wanted this watch to actually see action, so we’ve included this Oris tropical rubber strap.

Image

Each Timeless Sixty-Five will be priced at $2,200, which includes both straps, and just 100 will be made! Click here to pre-order yours!

That looks great. I wish it was the larger model. That is the smallest 40mm watch ever made, I think.

Fabulous watch, big congrats. That’s a real winner.

If I have to nitpick, it almost looks like the minutes hand is a wee bit too long.

Thanks! Unfortunately, for logistics reasons we can't select serial numbers on this LE, but you'll probably get a low number at least since you pre-ordered today.

Thanks guys, you're too kind.

Aside from size, what would you have done differently? Different color, more or less bronze, etc.

I think this is the perfect configuration of this watch.
Compared to the regular versions the pluses are:

- 40mm size with the best looking marker configuration
- no date

It’s a LE so obviously it’s not a vanilla black dial/black bezel which would probably be the best everyday configuration.

As I mentioned earlier probably the minute hand is a tad too long for my taste.

I think the two tone bezel sucks.

Would you rather it be full bronze or full steel?

Full steel. It's a nice watch as-is, but the bezel was jarring to me. It's still better than most everything else for sale. :thumbsup:

So you simply want a no date version of this? Possibly with Guilt dial? You can buy these right now.

I think the bronze bezel is fine for an LE, as you are only selling a limited amount. If it is true bronze, it will darken and become very interesting over time and not gold/blingy. I am not a buyer as I already have a BB58 on order which is similar.

Thanks! We were kind of doing alternating elements of bronze coloration and the green on this one. But we did do a lot of full steel (and some full bronze) renders on the way too.

I can definitely see what you mean, but unfortunately we're limited to the available parts (hands etc.) so I don't think we can affect that in future LEs. I wouldn't mind it being a bit shorter myself though.

Lumed pip.
Shorter minute hand.
Gold bezel and gilt dial markers with same hour marker shapes as the original.

I would love to see a white dial no date version of the original at 40mm or even the 42mm.
It's a beautiful world! Gerald.
