For the uninitiated, Collective Horology is a California-based members-only club of watch enthusiasts known for high-profile collaborations with renowned brands around the world. In the past, it worked with the likes of Montblanc, Zenith, Tudor, and IWC, among others. Now, the club has been tapped by Swiss watchmaker Oris on a new dive watch that channels 1970s California culture.

We’re all familiar with Oris’ Sixty-Five Diver, named and modeled after the brand’s first-ever dive models from, you guessed it, 1965. In a most unprecedented way, the watchmaker, with the help of Collective Horology, has gone to 1975 with the new limited-edition Seventy-Five Diver. Featuring the same in-house Caliber 400 automatic movement as the Sixty-Five, as well as the 40mm stainless steel case with 100m of water resistance, the timepiece serves as a hypothetical look at what could have been released by Oris that decade. And might we say, it looks incredible.

The biggest differences between the Seventy-Five and its base model are its use of colors and shapes. For one, the bronze unidirectional 60-minute dive bezel is colored brown, surrounding a dial that’s reminiscent of a post-surf sunset, with an orange middle featuring a minute track and a red-orange outer ring that hosts the muted-yellow hour markers. Yellow lume is used for the hands and indices. Perhaps our favorite detail is the font used for the 3, 6, 9, and 12 Arabic numerals, which boast a decidedly tiki-style font. As for the two-tone bracelet, steel is used on either side of the bronze center links.
