Oris pairs up with independent Japanese company Momotaro Jeans to create a special edition Divers Sixty-Five.
Oris is one of the few watch manufacturers that remains privately owned, so it’s no surprise that they’ve decided to collaborate with another independent company, Momotaro Jeans. Momotaro is a spirited Japanese company whose high quality jeans are worn by style-savvy people in the Far East and around the world.
To put it plainly, the partnership makes sense. The independent Swiss watch company combines precision manufacturing with traditional hand-craftsmanship to make beautiful, high-quality watches, and the Oris x Momotaro celebrates a shared spirit.

The timepiece is a steel and bronze version of the iconic Oris Divers Sixty-Five, and comes on an indigo Momotaro denim strap with two white ‘battle stripes’, the denim manufacturer’s famous signature.
