The year 2009 was a great one for Oris considering the introduction of their new Divers’ watch, the “ProDiver Chronograph”. Once again Oris proves that it is possible to offer watches of the highest quality, excellent price, and innovation. The Prodiver is a gigantic 51mm in diameter and 19mm height watch with a titanium case and bracelet. Perhaps one of the most interesting features is the rotation safety system which protects the beautiful ceramic bezel from being turned by mistake. The way it works is that you have to lift the bezel by holding the inlay rubber in order to make it turn. This rubber that goes around the bezel gives it a cool look and gives you a nice grip to easily rotate the ring. The timepiece also features a black DLC-Coated titanium bar that protects the pushers and crown. Its self regulating valve allows the watch to endure depths of 1000 meters (3281 feet). As we expect from Oris watches it comes with a rock solid Swiss movement. It is a caliber 674 (ETA Valjoux 7750 base). The watch is presented in a nice box set that includes a rubber strap, an extra stainless steel bracelet, and tools for changing the straps. I would say that at the awesome retail price of $3,995, this timepiece is a must have for any pro diver or any diving enthusiasts. It is also a good alternative for the Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea that costs more than double the price at $9,250.
