oris Divers Sixty Five redbarcrew Limited Edition of 100 pieces, exclusive to RedBar members around the world! This watch marks RedBar’s biggest co-branding venture to date, and a percentage of proceeds from the watch, reaching $50,000 went towards the RedBar Fund (an entity which donates to charities in the various communities where RedBar chapters have emerged). One of those chapters, quite new actually, is redbargreece , our fraternized watch community! The special thing about this one is that the watch itself is upstaging the buzz-worthy collaboration. Why? Because it’s just so damn beautiful and because there are only 100 of them in the world! We are super lucky to have two brand new ones in our community, owned by dgravias and nick_raftopoulos , the guys that started RedBar Greece, with the blessings of Adam craniotes himself, RedBar Crew co-founder and fellow Greek 🇬🇷 Now, continuing with the actual review, for the RedBar edition, we find the new bronze bezel that Oris revealed at Baselworld 2018, a red-to-black fumé dial, vintage-toned lume inside rose gold-plated indices, no date, a double-domed sapphire crystal, and a chocolate brown leather strap with dark red stitching. Luckily, they have saved all co-branding for the caseback, leaving the dial as uncluttered as they come! The vintage Oris shield takes center stage with the RedBar logo and the individual serial number just below. The subtlety of the co-branding helps to assure that the watch comes first and the collaboration second, an order of priorities that too many co-branding ventures fail to achieve nowadays, where the collab overshadows the actual watch.
