This special steel and bronze version of the Oris Divers Sixty-Five is made in collaboration with the independent Japanese company Momotaro Jeans.
Momotaro is a Japanese company whose high quality jeans are worn by style-savvy people in the Far East and around the world. Named after a Japanese folklore hero, Momotaro was launched in 2006 by Mr Hisao Manabe. Its roots lie in his textile company, which he established in 1992 with just three employees in the small coastal town of Kojima in Okayama.
With his unique Jeans crafting techniques using finest long-staple cotton, Mr Manabe introduced a new international denim standard. Nearly 30 years later, Mr Manabe’s company employs 140 people in factories, stores and offices in Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Okayama. Okayama, once depressed, is now a denim capital, revived by enterprises that grew up around Mr Manabe’s businesses.
The new automatic watch 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.
