Category 1: Men’s watches up to €10,000: Oris Divers Sixty-Five

Judges’ substantiation: This vintage-styled dive watch with traditional proportions and a sleek look breaths passion for watches. It really shows that its spiritual father is a true watch aficionado. The Divers Sixty-Five is a beautifully made ‘vintage’ watch with contemporary sturdiness, precision and great presence on the wrist. Great value for money too.
