Talking about the "Deauville".. This is my latest acquisition.
View attachment 15462009
So seeing all these gorgeous Deauville pics above got me thinking - isn't this really a Bond watch!?

I must say I can't seem to find out why Oris called it the Deauville/Deauville Blue, but we do know that the fictional town of Royale-les-Eaux from "Casino Royale" was based on the town of Deauville in northern France (its charming casino below). I mean the place is literally name namechecked in the book, and I also very much recommend this lovely Andrew Graham Dixon piece (just a shame about the resolution).

Add to that it's a perfect retro dive watch. Worn on a version of a Nato, much like the Submariner was in Thunderball. A movie which was of course released in no other year than 1965...

Now I know this is all a bit tenuous, but, you could argue no less so than some of the "actual" Omega Bond editions of the past 😄. So all in, I submit that the Deauville Diver 65 is the ultimate sleeper Bond watch.
