Oris ProDiver Date & Chronograph. A look at the 2013 updates

The Oris ProDiver Date and redesigned ProDiver Chronograph were shown at Baselworld 2013. At the request of a Topper customer and Watchuseek forum member who is purchasing one of the updated Date models, below are photos focusing on the relatively small-scale changes that Oris made to the watches when compared to the previous versions.

ProDiver Date

While the case of the ProDiver Date model is nearly identical to its predecessor, it features the following differentiating features: a matted ceramic bezel, wider lume strips on the shorter and square-tipped hour markers, and more angular lugs.

Though the color and intensity of the lume is the same on both watches, the newer Pro Diver date features more substantial lume markers that take up more surface area of the dial.

The redesigned Prodiver Chronograph features the same updates as the ProDiver Date: A matted ceramic bezel, shorter hour hand markers, and wider strips of lume. The Chronograph is also different from its predecessor in that its sub-dials feature guilloche patterns instead of waves.
