About the Watch

DAVOSA is reviving the spirit of the 1960s with the Sixties edition of its popular Ternos diver’s watch. In this edition, the Swiss manufacturer of high-quality mechanical watches focuses not only on materials and design but also on how the watch feels on the wrist, in a bid to revive the carefree decade during which freedom in lifestyle and fashion became so important.

The case of the Ternos Sixties is made entirely from corrosion-resistant 316L stainless steel. It is shaped like a lens, and fits snugly onto the wrist: The screw-down back domes several millimeters,
concealing a robust Swiss DAV 3021 automatic movement. The dial is protected by a domed glass, a typical characteristic of the 1960s watch design. A uni-rotational, aluminum bezel underscores the vintage look and comes in either blue, black, or burgundy.

Today’s high-quality metal watch straps generally comprise of individually screwed links, with screws that are sunk into each link, rendering them almost invisible. In the last century, however, functional watches frequently featured visible rivets, which were easily recognizable by their raised profiles along the outside edge of the links. DAVOSA has given the Ternos Sixties a metal strap that revives this classic look. In keeping with the times, however, the rivets of the lower links are nevertheless screwed to enable easy watch strap adjustment.

With a case diameter of only 40mm, the Ternos Sixties adheres to the more moderate case sizes of earlier decades. It displays a slender height of 12mm, despite the domed glass and diver’s bezel. This is achieved through an elaborate case construction, with a case head that weighs only 58g including movement and dial. The metal strap adds a mere 68g, as the 3mm thick links taper from 20mm to 16mm, another nod to the prevailing fashion of 70 years ago.

About the Brand

A DAVOSA watch is instilled with more than 150 years of finest watchmaking history, even though the birth year of the DAVOSA name was in fact 1993. This was the year in which the Swiss Hasler family joined forces with Friedrich-Wilhelm Bohle, a German entrepreneur who had been a successful watch distributor since the 1960s.

It was a meeting of like minds from the start: both Friedrich-Wilhelm Bohle and his Swiss business partners were passionate about mechanical watches. By the late twentieth century the watch market had long been dominated by the quartz movement, so it was high time for a mechanical watch renaissance. Their fruitful cooperation resulted in a small and select collection of mechanical watches that was issued under the new brand name: DAVOSA.
The collection was an instant success, acclaimed by customers, retailers and the trade press alike. Subsequent collections went on to write their own chapter of the brand’s success story.

Today the DAVOSA brand offers a comprehensive spectrum of both elegant and sporty watches.
DAVOSA still operates as an independent, family-run concern to ensure continuing high standards of technology and design, and to share our passion for uncompromising watches with all our customers.

Our watches resulting from this passionate dedication to the art of watchmaking are now available in the United-States. And the world of sophisticated mechanical watches would not be complete without them.
