DAVOSA TERNOS SIXTIES 

AUTOMATIC

DAVOSA has revived 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 millimetres, concealing a robust Swiss DAV 3021 automatic movement. The dial is protected by a domed glass, a typical characteristic of 1960s watch design. A uni-rotational, aluminium bezel underscores the vintage look, and comes in either blue, black or burgundy.

Riveted Stainless Steel Strap

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 recognisable 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.

Domed Glass and Diver’s Bezel

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.

A hands-on review

Fantastic proportions fitting for a vintage inspired piece cased in a 40mm, full 316L stainless steel case, 48mm across from lug to lug and at 12mm tall, the Davosa Ternos Sixties is thinner than many dive watches in the market and despite being thin, it also packs a 100 meters water resistance with a screw-down crown and back.

The watch also comes with a unidirectional turning aluminum bezel for tracking dive times and an anti-reflective sapphire glass to give an illusion of an invisible glass. The hands and hour markers are applied with SuperLumiNova coating to give legibility in the dark.

The deployant clasp riveted steel bracelet with micro adjustments is comfortable, slim yet strong and fits most wrist well. With 20mm lug width, the watch is spoilt for choices for straps.

Overall, if you want to have an experience of owning a vintage diver or even just by having a great daily beater watch, the Davosa Ternos Sixties checks many boxes and is a good value proportion.
