The Watch
 
.
THE original and inspiration for the very popular modern Oris Divers Range.
.
These cool divers really have come into the spotlight in modern times as Oris decided to release a re-edition of these which has been incredibly popular.
.
This Original version is very seldom seen and even more so accompanied by its Original Box and Paperwork.
.
This guy dates from around the late 60s but was in fact sold in 1974 by F.Hinds in Harrow. It's fantastic to see the Watch and its accompaniments still together.

Getting Acquainted

.
Bits that stand out:
- Original Box and Paperwork.
- Dial Lume has aged beautifully.
- Unusual to find.
.
Nitty Gritty:
- Small crack to the Plexi.
-Some scratches to the Case.
-Centre Second hand is a replacement.

.
Overall this Oris is in nice Vintage condition.
The Dial is in lovely order and the lume has aged a colour that only can be described as Spectacular.
The Chrome topped case has some scratches and minor wear but is pretty minor compared to other chrome divers from that period.
Definitely one for the serious Vintage Dive watch collector at a fraction of the modern reissue.
