    Can someone tell me about the brand Orator?

    I just bought an Orator watch off Ebay and from the research I've done I think I got a very good deal. It is a 40's or early 50's looking watch with great patina, would like to know more

    Is it a full calendar watch? The little I know comes from older threads on WUS and NAWCC. Orator was a brand of Schild & Co., a movement and watch maker.

    it came in early! here's the Orator and my first impression in person is that I love it! I threw it on a black nato I had lying around but will eventually change the strap...38mm with a great vintage look
