    ORIS BC DAY DATE REF 7500 Fake or Original?

    Hi All!

    I am thinking of buying an Oris Big Crown day date 7500. The watch doesn't have any papers or box, no serial number on the back, and the original strap is also missing. I met the seller, who showed me the watch, so I took a couple of pics. First thing that made me suspicious is that the watch doesn't have the red rotor in it. However I kindly ask for your expertise in this issue.
    Thank you in advance!

    Can't say for certain..... I THINK I can just make out the Eta shield on the baseplate, and replica Eta 2836/2824s usually have the flower shaped shock instead of the Incabloc.

    I don't see any obvious concerns. The BC3 is a long standing model that began production before Oris started using the red rotors in 2002. So bearing in mind its age it will be well overdue for a service if it hasn't had one.

    The lack of red rotor isn't an issue. Some reasonably good photos of a legit one here if you want to compare: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f29/fs-...94-767692.html

    Do they even create fake Oris'?
    Then again, what do I know.
    ROLEX Datejust 36mm Blueberry;
    ROLEX Pepsi GMT-Master 16700 (Circa 1987);
    ZENITH El Primero 36'000 VPH Tri-Color;
    SEIKO Prospex Solar Tuna SBDN026 (1981/3000)

    Considerations:
    AUDEMARS PIGUET Royal Oak 15450
    A.LANGE & SOHNE Saxonia Thin 37mm

    Thanks for the replies guys!
    I can also make out the ETA stamp on the baseplate.
    My only concern now is the missing serial number on the back. Isn't that something standard?
    Thanks in advance!

    Perhaps the watch was bought during the dark ages from Grey market dealer when they used to file off serial numbers?

    It's really hard to be certain but it looks real enough to me.
