    Any way to figure out manufacture date?

    I purchased a pre-owned Oris Big Crown Pointer Date Model 01-754-7679-4361-07-5-20-77fc and I'm curious what year these were made. It is still on Oris' website, but out of stock of course. Is there any way to find out that information?

    Check out the serial #. The first two digits tell you approx year of manufacture. If the serial # is 39-12345 it was made this year (2019). 33-12345 was made in 2013, 34-12345 in 2014, and so on
    watches with serial #s starting with 2 were made in the first decade 28-12345 made in 2008 for example

    Perfect! Thanks. It's from 2014. Appreciate the help.
