    Hi everyone. I'm planning on buying my first oris and came across this Artelier complication from 2010. The seller originally bought the watch at an AD in Taiwan. When I checked the reference number (581 7952 43 51LS) on the warranty card, all pictures on the internet come with a gold bezel instead of the stainless. I looked at some retailers as well as the Oris website. I've included a picture of what I found online. The first two pictures are of the watch in question. I asked if the gold was polished off but he says it was purchased like this. Could this be the case or is this a fake? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I’d put my money on it being real since only Oris have been daft enough to put a movement that small in a watch that big.

    Ha, yeah. It looks a bit ridiculous with the case back off.

    I think that Oris borrowed an ETA movement for that job so if you’ve had the back off you may be able to see an ETA logo on the movement.

    Thanks! I went and saw the watch. Wound it about twenty times and it ran for two to three minutes before dying. Pass!
