    Decided on this Oris aquis for First “decent” watch, is it real?

    Hey guys. First post but have loved watches for a while. Promised myself after college graduation I’d get myself a solid beater watch that wasn’t an eco drive or seiko. Although I can afford it, I want a used watch as I plan for it to be used a ton and really never take it off. I’m a tennis pro at a country club and was looking for something with a Rubber strap that I could wear when teaching so I could always know where I was at during my lesson but could also wear it on a night out. Settled on oris due to its reputation for quality and looks. I have been looking for a used one for the last couple months (I’m very patient and wanted a good deal in case I needed to sell it) and Found a oris aquis on a local bst app and ended up haggling him down to 515. Original owner and paid through PayPal so god forbid it’s fake I’m covered. Whatcha guys think? Hope I made the right decision.

    100% Real. Damn fine watch you got there. You've got a 1st gen at a great price! I've got the blue Aquis with the black bezel (second gen). In fact, It made the rotation today.

    Quick tip, you're half buying the seller when you buy a watch. Make sure the seller is legit. If they are in the WuS forums, you can search their buying and selling feedback. Have a conversation with them about the watch and make sure all your concerns are answered. If the seller is vague, spotty communication, etc, pass on it. It's highly likely the same model of watch will go up for sale again from a nicer seller.

    Everything looks appropriate. It is an older model Aquis, however.

    I imagine it would be tough for a counterfeiter to nail the details in the awesome Oris clasp, or the lugs on the aquis. Those aspects look spot-on to me in these pictures. Congrats on getting the great price. Might need a service soon though if it never had one.
