    you could start by posting detailed pictures of your actual watch. Maybe some of the guys here can offer some advice when they see it.

    Hi Muhd, when you post the pictures make sure to include front and back shots. I think the TT3 has a see through case back so it would be handy to see the rotor.

    It may be a fake. I have never seen the rotor of a TT3 so don't know 100% but the rest of the Oris range have little scallops cut out of the rotor next to the spindle and fakes tend to be straight or like yours. I only hope I'm wrong on this one.
    If you have got papers with the watch the serial number on the watch back should match that printed on the warranty card.
    Because there is some doubt about the authenticity of the watch I would have a watchmaker look at it.

    Sticky, that's the standard shape of the rotor on the 7750 and derivative chronograph movements so I wouldn't go by that, I'm not familiar enough with the TT3 range to offer an opinion one way or the other but if it is a fake it's a darn good one!

    Fitzer, I'm really glad I got that one wrong.

    Now I'm well confused (not difficult by any means) all the pics of TT3 rotors that I could find on the web had the little scallops cut out of them as I described in my first post.

    The only TT3's I have seen without dips or scallops are the fakes. They are considered moderate level fakes with usually Asian 7750 movements in them. Be aware there COULD be authentic TT3s with that shape but neither I owned nor any I have seen have looked like that but the fakes ALL look like that. Maybe someone here knows how to tell a Asian 7750 from a Valjoux and could tell you which way to hold the rotor to get pictures of that area. Edit, I just did a google image search of Oris TT3 caseback and the pictures of the same model all show the scallops EXCEPT if you follow the links to the ones that look like the one above everyone of them was a replica site. Again not definitive but certainly ringing alarm bells.

    The only way to be sure is to try to register the watch on MyOris on their website. See if they serial number is recognized by Oris.

    Also, if you have papers, stamped warranty card, etc., you should be pretty sure it is legitimate.
