    My first nice watch.. ORIS. Please help authenticate

    Hi guys so I finally decided to get my first nice automatic watch. I purchased on ebay and seller reassured me it was real and gave me week to get it checked out or my money back. can you tell me if you think its real. has serial number on case, bracelet, on some of the part through screen. It didnt come with any boxes or anythinig. I have never handled an premium watch so have no idea what to look for. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
    These are specs of Oris site for watch http://www.oris.ch/en/watches/oris-t...174-07-8-25-10
    Number Oris 674, base ETA 7750
    Dimensions Ø 30.00 mm, 13 1/4’’’
    Winding Automatic winding, with red rotor
    Power-Reserve 48 hrs
    Vibrations 28’800 A/h, 4 Hz
    Jewels 25
    Reference 01 674 7659 4174-07 8 25 10

    From my examination it has all the right numbers stamped (on bracelet 07 8 25 10, on one of the internal components 674) but i know the Chinese are pretty crafty with their fakes.

    I also shot video to show movement

    Hi Raf, it looks real but as you say some of the dodgy ones are really good. One of the places that forgers tend to fall down is the rotor. It's red alright but they often do not have the little scallops cut out of them next to the bearing (like yours has)
