    Oris Big Crown - Oskar Bider Limited question?

    Hi all

    I got my Oris Chrono Big Crown delivery today (but no papers), so quite excited.



    Found some very relevant info on the Oris website related to this watch but I still can't find a production year. The year 2006/07 was what I thought. Can someone clarify for me.

    Also I noticed that there are two identical watches on the site, the Oris OskarBider Limited Ed. and the Oris Big Crown Chrono, but I can't see an observable way of distinguishing between them - there is no LE number on the case back so I am assuming that mine is a non LE standard. How do I correctly tell?

    Cheers

    Just in case you've not already done so check the case for an LE number as Oris are quite fond of engraving them on the main case rather than the back.

    Thanks, sticky. I did manage to find this and from what I can tell the watches are identical other than the case back.

    That's a nice looking chronograph. Congrats on your Oris!

    Thanks, mate. Mine is definitely pre OBLE. I have worked that one out.
