    Oris Pointer Fake?

    Hello Everyone!

    I was hoping you could help me out.
    I have been looking to buy this Oris Watch but I have my doubts, I believe it might be fake.

    I have looked on the internet and this watch from the 50s and 60s seems to have swiss made written almost everywhere. As you can see on the images I yploaded of the watch it doesnt say.

    what are your thoughts on the matter?
    Thank you!

    Not sure but wouldn't the bad guys take a little more care if they were faking a vintage piece?

    It's hard to vouch for the originality of the dial (could be redone, would need better pics), but the movement and case back seem legit.

    Many of ORIS's watches from that period were humble 7-jewel pin lever watches. They're cool but will never keep great time.

    There is something more to the art of watchmaking and repairing than that of merely assembling a watch and making it 'tick.'

    Thank you for answering! I thought it seemed odd not seeing swiss on the movement or on the back to be honest. But if you think it looks legit I apreciate it. Here you have more pics of it.
