    Is this really a Vintage Oris?

    Trolling eBay and saw this Oris billed as "Vintage" - 33mm Stainless Case (looks plated to me) with 17 Jewel manual wind movement (no pictures of the movement were shown).

    I've read a few posts on the days when Oris was taken over by ASUAG Holding, the company that would become Swatch and was wondering if this could actually be a watch that was produced back then? I've seen hundreds of listings for Oris watches out of South Asia with colorful dials - most of them variations on two or three themes, often repainted dials - but this one stood out as more subdued and unique in the batch.

    I can find almost nothing on Chrono24 - 3 listings total from 1960 to 1982 - so it must have been pretty dark days for Oris indeed.

    I would say re dial - just based on general style.

    Re: Is this really a Vintage Oris?

    Thank you Nigel. Figured so... especially after I found this picture on eBay of the exact same watch sold out of Mumbai.

    That and the message exchange with the seller went like this...

    Me: What are the chances this watch came out of India?

    Seller: I have no idea. It was not mine.

    Me: Could it be a fake Oris?

    Seller: I have no idea. It was my dads and i don't think i would know the difference.

    Of course that great endorsement of the watch left me with loads of confidence (sarcasm font). I'm loosing all faith in eBay.
