An "Automatic Winder"

ORIS Chronograph Automatic Winder (NOS)
Caliber 7415 (?) Seventeen jewels
Textured black dial


I was caught between the white dial and the black version. Finally I bought the black as it looked more evergreen and easier match with off-market straps.
It is unusual to see the words "Automatic Winder" on an Oris dial and I understand from the watchmaker this being an early model, as seen from the plain golden rotor. The president-like stainless steel bracelet has plished centre links giving this watch a business elegant look.


The gold plated pushers compliment the gold bezel, the gold hands and the gold indices perfectly. Black & gold - an unfallible combination!
