Another ORIS Chronograph

ORIS BC3 Chronograph
Caliber 674 Twenty-five jewels

I finally added this new-old-stock piece to my ORIS collection! A truly beautiful piece with so much racing flavour!
Initially I was hesistant due to an imperfect lume on the minute hand. This put me off for awhile and very soon I forgot about this watch on my wish-list.
Recently I got acquainted with the General Manager of Oris and her watch engineer in the Service Centre, who assured me that parts for this discontinued Oris model is still available. This assurance set my heart at ease and I went ahead to bargain and finally secure this watch from the shop.

The watch came in steel bracelet which I swop out to a black racing leather strap. What an awesome combi!
