      Hi guys,
      Thought I'd share some pics of my Oris Big crown with pointer-date (circa 2009?).
      Simple classic design and quite in the spirit of the older Oris watches.

      The case back gives a good view of the ETA2836 inside. The red rotor was a Oris touch. The edge of the caseback has a coin-edged design, similar to the front of the watch. This improves the look of the caseback as the metal edge would look too big otherwise. Increasing the display window wouldn't work I think as that would only show the movement holding ring.

      The line is still pretty decent..

      And the bracelet is nice and supple.

      But the design of the clasp is a bit plain.

      Oris deserves credit as it was one of the brands which was instrumental in bringing back the Swiss watch industry back from brink of the abyss. In the late. 80s and early nineties, their classically designed watches using ETA movements sold well by focussing on the mechanical movements and using it as their USP. Their tag-line at the time was 'high-much', as seen on the rotor in the movement pic above.
      This watch came my way as a part exchange for an Omega Constellation. The previous owner had gotten the Swiss watch bug but as he got deeper into the hobby he started to appreciate other brands. To be specific, he was  getting into the 'manufacturer' brands as opposed to 'ebauche' brands. It's a shame as this watch is quite good as it is. Ah well, the previous owner should be into Pateks by now!.

      Yesterday my Oris watch hit a tiled floor when the strap pin broke and the back crystal popped off. Being in a rush , I quickly pressed it back into position and left it for later investigation.

      Today the crystal seems to be fixed in position, but I have no experience of removing or replacing these. Was a simple press of the thumb strong enough to do the job? How can I check, other then testing with my thumb nail. Are these a simple pop on fixing?
       
      Many thanks.

    • "Brain fart!!!" Brilliant expression 
    • Hi Guys, I have what I believe to be a 1970 Bulova Deep Sea Chronograph. My father passed on the watch to me after having it serviced somewhere in NYC I think. I took the watch out kayaking one day and shortly after it stopped. I imagine water intrusion being the culprit, despite not swimming or submerging the watch. As fascinated as I am with watch repair and the inner workings of these timepieces I think this is a little above my head. I would like to have the watch serviced and or refurbished and initially thought the manufacturer would be the best equipped for this task. Bulova informed me the movements are difficult to get parts for and after spending some time here in the forum it sounds like they may have saved me from having the technicians they have working at Bulova tear into the watch. I am curious if you guys have any recommendation of someone who specializes in these Bulova's that might be able to provide a little more information on parts or a reputable person that could give a timepiece of this beauty the due patience it deserves. Thanks for your help, Joel in Alaska
