Hello,

I dont own an Oris...but my wife have an old Oris mechanical. The acrylic cystal bears the scratches of time and it needs a new strap.

I am just fascinated with this very small mechnical watch. Will post a picture of it here if I can get it restored. :)

:) Mr Bullosa,

I have achieved amazing results polishing out deep scratches with some plastic polishes on acryilic crystals.. just takes time and patience....

My restored Oris Diver from the 60's

When I bought this it was in sorry shape - have since fixed the movement, added an oris crown, had it redialled as half of the face was severely water-damaged, and have had it rechromed.

However some of the chrome flaked off during one of very frequent strap changes. It's now on an James Bond Nato but I'll have to find some time to take a few photos soon.

My apologies for the crappy pictures
