Oris BC3 Chronograph

Oris BC3 Chronograph

Why We Love It 

Oris is a darling amongst watch enthusiasts today.

With hits such as the Diver 65, Pointer Date, and Big Crown Pilot line headlining their collection, a slew of awesome special limited-edition models released annually, and a decidedly community-facing way of doing business rounding them out, Oris is appreciated - if not beloved - by beginner and tenured collectors alike.

With all of the attention Oris is getting these past several years, however, it is easy to forget that they have been making exceptional watches for nearly 120 years, and there are quite a few forgotten hits from the recent past.

This model, a BC3 Chronograph, dates to circa 2001 and offers a tremendous bang for the buck in terms of styling and mechanics. With a look that blurs the lines between aviation and diving, the BC3 series combined brushed and polished stainless steel case elements with a highly legible and clutter-free dial. Powered by a Valjoux 7750 automatic winding chronograph movement, the BC3 is no slouch on the movement side, either.

Utilizing a triple subsidiary register layout with a color-matched date wheel, barrel pushers, and an oversized winding crown, its function-forward layout is playfully contrasted by its hooded lug case design and stepped bezel.

This particular example is in great condition throughout, showing light signs of use and wear in keeping with its age. It comes complete with its inner and outer box set, undated warranty booklet, and receipt dated from 2001. The original rubber strap has kicked the bucket, so we've included a brand-new TROPIC® rubber diving strap and are also including its signed steel deployant clasp.

This chronograph offers great looks, functionality and heritage at an impressively accessible price point - don't miss it!
