Oris is a well known watch brand that's been around for more than 100 years. Their pointer date models are among the more collectibles for this brand. It wasn't long ago when I acquired a manual wind that ended up with the Clairvoyant. That was mainly because it was a small-sized watch and not suitable for my wrist. More recently, I was able to get another pointer date, which is larger and with a very similar design as the wife's.
|There are four hands on this watch. The hour hand, the minute hand, the second hand and the pointer hand for the date.|

|A closer look of the dial shows how nicely this watch has aged. The lumes are practically gone where it was on the hands and eight of the hour markers.|
|The movement can be seen through the transparent back. The back also says its water resistant but I had to do some research to find out it was only for 3ATM or 30m. That should be okay for the typical rain showers or washing hands.|
|The movement is a Cal. 574, which runs at 21,600 bph with a power reserve of up to 40h. The movement is based on the ETA Cal. 2688. The movement actually dates the watch to 1990 so this one is a 28-year old vintage.|

The watch runs well gaining a few seconds per day. It lasts overnight between uses. I haven't really had the chance to time watch so I can't say if it reaches the 40h original power reserve it was supposed to have.
