A small tribute to my Oris BC3

Well not really a tribute but more of some shots of the Oris BC3 movement before it went High Mech with the red rotor. The BC 3 is from the time Oris was reintroducing the brand into the market. 

The case back. It has a display back where you can admire the Oris 635 automatic movement. The inside of the case back looks like a compressor case back with the crinkle washer. 

A closer view of the crinkle washer. The function of the washer is to hold the metal movement holder/ spacer in place. 

The Oris 635 automatic movement. You can see the metal movement spacer around the movement. 

A closer view of the movement. The basic specifications:

Oris 635, base ETA 2836-2
Size: 11 1/2 ligne
Functions: hours, minutes, seconds, day and date, hacking, day and date quickset
Winding: automatic, bi-directional
Power reserve: 38 hours
Jewels: 25
Vibrations: 28,800 A/h

I have always like the Oris. It will be missed.
