Old Oris with a moon thing

My wife bought this as an engagement present for me. Wore it religiously for a year, then I became frustrated with the moon phase complication... So much so, off my wrist for for the last 30 years, just pulled it out of my draw, not working but I think I'm more mature now and will give it another go.

This watch does not appear to have a moon phase complication. Are you talking about the pointer date?

I was very young at the time, haven't seen this for a few decades. I'll find out exactly what ref it is and what it actually does. One thing for sure, I think I dropped it last time I wore it and it's not working now. Probably not worth fixing but it is a sentimental thing 馃憤馃従

Looks like small seconds and a pointer date. Shouldn鈥檛 be too hard to set and keep up with. If it鈥檚 entirely broken that鈥檚 a different story, of course.

Interesting that the date runs anticlockwise.

I did a bit of Google image recognition, I think this is the reference. See if I can find a booklet online

It's probably a standard movement so just about any watchmaker should be able to service/find parts for it. You should definitely bring it back to life.

That is a fantastic watch, never seen anything like it. Knowing Oris it is probably a pointer date, counterclockwise is so neat!
