Nice looking watch, I think it should be ok after some oil, these 7 jewel movements are mostly pretty robust. I tried some graphite oil on one of my 1 jewel watches that was stuck by ways of under lubrication, I manually assisted the watch and oiled it at the same time, now it's ticking strongly. I also use an ultrasound cleaner on pin movements and oiled them up afterwards they normally always spring to life. Of course Jeweled watches are a bit different ... not my speed, I can't always keep track of the bits, my eyes are not what they used to be...loop helps but has very narrow Field of view, things drop outside of that zone normally and then it's back to feel for it...lol
Anyhow enough rambling... I like the Dial on your watch has a nice color.

actually the movement is a pin lever movement from the looks of it. Just an upgraded one to 7 jewels

Oris is a specialist in pin levers. The Swiss watch monopoly years ago had directed them to a lower end of the market by confining them to pin levers. So Oris just perfected them into decent time keepers!

Have fun finding a strap! Non-standard bracelet/strap attachments are the bane of collectors...

I like the look of that :)

As for the strap......are those just plain pins sticking out.....are they 'sprung'??

It looks like it would have some kind of clip on bracelet maybe, but it's not something I've seen before, so I'm going to wish you the best of luck coming up with something to fit that ;-)
