Default Vintage ORIS Frankenstein??

Just getting into this whole watch collecting hobby, don't have the money to go luxury. But I don't want to accidentally buy any fake watches just because I can't pay big money. So I found this mechanical 7 jewels Oris Vintage watch online that I like the clean look of it. Seller based in London and claims it is from the 1970s, does anyone know if this is a legitimate piece? The case back looks odd to me, a Frankenstein watch?

Not sure it's fake, but only 7 jewels? Maybe they did make 7 jewel movements? Seems low to me but I'm no expert.

There seem to be a few missing screws on the movement? I wonder if that was added later.
Here is a lovely Enicar I bought from YBL in China for $50. Just look at that movement.
Keeps time +6 s/day.
Watch out for Indian Enicar watches, I haven't seen any that are original.
