Default Seriously surprised, in an impressed way, Orient!

Just got the Omega Lexington Automatic Day-Date dress watch I picked up on sale for $99 from Island Watch. I'm seriously surprised, in an impressed way. The bracelet isn't the most substantial, but it's decent. But this watch is made by its textured dial and domed mineral crystal. It has a great vintage dress watch vibe about it. WAY more watch for the money than I expected.

Lots of Orient fans here on the forum. Including myself. I own a Saturation Diver and added an after market bracelet. Made a good watch a great watch.

I own a Blue Ray and it is running +5 for the last two years, all this watch would need to become a really serious watch, is a winding, hacking movement, and a sapphire crystal.

Pretty outstanding WTW ! Not only does it evidently have a nice quality feel about it, but the design looks to be exceptional as well. The dial within a dial feel is great, and check out the day, and date complication. You don't see that much ! ..Looks classy, cool, and very comfortable too !!! Can't beat that combo. Huge congratulations WTW !

This watch is begging for some different straps to dress it up, doesn't look right on a bracelet.

Yeah, I don't mind bracelets, but its bracelet is lacking. I may go with a nice auburn leather or something like that.

Or put it on mesh like I did mine, easier to install then another bracelet, very, very comfortable.

Very nice. I'm sure you'll be adding more Orients to the collection. Excellent bang for the buck.

Yep. Still hard to believe the watch you get for that price.
