I'm loving that dial. Bezel's nice and chunky too. Really like that classic diver meets new school look. Congrats. I have to start looking into Orients.

Thanks!! Great description! This model is unbelievable. Make sure you use a coupon code and get 50 percent off retail if you get one. Makes it worth it and a lot of watch for the money!!

Congrats on your Orient, it's sweet! I dig the bezel too.

My recent Orient Star has been the best finished watch I've had in a long time.

I'm back to the Orient page now, so thanks and enjoy!

Congrats! How does this watch compare to your Seiko 600m Spring Drive as far as size, weight, and quality?

Really like those... Did you use a coupon code or are they having one of those sales?

Thanks!! It is every bit as nice as my 600m Spring Drive. Big time heavy watch! The 600m is Titanium so it is really light. If it were not for the 600m Spring Drivemeaning a lot to me herritage wise being part Japanese, I would like the Orient just the same. Although the the movement in the Seiko Spring Drive is like silk! The Seiko 600m is a little taller at 17mm. I ecpected the 600m to be awesome but did not have the same expectations for the Orient and I am blown away by the quality!

Yes they have a 50 percent coupon on them right now called "dapperedfebruary" When they sent me the coupon, I just had to try it and I am glad I did. I have it on right now and it is a perfectly balanced watch while being very heavy.

Congratulations: It's a stunner. Just finished watching the review on Youtube. That's a very big watch. Just to big for me. I'm trying to stay 42 or 43mm case size in 2012. Orient makes great watches. I own the M-Force. The accuracy on the Orient Movements are fantastic. Wear the Saturation Diver with a big grin on your face. It's a beauty.

I have had this on my radar for a year. I have not bought a watch for 10 months because this in black is the one I want. I'm glad I did not buy it a year ago even though it was $900 with 50% off. That model was the shacker and non hackable. The new movement is worth the extra $175. I have sold 8 watches and want to sell another 40 and have about 4 to five automatics of this quality and looks. I have decided on quality vs quantity. Congrats on getting such an awesome timepiece.
