Default First Orient on the way!

Wow, I must be infected with the watch disease! I just pulled the trigger on a Orient Men's FAA02007B9 'Ray II, while I still have a Seiko SNZF17J2 waiting to be delivered. Can only wear one at a time but, I guess I'll get it figured out.

I've been known to carry one in my pocket to wind an automatic that needs it.😁

Well Orient = Seiko so you can't go wrong there. In house movements, underrated but great brand. Good choice!

Orient is a hell of a lot of watch for the money! Enjoy!

Congrats! That's a handsome Orient diver; I've got an Orient Sun & Moon that doesn't see much wrist time these days, but I love it. It's quite a serious condition this watch fever and all here in this forum seem to be carriers. I went from 2 watches to now 15 in 6 months. You'll slow down a bit most likely after you find what really turns your crank aesthetically and you acquire a few that you love. Then you have to make that agonizing decision each morning... "What to wear today?"

Thanks all! I am a little excited for this one to get here. Might be the perfect watch to mod! Not sure yet what I will do with it. Might put a orange/black band on it and just wear it. Oooooh, the possibilities.

Now that's using your head SeikoLuvR ! Now if the one takes
a little longer to arrive, you'll have a back-up. But if they both arrive at

the same time. Or close to it. It will be double the fun ! ..Genius !!!

I see absolutely no hope for you bro!!! If your collecting doesn't intensify I'll
eat my Stetson hat, and give 30 mins to draw up a crowd!!!
You dunnit now!!! One watch grows into many watches.

Yes, it is becoming very hard not to log on and not find myself searching for dive watches and the various bands to collect! I'm up to 4 and just started this literally a month ago.

SeikoLuvR:
Besides watch ownership (36) my other passion is Bluegrass (aka Mountain music)
I've played stand up Bass for over 40 years. Putting watch buying on back burner for
a Martin or Blueridge Dreadnaught accoustic guitar.
Came to the realization I could've bought the finest guitar Martin makes with money
I've spent on watches!!!
1st guitar was a Gibson Archtop, F hole guitar.
