pretty safe design there.
it specs out nice for under $300.

this is very similar to many microbrand offerings at half the price.

In my country, Orient is a relatively small and less known brand. Some still remember them from their relatively gaudy dials in the Seventies. With that big, gold applied Orient logo.

These watches are a complete different kettle of fish. Very recommendable as a fine starter watch for a collector or as single watch for those who want a reliable and well built sports watch.

Hey don't mention it. ..The real thanks goes to YOU guys !

Really is something how impressive Orient has become like you
guys are saying, and how much bang for the buck the watches
seem to give you. Love how they always seem to be adding
a new watch, or collection into the mix lately also. It's fun to see,
and tough trying to pick which is the nicest new design. Plus you
still have all of their classic lines.

So happy that all of you enjoyed these !

Now that would really be something Art, and fit perfectly into your
collection there ! ..By the way, don't, or didn't mean to tempt
you in any way. Just am reporting the news on these.


So glad you like them though !

terms to peak your spending interests like "Comfortably Priced" or "affordably
priced" at........?

That is something to see Mrs Wiggles ! ..You can tell that
this red has to be unbelievable in person. Because it is really
putting on a show in just your fantastic picture here !

Almost looks like there are multiple reds, from lighter to kind
of a crimson. Just is stunning ! ..Thank you !

After all these years, I've finally decided to give an Orient a try. The result was that I bought two more within a week, Two Bambino's, Gen II and Gen IV. And a Defender field watch. But the Divers don't reach out to me like these others have. Maybe I just have to many divers. They look to ordinary to me.

You could try one of these next, the multiyear. It come on a rather horrible bracelet, which I replaced with this hand made red leather strap.

Dial is to busy on that one for me. Besides, I already have two Perpetual Calendars. Thanks for the referral though. Enjoy that one.
