Hey Guys, I have been off the forums for a while, a long while actually, and believe it or not I haven't bought a watch since last year. I'm on the hunt again for more Orients. Some time last year, I was able to find one more of these rare beauties out in the wild, so I pulled the trigger, and now its mine! The Orient Mach 7 (in silver dial)! I haven't been to the forum in a while...well except to peek in and such. I'd like to spend more time in here again, and with that said, I wanted to share with you my joy over this gorgeous Orient Mach 7 100M Auto CET0B001W, part of Orient's great and hugely popular "Multi-Eyes" Series. The watch is awesome in every respect, and I actually found this one in a tiny little jewelry shop on the streets of NYC. And not too surprisingly, it was the only Orient in the shop. :)

The dial is so beautifully silver! The red accents really stand out! And one of my favorite things about the watch is the massive, 24mm, non-tapering, brushed & high-polished, solid end-link bracelet!

Let me show you what's under the hood of this massive watch: the Orient in-house, Japan-made, Caliber 46B40.
Notice how the movement is surrounded by a stainless steel retaining ring...that's right...steel, not plastic!

Don't know much about Orient as a brand, but this watch is certainly a looker. Congratulations on a great and beautiful find!

Can't beat Orient in my opinion best automatics in the universe for the price point.

Let me introduce you to the Mako twins.

This pic should show you exactly how robust this watch is! Solid end links, solid bracelet, screw-in caseback (no glass). Just a beast of a watch!
