Okay, so i have to say, that this has to be one of my favorite looking watches, hands down for me.........

the orient saturation diver.....

i remember shop having some of these like a year or so ago, and the big Jim doing a review of it and such, but for some reason I didnt pay attention....maybe it was because of the name, wich for some reason at the time, i didnt think was that great....

anyways....to me, for what i like and am looking for, this is the perfect diver....its big, its heavy, it thick and chunky, has the crown at the 4(wich i love), great dial, great hands, auto......the classic look, I love it all....

problem is the price.... for the price of a new one, I can pick up a used sinn u1.........ive seen these sell on the forums for considerably less, and guess ill just have to save my pennies to get one of these.....

anyways, here it is...

Those are pretty nice.I had one but couldn't get used to the non winding non hacking movement.you can swirl the reserve into it, but really not the same interaction as with a hacking and winding movement.maybe make a list of the dive watches that are that size in that price range? these do show up on wus for about 750 to 800 used. most of them have never been worn either.I can think of about 10 dive watches in that size and price.If you need me to post the list, just ask.

Very nice watch. I got my first Orient this month, not this one, a Mako. I am very pleased with the quality of the watch and the movement keeps incredible time..
