Congrats! Will you keep the bracelet on, or experiment?
Probably for awhile.
I have a straight black nato floating around as well I was going to use on my mako 2 but will roll with this for awhile.

this is my current orient cache

That is crazy how fast it got to you honestly Mike. Crazy cool ! :cool: :D

You know, it's really something too how we were just looking at the
new Black Bay Ceramic, and this has a similar vibe actually. 😮😎
The finish is so rich, along with stealthy looking, and these multiple
chameleon-like finishes happening as well. On the bracelet, and
case, it's this terrific brushed finish. ..Then, there's the bezel having
a gorgeous shiny appearance which reminds you of ceramic !

Even the dial is like a window into an abyss of awesomeness Mike.
And it's great seeing it next to your other Orients by the way ! Wow,
it is the Magnicent Three ! Keep on enjoying, and a GIANT congrats !!!

Thanks Tom! Yeah it's cool coincidence. Been looking at these Raven's for awhile.

It's not as 'black' as the Tudor, or even the Seiko divers like the SRPB's.
It's more of a gunmetal finish that I really like. has more 'depth' to it.

Gonna leave it on the bracelet for awhile, but it does seem to be screaming for a black nato!

You are very welcome ! :)

Yeah, and what's great, is this beauty cost quite a bit less than the Tudor,
yet looks just a mean, and just a nice Mike. 😎🥇And the finish really is
exceptional with that gunmetal like you said. It brings that depth, and
even more character overall. Just is beautiful, and looks fantastic in any
form sir. But yeah, am imagining it on that NATO, or any NATO actually. 😉

I hope this one gets a bunch of wrist time !

Ooh nice Mike ! o_O:D Check out the dial texture !!! 🤯

That is too good, and love the way it plays off of that stealthy
finish you talked about before. With the gunmetal hue not only
looking beautiful, but also allowing you to enjoy the brushing
that is actually on the steel. 😉🥇Awesome Mike !

Thanks so so much for the look !!!

Think I prefer a nato to the bracelet on this.

It certainly looks awesome Mike, that is for sure ! o_O:cool:

The NATO brings in a sportier, as well as cool tactical feel to the watch
I think. Man oh man, that neat finish opens up so many windows strap
wise, it's incredible ! 😯🤯(y)(y) There seriously are no limits of possible
combinations for this Orient, and this first one is already outstanding to
be honest sir ! ..Hope you keep on enjoying !!!

Holy cow Mike, had thought the other NATO was outstanding, along
with perfect, but this one is awesome, and makes the watch hit on
all cylinders now ! :D:cool: ..Holy cowza, don't think it could get any
more perfect a match, or look any cooler really. And can imagine it
is getting more than a few looks during that walk. (y)(y)

Boy oh boy, nice work Mike, and Eric too !! 😀😀🥇🥇

A COLOSSALLY cool congratulations there !!!
