Accurate, Attractive, and Hand-Built
"I enjoy the quality of this watch. Many makers seek small fortunes for their watches. I understand the pursuit and desire of accuracy. But at what cost? My entire income. This watch is accurate to within seconds each day. The design is attractive and the quality is comparative. This watch is hand-built and fairly priced. Thank you for this beautiful timepiece. I will enjoy it for years."
Solid Build, Movement, and Unique Look
"The watch is attractive and bold in style, and is eye-catching. The band and face look and feel high quality and the design of the face is imaginative and unique. The 46mm size is properly shown in the large expanded face of the watch...The hour and minute hands are decent sized swords, and the second hand is a nifty little orange needle. There are Arabic numerals on the face for a few numbers and hash marks for the rest. The watch can look dressy, especially with its black or white faces...
The neatest thing about this [watch] is watching the sweep of the second hand. The watch mainspring beats 6 times per second (21,600 bph), and the second hand has 6 distinct stops between each marked second on the face. This slow majestic sweep is far more elegant than the clunk-ka-chunk precise, once per second movement of a quartz analog. The back of the watch is an "exhibition" design, which shows the movement inside...
...The watch itself is superbly made. Everything feels solid, from the bracelet to the crown to the bezel. There is an Orient logo on the face and on the bracelet that is not problematic due to its subtlety. This doesn't look like its namesake Omega, but the aesthetic is as good or better, and the level of quality is immensely impressive given the price. Most observers will think this watch costs three or more time more than its actual price due to the level of fit and finish realized."
Water Resistant, Affordable, and High-Quality
"I had been researching automatics for the past few years [because] I love automatics. The only thing that was holding me back was the price and quality of some of the autos out there. The Invictas out there are okay, but not as high quality as Orients. I bought this model a few months back and let me tell you I am now a huge fan of Orient. I will be getting another Orient in another style when my budget allows... Do not hesitate on this watch, you will not be disappointed. F.Y.I. I have showered and swam with this watch with full confidence. It is a sweet watch."
