Our latest Name That Watch Contest winner is Ken Winiecki. Ken suggested the name "Orient Classic" for the Orient CEV0900 series (pretty fitting, right?). We sent Ken his own Orient Classic, and he sent us a picture with his newest timepiece as well as a brief statement about his growing interest in Orient automatics.
"I admire Orient for its history, style, quality, and value. I always enjoyed looking at affordable watches and imagining what I'd end up with the next time I needed one. Until a year ago, I never thought it would be an automatic...I just assumed that quality automatics were too expensive. But then I started seeing a surprising number of affordable autos with eye-catching blends of classical and creative style elements, all by this one company with an unfamiliar name: "Orient". Even the logo was intriguing. Further online research revealed how good a company it is, how esteemed its products are, and how well it regards its customers. So last year I bought one (an M-Force). It exceeded my expectations, and continues to do so."
