I saw this watch in a YouTube video by a gentleman who normally makes motorcycle films, Stuart Fillingham.
I was unaware of the brand at that time though I knew of Orient. After taking a closer look at the watch on the site of the UK importer ( TUS watch's) I was most impressed with the spec and price.
Now I am no way am expert in movement's and the finer points of watch construction but from the images and the review Stuart gave of this piece I was tempted to give it a closer look.
So after a day or two of prevarication I hit the order button on the basket I had filled a couple days previously.
The guys at TUS were really helpful with my order and the delivery was very quick. It was very nicely packaged and wrapped up as a gift.
On first inspection the watch is really impressive beautifully finished and at 41 mm has a good wrist presence on my 6 3/4 inch wrist. It's at the top end of size but wears very nicely.
It comes on a leather strap with a deployant clasp which is nice, though I have currently got it on a brown leather strap with buckle closure. Though the lugs are 21mm the starp is a 22 mm and it fits just fine.
As I said I'm not really an expert about the movement which I believe is an in house item but do far after 3 months or so seems very accurate and quite.
I was just drawn to the asthetic of this piece and love it's simple layout and striking hand design.
It's lume is excellent and it's fast become a favourite of my rotation. The case is very nicely finished with a mix of polished surface's and brushed to give it a pop of brightness yet remaining practical and not to showy.
It's a very comfortable watch for my bony wrist too.
One thing I wasn't really sure about at first was the power indicator on the dial, however I have found it more useful than I thought it was initially and actually find it's a great addition. The only piece I have with this complication but probably not the last. It also opened my eyes to other Orient products and I have a Bambino lined up for a first dress watch maybe next year.
