Well I am so pleased with this Orient watch , was not sure about the brand. But after reading on the watch websites that their Marko diver watch was a good watch, took a chance on this one. It's a nice size not too big , but manly and heavy enough to know you are wearing a divers watch. It has a screw down crown and also a screw down day change pusher. Found this a nice touch. The strap is a typical metal strap, tough with safety clap and dual push unlock buttons , with a nicely engraved Orient logo. The colour is not a searing or " corvette "yellow , but a solid pale yellow ....very nice and different. You can wear this for any occasion. The numbers are easy to read and the illumination is almost at the same level as the seiko ...with a illuminated top pointer in the directional bezel ( which gives a solid click ). Time keeping is very good , better than i expected with the usual 48hrs reserve. Cannot fault this watch for it's price. Looking forward to my next Orient watch.
