Default Review of Orient "Tangle" EZAB4W0

Although English is not my native tongue, I'll try to write a review of my newly acquired Orient watch.


I bought it 03/2010 via the Internet from a german dealer. Most of all I was attracted by its shape, plus I was looking for a watch with a white or silver dial. I wanted it to be different from my black Seiko 5, and this one is indeed different in shape and colour.

The facts:

Brand: Orient

Model number: EZAB4W0

Official model name: Tangle

Movement: Orient Automatic Movement 46J(EZ), 23 jewels

Face:

This watch has a silver dial with single baton index markers (except for the 12) and a textured surface. There are 3 sub-dials for seconds (6), date (9) and power-reserve (12) with radial -patterned texture, setting off a slightly “holographic” effect. The hands are made of chromed metal, deteriorating readability somewhat, but not overly so. No lume, neither on the dials nor on the hands. In order to read off the date, you have to have 20/20 vision or a good magnifying glass

Case:

The shape of this all stainless steel watch is what the French call a “tonneau”. The dimensions are 46mm lug to lug, 36mm wide and 10mm thick with 18mm lug width. Quite big, but because of its oblong shape it hardly shows. The snap-in case back is also stainless steel with - alas - no window. It is rated to 50 meters, so it should stay away from greater amounts of water. The very handy crown is at the 3 position and not screwed-down.

Crystal:

Slightly dome-shaped Hardlex-crystal that provides a minimal magnifying glass effect.

Bracelet:

Solid stainless-steel bracelet composed of polished and brushed elements. Unfortunately it is too small for my arm (20,5cm equ. 8in), so I had to order an additional element. Double butterfly with push-buttons.

Special features:

Power reserve indicator, sub seconds, date on sub-dial, quick-set date, automatic movement.

Opinions/recommendations:

I like this watch very much. It has a very solid feeling about it, weighing 140g (5oz). Its accuracy of +5 sec./day is extraordinary for a mechanical movement. Suits all kinds of outfit, looks all but ordinary.


Thank you for your attention.

Kind regards

Seikovnik
