[color=darkslategray]This Orient is of a class all by itself. It is large, it is bold, and it is HEAVY---about 195 grams.

[color=darkslategray]The individual links are very heavy, but their contour design is such that it wraps around your wrist. The dial is so beautiful, that you cannot stop looking at it.

[color=darkslategray]The 24 hour indicator, day wheel, red-tipped pointed with luminous tip are superbly done---and very pleasing to the eye (at least mine). The 24 hour indicator has such a well done inner ring; and the chapter ring is perfect.

[color=darkslategray]The metal indices reflect the light wonderfully, and adds to this watch's ability to enchant its owner.
[color=darkslategray]The movement is Orient's in-house 46B40, made in Japan, and the newer release of their original classic Caliber 46B.

[color=darkslategray]The buckle is huge, a diver's style, is signed, but the watch is not a diver's watch; the crown is a screw-down crown, and is signed, and at the 4 o'clock position, with crown guards. The bracelet is a 24mm heavyweight.

[color=darkslategray]The weak spots: the lume on the indices is poor; the lume on the hands is better; the date window is small, but it's nice at the 6 o'clock position.
[color=#2f4f4f]

[color=#2f4f4f]All in all, I cannot believe that Orient can produce a watch of this quality and caliber at that selling price of $168.00. I truly believe that a Swiss watch with these features would run at least $400-$600.00.

[color=#2f4f4f][img]

[color=#2f4f4f]Once again, Orient has produced a winner.
