Default Orient M-Force 200m Air Diver.. WV0011EL





















Lume shots..

Self-winding & Hand-winding movement
Self-winding movement
Enhanced shock proof
22 jewels
21600/hour vibrations
Power reserve indicator, Date indicator
Stainless steel case and bracelet
One-way rotating bezel

Water resistant to 200m
(Certificated by ISO 6425 diver’ s watches, ISO 764 antimagnetic watches and ISO 1413 shock-resistant watches)

Despite the size and heft of this watch it sits very comfortably on the wrist, even my small one. It doesn't leave you feeling as if you have been lifting weights all day as some other watches do. The bracelet is wide enough to help with this. For those that have worn an Orient Beast you will know what I mean by this as the bracelet on the Beast, in my opinion, was not wide enough for the size of the watch.

The bracelet is made of solid links and is attached to the watch using wide spring bars. The end links are not solid and there is not divers extension on the clasp, but I don't believe this detracts from the watch, as if I was going diving with it, I would put it on a rubber or silicon strap. Uses the same pin and collrs as the Seiko Monster bracelet.

The lume is good and lasts all night. Maybe not on a par with the Seiko Monster, but good enough for the job.

As with all the newer Orient automatics, this one has hacking and handwinding. A useful feature and it is nice to see the Power Reserve indicator moving towards 40 as you wind the ultrasmooth mechanism.

The bezel is easy to rotate but not as free as the Orient Star Revolver. It is unidirectional and has 120 clicks.

A recommended buy.

Thanks for the great review!
Looking to get one of these - how does the bracelet feel? Is it as bad as some of the other reviews I've read?

Thanks

Default Alternate strap options

Thanks for the great review. I purchased this watch recently and would like some recommendations on possible strap options. The 23mm lug width makes it a bit challenging so any guidance would be appreciated.

Some are now referring to that model as the Beast, but the other one I showed was the original Beast..

...
Can you please tell, what is the weight of watch head alone, without strap/bracelet.

Thank you.

Nice review. The M force with red dial is incredible, but the size is big for me ...

Great review. Probably the most underrated (and under the radar) dive watch out there. Bought a new blue dial M Force a year ago. Rotate it with my other watches and it still averages about +5 seconds a day. For someone that wants a high quality dive watch that's a little different, this is the one.
