Orient Kamasu Diver

"As our longtime readers are aware, WWR’s mission is all about covering the great affordable watches that are out there. In that arena, there are brands that immediately come to mind, and then there are others that are dismissed over overlooked. I’m not sure which camp you, dear reader, put Orient into, but they are definitely making solid watches at nice price points. While they’ve got plenty of popular models in their lineup, they’re now introducing some new ones. Just last week they unveiled the Orient Kamasu, their newest dive watch.

What is a kamasu, you ask? Well, apparently (as I don’t speak Japanese) it is the Japanese word for barracuda. And yes, I’ve now got that song stuck in my head, complete with galloping guitar line. But I digress – I like that song, and I think something like a barracuda is a great name to tie to a dive watch. Translating it into another language, well, that makes things a bit more subtle. And, with the Orient Kamasu coming in at 41.8mm and just 12.8mm thick, it is indeed subtle, as far as dive watch dimensions go."
