Orient Star GMT DJ00001B

Post by koimaster » May 6th 2019, 10:14am

Visited Big Time yesterday, it’s my first time there, so I was there with my family, wanted to visit them for the longest time, yet couldn’t find the time to be there.

Nice to see a display of Seiko JDMs, Tunas and all the Orients and Orient Stars in the same place. My wife wanted to get a gift for me, so we were browsing around and I wanted to look at the Orient Stars that was posted recently by chris and eventually a few pieces caught my eye.

Wife suggested the M-Force but I didn’t like the design and it’s kinda light for it’s size. Tried the Orient Stars but I prefer my dress watches to be on leather as the bracelet makes the watch looks small, then finally… the GMT or they called it the Starseeker.

I went on about this being the newer GMT model, although it was launched more than a year ago. Yeoman’s review on it:http://yeomanseiko.com/2011/09/10/orient-star-gmt-dj00001b/

I had the chance to handle one in Japan, 3 years ago but it was the older model, the GMT hand was not independent. This however is, hand winding, hacking with a independent GMT hand. Basically like a ETA 2893 movement.

After handling it for a while, my mind is set, this is it.

Oh yeah. Cracking choice :okk:
Meritocracy: the privilege, wealth and advancement of those who chose their parents wisely.
Capitalism: a cult that promised to do good for the worst reasons.
Nationalism: a profound longing to go back to a past that never existed.

One of the best GMT models out there. Color my fat ass green.
