Orient watches website

Not often I am going to post a direct link to a vendor unless a sale is going on but Orient is owned by a lot of members and for the $$$, a steal IMHO.

Very true, Alain. And OUSA is the only place you can get the new Mako USA. However, a better retailer for Orient in the US is Long Island Watches (OUSA supplies them) as well as Arizona Fine Time--you'll get better service from those guys and the prices are honest, no coupon codes embedded in videos and shit.

Also, for higher end Orient Stars, it's best (right now) to go with a Japanese retailer, because the yen is so weak against the dollar. I use Seiya Japan--if you email him with a particular model he doesn't have on his website, he can usually get it for you--and quote an honest price, which includes shipping. His English is perfect, and shipping from Toyko to here in WA state is usually four days.

I was at AZ Fine Time yesterday. Extremely laid back, pleasant employee, no pressure, no bullshit. An interesting selection of watch brands mixed with a cigar store and smoking bar.

I got my SARB035 Seiko from www.shoppinginjapan.net. they carry all the Japanese brands and have a ton of JDM models. And discontinued models. They did not have this particular Orient Star but it would've been sold out anyways. Shipping was fast, no hang-ups in customs.
