Wow, talk about bang for your buck. Came across this on sale for $320 and immediately made the purchase. I’ve normally seen this hovering around the $500 mark.
So this is a new Orient diver that is quite evidently a “mini” or “baby” Saturation Diver with a lot of the same design cues as that behemoth. It’s about 43.5mm in diameter and still quite thick, but it’s noticeably smaller and lighter than the Orient flagship. And truthfully, it’s damn near as nice.
I would put this right around Sumo level, maybe slightly less impressive finish but definitely the same level of overall execution. The dial and bezel are just fantastic. However, the bracelet is rather “meh” but the lugs/end links look good.
