Orient Symphony

Post by koimaster » November 22nd 2017, 4:25pm

On a whim I picked this up at Massdrop to see what an affordable Orient watch was like. Not something I will keep but for the $$$ should be interesting to see what you get. Really looking for a JDM Seiko SARB065 but geez those are a pain to find with the right movement in them.

There are two movements in the SARB065? Or are you referring to the new Cocktail time models?


I have this one

I shall look forward to your impressions. From what I can see, there ain't nothing wrong with this watch.
My little brain can't even comprehend how deep that is.

Or virtually every Orient, for that matter - with the notable exception of the "Three Star" series, which is to 2017 what Cantinflas is to cutting-edge comedy.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster
