If I may chime in on this...You read a lot of complaints about the Orient logo. My theory is that people are basing these on extreme close-up shots of the dial. In person, the logo is tiny. The red is but a speck of color and the lions (or whatever they are) are barely distinguishable.
It's still too big / too nasty. I almost bought a Mako. Couldn't pull the trigger. Didn't want to look at that logo too much every day.
It's a funny thing, it just cheapens the watch for me. A shame, as Orient make some genuinely lovely watches. I own a modded one, great movement, very accurate. I just can't get over the logo.
The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom
The Prospex logo doesn't bother me on either watch, the older Sumo with the multitude of fonts bothered me more!
I feel so alone in actually liking the new Prospex logo =(
