What can I say I love it. It is a very "deep" dial with a lot of detail. I happen to like the color combination. The second hand is actually fluorescent green/yellow and is hard to capture in photos. The semi-skeleton dial speaks for itself. While I have no clue how to use the slide rule I think it adds a sporty look to the semi-dressy watch. The power reserve gauge is awesome and is a handy feature when rotating often.
The case sides, back, crown, and stationary bezel are all highly polished SS. It adds a very dressy look and presents a little "bling" factor if that is what you fancy. I feel this allows the watch to be worn with just about anything.
High fit and finish. Very smooth screw down crowns. The sapphire crystal peaks out over the top of the stationary bezel. Sapphire crystal is on top AND bottom with an internal AR coat on the top crystal. While this AR coating works well, the sapphire is flat so reflections can be dominant outside in the sun. However, at certain angles both in and outside, the crystal seems to disappear.
The movement is decorated and very viewable even from the front. This watch charges like no other auto I have seen and takes about a half day of regular wearing to fully charge. The rotor moves so easily that once discharged, just picking it up starts it again.
I really like the comfort of this watch. It is the largest watch I own, but wears very nicely. I have very small wrists (6.5") and after removing 3 links it sits perfectly balanced.
It is a mixture of brushed and polished solid links. Sporty, but at the same time somewhat dressy. I have to add that this bracelet is extremely quiet. There is almost zero rattle.
I have no issue with arm hair pulling. If you are familiar with the watchadoo, the Orient bracelet is not near as smooth/rounded on the edges, but I have no issues.
The clasp is nice...it's insides are highly polished. The Orient logo looks nice as well.
I am really liking my first Orient a lot. I never knew this company even existed 6 months ago and this certainly will not be my only Orient watch.
Accuracy so far set to atomic clock 48 hours ago: +7 sec. Very nice.
Lume (on the hands and at the 12 o'clock marker) lasts all night albeit nothing like a Seiko diver in it's intensity. And because the that lume is the only lume remaining lit, it is easy to read on it's black background.
This is my first attempt at a review and hope it informs well. Thanks WUS for giving me the opportunity to do something like this!
