Turns out there is a nice gasket inside the bezel... never seen that before. Under water the bezel turns much easier. Interestingly the crown is the easiest, smoothest turning/screwing crown in my collection... much better feel than my Grand Seiko and Rolex... even more impressive knowing Orient is known for its sub par crown action, frequently with a gritty screw response and frail feel.

    Just yesterday I came across some links to Japanese websites still selling black and white dial OSDs, but ranging in price from $1300-$1600, quite a bit more than when they were available in the US.

    The bezel insert is ceramic coated metal (probably aluminum).

    Re: Orient Saturation Diver - Discontinued?

    I have owned possibly every diver tool watch under $2.5K and the OS-300 white dial is one of my all-time favorites. I picked one up last week from another forum user in mint condition. The only thing that needs to be worked on is it is gaining +30 seconds every 24-hours which is annoying. I'll get it regulated shortly. Otherwise really liking this watch. I have it mounted on a Steinhart 5mm rubber strap on a Dievas deployant (sinn style) that I picked up a few years ago.

    I'm going to be really unhappy if these are discontinued. I wonder what they would replace it with?

    If there is a weakness it is timekeeping... mine loses 20 spd... and had sent it back to Orient to be regulated... within a couple of months it was back to 10 spd slow and a few years later now back to -20spd. Now I typically set it 1 minute fast, wear it 3 days then put it back in my watch box for another month. Still love it though.

    The crown action on the Blue Beast, which has the exact same movement only positioned differently in the case, is nowhere near as convincing as the crown on the OSD. I love mine and will keep it forever. Looks great on a grey NATO.

    These have always been on the "must have" list. I'm curious to see if they have been discontinued.

    Looks Invicta-ish, but could be a fun watch if the price is right. How much does it go for in Brazil? And I see that it is called Neptuno, basically another name for Poseidon. Does the Milanese style mesh bracelet take fat spring bars?
