I just posted this in the Japanese watch forum, and thought I would post it here too since there's not much floating around about the 200m divers.
Hey hey, So I have sized the bracelet and I've been wearing the new Orient Star Revolver for a little while now.
This thing has some real wrist presence. The bezel really attracts attention to the watch and I know that many people have negative opinions of the bezel...
I think the bezel is fantastic! It has a great feel, 60 clicks, and the markers line up very well. The bezel really isn't as overpowering in person as it seems to be in pictures. That being said, I do know that it is a deal breaker for many people. Then again, so is the Tuna's bezel, but I also love that one.
The watch is a little top heavy because of the thinness of the bracelet. It uses split pins, so resizing was a snap. The clasp is nice, but not as nice as the one on the Seiko BFK.
The black areas on the bezel seem to love fingerprints and the crystal loves lint. The hand and dial work are very nice. The metal outlines on the hour markers and hour and minute hands are very nicely done.
I love the yellow accents on the watch with the second hand and "200m" text on the dial. The yellow really makes the dial pop.
The movement is smooth and the power reserve indicator is really cool. The winding efficiency of this watch is phenomenal. One minute worth of gentle swirling will bring the power reserve up to 40 Hours from 0.
I love that Orient has done its own thing with the design of these divers. The date window at the 9:00 position along with the power reserve indicator make this watch fun to look at.
The lume is nice, not quite Seiko level, but still good.
Overall, I am very pleased with this new addition! I'll post more after I have spent more time with this fine Orient!
