    Re: Orient M-Force 2012

    Thank you for creating this thread!

    This Orient is on my list for this year's acquisition. I'm waiting for its official release in my country, since importing watches nowadays is a big pain in the butt, so I tend to do so only when there's no other recourse, like in JDM diver's and other micro brands. But Orient has a strong operation here, and practically all the new diver's are being launched locally, except for the 300m line - which is not a problem for me, since I already own a few of them! :P

    But this new installment of the M-Force is outstanding, and like I said I'll buy one. So here are a few questions:

    - What's the exact lug size? I really hope it's not an odd measurement, like 21mm or 23mm. I'm really hoping it's a standard 22mm or in a worst case scenario, 24mm;

    - What's the diameter w/ and w/o crown, from 9 to 3 position?

    - Is the bracelet solid links with SEL lug ends?

    - How's the few of the watch, overall? What's your opinion about it, quality wise? From a 0 to 10 graduation, how would you rate it?

    Thanks a lot for your views, in advance!
    Looking forward to them.

    Rgds,
    CHRIS
    U lookin' at me?

    Hi Chris,

    Exact lug size is 24mm

    End links are solid (see picture)

    From a 0 to 10 graduation I would say 9

    The general quality of the watch is very good.

    Here you have some new pics and dimensions

    Great looking watch, congrats. I've been tempted by this one, but not sure I can deal with the crown at 9:00. That never looks quite right to my eye.

    That translates into 7.5" for those still on the "English" system. Looks like it would probably work fine on a 7-1/4" wrist, maybe a 7" if you have pretty flat wrists. The critical dimension is the 53mm lug to lug. I've found 53mm is the absolute maximum I can wear with my 7" to 7-1/4" wrists.
