    Hi,

    I doubt it has anything todo with vintage :)
    Looks like recent watch with probably some miyota movement :)

    Does Orient use Miyota movements? Odd since they are owned by Seiko isn't it?

    javaisland,

    For purely comparative purposes:
    Men Orient Quartz Gold Plated Quartz Japan Wrist Watch | eBay

    Retro Chic Beautiful Men's Orient with Citizen Quartz MVMT Fast USA Shipper | eBay

    Orient Quartz Wrist Watch | eBay

    Doesn't seem to be much of a market for similar watches, let alone the $40 asking price for that one. That being said, if it's worth $40 to you, then it's your money.

    I must be wrong here then :) Still do not think one could find some thermo compensated high end quartz in that :D

    Thought so.. that caseback number is for an automatic Orient movement but wrong caseback and certainly not quartz watch.. to me it is a fake Orient..
