    Vintage? Orient

    Morning all, I posted this over on the Orient forum but thought it might be of interest over here too?
    Here's a link to the thread and a wrist shot pic;

    Cool. There aren't that many Orients about in the UK. Its in astonishingly good condition.

    It seems to me that your collection is growing pretty rapidly stefano34. How many have you got now?

    Hi Marrick, yes it looks pretty mint to me though there is a slight bend/mark in the lower endlink you can hardly notice it but I know its there...I dont like the bracelet as its a bit tinny so I am looking to replace it with a more chunky 'retro' one if I can find one.
    I reckon there are now 21 in wearable condition and around 6 or 7 needing minor repair/parts when I can find them..simple repairs (ie I can do them) like replacing the balance, fitting new pallet lever stem crown etc...all the intensive complicated stuff goes to the mender for now, though I am preparing to work on a Valjoux 7734 very soon.
