I'm new to the forum and I'm also new to being a watch entheist. it was actually a fossil grant automatic I received as a gift that sparked my interest. I started doing research and learned about quality of movements. After researching and finding this forum I want to purchase my first "real" watch. I decided after researching that I want to start with a Orient, they seem to be a good bang for your buck watch, with a good in house movement. I'm looking to wear the watch casually but I also want to be able to dress it up on going out occasions. I'm having a hard time deciding between the Orient golden eye and the Orient Ray in blue. Both would be on a bracelet. I know leather is more appropriate for dress, but I live in Florida, so leather isn't real efficient here.. I need some advice from you watch experts, I've found a new love in watches and want to make my first step in the right direction. Thanks so much!
