    ORIENT VS. INVICTA > Who Wins?

    ORIENT is now on ShopNBC competing with INVICTA (same price category)

    http://www.shopnbc.com/SearchM/Defau...orient%20watch

    What do you guys think of this? Can the brand make it in the US?

    Orient.

    Does not pretend to be something it's not. It actually has a relatively long and rich history. Also, they get particularly nice as you move onto the japan domestic market orient star/royal lines.

    As for making it in the US. It seems that the public would rather support a company that pretends to be an old swiss family run company (versus the Florida based far east importers they really are). Just my opinion.

    I want to say Orient for all the good WIS reasons, but they just don't excite me.
    Invicta has their share of homages and monstrosities.... but every so often comes out with something I actually like.

    +1 for Orient because of their designs and history

    I sure hope Orient wins.

    I couldn't ever see wearing another Invicta. I'd rather try to build a sundial from a live rattlesnake.

    But hey, if anyone likes them, no offense - to each, his own.

    Orient wins under 300$. But in the 300+ range I have to vote for Invicta because of the Swiss movt. But I am not talking about Orient Star because it takes over Invictas at all price ranges.

    I would have agreed with your assessment of Orient Star a couple of years ago, but not any longer. Orient Star used to be a real bargain compared to the similar looking Orient Star Royal line, but now has gone in a less classy, more kitsch direction. Many of the watches now look "novelty".
