I've been "chrono crazy" lately and wanted a smaller and elegant watch that looks great with either a dress shirt or polo. I'm a big fan of Orient watches (I have a Pepsi Mako and Duty) and came across the "Golden Eye." I was impressed with the dial, semi skeleton, gold indices, and most importantly, the sapphire crystal. After some searching, I was able to get a great deal on one.
I got this guy yesterday and am really impressed, again, by Orient's offerings. Though it has a classic and restrained look, it stands out nicely due to the open-heart and gold indices. Very smooth second hand sweep. The band has a brushed and polished stainless links. At this price point, you can't expect a butterfly clasp and overall, the band is nice but nothing to write home about.
The display back is nice to have and Orient made an effort to dress up this movement. They're not known for the nicest looking automatic movements, but they're bullet proof and reliable. However, the open-heart part of the movement is nicely polished and looks great tickin.'
You've also have the nice little touch of a gold plated crown with engraved logo along with the logo on the clasp.
Overall, it's a great price and very elegant watch!
