    Orient Orange Mini-Beast 2EX0100CM0 Review

    This is the Orient 2EX0100CM0, also known as the Orient Mini-Beast.













    Specifications:
    Movement: 46G41 21 Jewels
    Screw-down crown
    Display caseback
    Inner rotating calendar ring
    Power Reserve Indicator
    Unidirectional Rotating Outer Bezel

    As you can see from the photos, like most Orients this one has a wonderful textured dial. The calendar ring is adjusted using the crown at 4 o'clock. This allows other days of the month to be seen at a glance. The date is set using the pusher at 2 o'clock.

    It is a very comfortable watch to wear and keeps accurate time. The leather strap is well made and has a signed buckle.

    I particularly like the way the parts of the case and bezel have been polished as highlights against a brushed case.

    Recommended.

    Just got mine in. First impressions:

    A little smaller than I expected.
    Good lume.
    Neat dial.
    Strap is meh.
    Nice heft.

    Overall, for the price I paid, not bad.
