    Yep, the bracelet is very basic and with hollow links so it feels light and flimsy. It's also a bit rougher around the edges than I expected. However, it is comfortable. The dial is really nice on this one, good detail and dainty looking hands.

    This is my first Orient and I've found the auto windup very efficient compared to my Swiss. I wore it 6 hours and left it over 24 hours on the dresser and it was still running. Normally after a short wear like that, my watch runs out around 12-16 hours later.

    Mine didn't smell of garlic. That is funny!

    Thanks - that post is actually what inspired my own post! If anyone were to make an atomic submariner, casio would be it for sure!

    Stupid question: How does one find post 961? Every time I select a page that should be in range, the posts are renumbered starting at 1. Is there a forum setting I need to change?

    I want to see this Casio!

    I have no affiliation with the seller, but I just ordered one to review for this thread since it is an update on my favorite <$100 Sub Homage: the 8926c (Miyota movt.)
    Can you hand wind and hack this version of the Seiko NH25A movement?
    The MTG is retired and the 5600 too. Right now, the only working G-Shocks that I use and enjoy are the Riseman GW9200-1 and the GW6900-1

    If I can own a Rolex Submariner I would. I know they are tough too, their homages are tough. Trust me.

    Neither. Just like most entry level Seiko automatics.

    I thought so. Thank you. I was double checking my research on the watch. I hope to get mine soon. The Rolex Submariner look has always been my favorite look. It is so simple, functional, rugged, and nice looking, but I can't afford one, and in this day and age. It is very dangerous to own a Rolex Submariner in public unless you put it on a Nato strap or something not so noticeable.

    Oh, but you can quick set the date though, right?
