    Orient SK Diver Retro - Talk Me Out of It.

    A horrible folded link bracelet, pathetic lume and only 50 meters of water resistance for a diver. But I love that vintage asymmetrical case. It's super affordable and, to an extent, you get what you pay for in this case but I keep staring at it and, as I understand it, they'll only be offering these until around March of next year. For some reason I love this watch and I need good excuses to cross it off my list. And discuss.

    That bracelet looks like a jangly, tinny mess but I really like the case! :)

    Probably a case of nice from afar, but far from good. Wait untill you get it, it will not get any wrist time.

    if 50m and diver in the same sentence don't talk you out of it, nothing can.

    I think they look awesome TBH, although I'd prefer the blue.

    The one weak spot is the bracelet, although that's obvious. They went intentionally retro, and the problem is that it's an 18mm lug w/ flared bracelet. You pretty much have to live with the bracelet as-is because putting an 18mm strap on that would look silly.

    Otherwise, go for it and tell us what you think.

    I usually agree with your choices, but this thing is ugly and the quality looks awful. The 50m "diver" is the icing on the cake.

    This would be a hard pass for me. I'd rather put the money towards a vintage-inspired Dan Henry or a legit vintage diver.

    The overall look is retro-cool. The bracelet deal-kills it. If someone is mod-mad then a 22 mm bracelet could be notched down to 18 mm end lugs.

    Your’re on your own with the watch head but the bracelet looks like it could be a bit of a hair grabber. Just FYI Jason, that’s me clutching at straws. TBH, if you like it then get it.
