200m water resistance. Terrific feeling, rotating bezel. Japanese quartz movement. Red tipped seconds hand. And the solid feel of the case really is something for the price, although some will find it too big at 44mm in diameter. Lug width is 22mm. Throw a nicer NATO on it (like Crown & Buckle’s supreme NATO) and you have a casual/sporty watch setup that looks and feels much MUCH more expensive than anyone would guess at a glance.
The model that more or less brought Orient’s line of mega-affordable, in-house movement equipped automatic watches to our collective consciousness. Classy. Simple. The kind of watch your Dad or Grandpa (and maybe you) would wear with everything. From a t-shirt and chinos to a suit and tie. In house, automatic movement. Domed crystal. Simple hands and indices. 40.5mm diameter case is the sweet spot for many. More than a couple dial and case colors to choose from.
The one drawback is the odd lug/strap width. It’s 21mm. Not 20mm. Not 22mm. 21mm. So choices for a new strap (if you so desire) are a little limited.
Total Cost: $196.01
*NOTE: Looks like between writing/shooting, and publishing, the price on the Casio
