Excellet and Very Affordable

I don't post much about watches in the $200 price range, largely because I don't buy many of them, so I don't have any basis for having much to say. This holiday season, however, I ordered a few inexpensive watches to give as a Christmas gifts. I will keep one, but I have no idea which one, but I'd like to keep the least expensive one.

I ordered them on the basis of one review I read on the WWW. (http://wornandwound.com/2014/08/13/o...400bwo-review/) I ordered the watches and then I started looking for more reviews and I found them, so I'm referencing them here.
I'm not nuts about every watch that was reviewed, but I know that it's harder to find bad watches than it is to find good ones, so I didn't care. I just needed a general sense of who Orient are.


Here are the ones I ordered. We'll see what happens...I hope I won't have to use the one I'd like to keep as a "just in case" Christmas gift.

(Prices shown are MSRP. If you want an Orient watch Google the model name followed by the word price and in many cases you'll find it for a good deal less. You'll probably come across other dial and metal colors too.)

Orient Anchor - $180
Edit: The Anchor is the watch that appears on here somewhere, probably at the end...for some reason I couldn't get it to paste in as did the other pics. The Anchor's is the one with a white dial.

Orient Surveyer - $285



Orient Symphony - $210





Orient Bambino - $260






Orient Mako - $245




All the best.

Nice.

Speaking of Christmas gifts I picked up one for my dad as a gift. He likes the busy look of like a Tag, but I was like that's gonna be a bit much pop. haha I also wanted to get him something easy to use so I found a Citizen:


Fit's what he wants nice for a better price, and actually when I saw it in person I was really digging it. Powered by light so the easy factor was def all there, and this friggin thing totally set itself as soon as I pulled it out of the box. It flipped right to my time zone, set the time, day of the week, date...everything.

Now I personally got into watches because of the old school mechanics, but I was thoroughly impressed with this.

Nice watch!

Purchased the two tone version of this for my brother when he graduated high school last year.

It has a million features...your father will love it if he likes a busy watch.
