I like this - decent sword hands but without the big fat gladiator hour hand - plus I am always a sucker for a red seconds hand!  I might do a bit of investigation into Orient watches this weekend - know nothing about them.

Thanks. This is my first Orient and it definitely feels more robust than I expected for the price.

Orient are good watches for the money, one of the best bang for bucks out there.

I am giving this a wear for the evening on the strap formerly hosting my Citizen chrono when it arrived -

No AR and very hard to get a good pic, although it can be done @scottswatches got a good shot of his.

I like the buckle too so I'm saying win win!

If you want to know where I got the hint that the Citizen bullhead might dress  down well onto a leather cuff, worth watching Once Upon A Time In Hollywood!

If only I was allowed to buy another watch.  I feel a shopping accident coming on!

Thanks. Yes, calibre 3313, 28800 per minute.

Apparently the earlier versions of these had some issues (chronograph not resetting properly, although mine was faultless). Nonetheless, when it went to Omega for a service, they upgraded to the later improved version just to be sure.

Off out for a couple before it gets to busy.

For those interested LV, Trim Trabs and matching Adidas Orginals jacket that Big M bought in Germany for me. Despite the main colours it’s reversible and I’ve never seen another one over here.

And yes I know what you’re thinking, probably for a reason

I like it, and the attention to detail - there seems to be a default sometimes on chronographs to split the seconds track into fifths, but of course unless your watch does 36000 bph it is anachronistic (or 18000 in which case it will hit every other mark).  I was about to buy a watch I had been looking at for a long time, when it came down in price in the sale, until I noticed at the last moment the seconds track was divided into fifths and it was only a 4Hz movement!  Never pulled the trigger.

I had this ready to post, looks like I didn't press Submit. :wheelchair:

 different Spiedel bracelet from the one it came on, suits the Shockmaster better than the strap.

A ghost I thought I'd never see . If you ever buy off the CW forum off a certain UncleDicky be prepared to be messed around.

They should never have let him back on the Sales section after he stuffed another member with a laco he still ain't got it 12 months down the line . Another is going through the same BS I've just been through . He's got a great big book of excuses and not afraid to use it .

Yep its a lovely spook is that one, its that white dial. I think its like the tudor 1926 white. A sort of 1926....like a ghostly ball like in the Shinning really. A woman once told me to "always expect the unexpected". Like getting stung by a bee she said. I never expected it to come, you never expected it to be a treasury hunt and some falk should write the script for tales of the unexpected. Im proud of you, you won. Can i have me axe back old boy. :biggrin:
