Finally got my hands on my Orient Ray 2 for my birthday and it has been on my wrist every day since.

The blue dial is mesmerising and it feels solidly built. It is keeping excellent time at the moment.

Overall I am very impressed. here are some pics:

Put mine on again for a comparison, yours has longer (better looking) hands.

My Ray Raven II. Awesome build quality for the price. The value for money is just off the scale. I'm looking to get a blue Mako II and an Orient Star next.

A very nice pair of watches,like the textured/carbon effect on the dial

Thanks Pete. :thumbsup:

Apart from being on the lookout for an all black watch, I was initially drawn to the leather strap being shaped to the case. Not until I saw a few YouTube videos that I noticed the carbon weave on the dial, nice touch. It's very comfy on the wrist too.

Orient Mako II blue on Ray II bracelet. I like the dial of the Mako but I prefer the bracelet that comes with the Ray - yes it's a little bit blingy but I think it better suits what I regard as a dress diver. There's a dealer in Germany that supplies the bracelet separately.

My first - a bargain purchase from ebay with a view to 'fixing up'.

Currently stumped on why the day (9 o'clock) won't change (date does, using the push button).

Usually the pushbutton changed the day and the date is changed by the crown, perhaps yours is the opposite way around.  Does the crown have 2 positions?  If so one will be for day and one will be for time.

It appears to, but the day still stays the same. That said, even now when I pull the crown right out to adjust tye hands, the second hand keeps moving, so I think I’ve made it worse...

No, it's a non-hacking movement, some are some aren't it is not an issue.

Hacking = the seconds hand stops when the crown is pulled out.

Non-hacking = the seconds hand keeps going.  Also when you apply a little reverse pressure the seconds hand goes in reverse, wouldn't recommend doing this for long though..

I think everyone must have seen my Orient now but just discovered these members threads:

Orient Sea King. Not sure whether 70's or 80's. My second favourite watch.

My first Orient turned up yesterday. Absolutely astonished at how much watch you get for just over £100. I have a feeling this will be the first of many!! :laugh:
