A couple of years ago, Orient Watch Company celebrated 60 years in the watch making business. Started in 1950, Orient has always been known as a maker of good quality manual wind and automatic watches, with all movements made in-house. Seiko held a 50-percent share in the company for a number of years and recently, Seiko took over the other 50-percent, so now Orient is a fully Seiko-owned company.
Pros: classy, dressy, expensive look, quality throughout, in-house manual wind movement with over-wind protection, power reserve indicator, nice presentation
Cons: lack of lume could bother some, could be a bit dainty for those used to massive tool watches, snap-on case back a pain at service time
Verdict: a beautiful mechanical watch from a long-standing Japanese watch company that celebrates their heritage and will bring joy to everyone that owns one, the Orient 60th Anniversary watch is a real gem
