No frills, accurate, affordable automatic dive watch,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Orient Men's CEM75001B Stainless Steel Dive Watch (Watch)
Very accurate watch for it's price. I'v a Seiko that loses seconds and a Hamilton Khaki King that gains seconds, this Orient doesn't give me that. So very much in line with the time around me.
And the reserve energy seems long for me. I don't have to always put into the winder. I think I can go one day without the winder.
Seems to have this inherent issue that the front bezel does not totally align with the inner dial. But from what I read, it is a QC issue.
A trip to the service centre ought to do the trick. I read that the bezel needs to be removed and put back into a position that would be aligned with the inner dial.
Another known issue is the lume. Yes it is close to non-existing. In very dark place, you can only see it faintly. But again, it's a known issue.
Looks wise, it definately does not feel cheap. Has a good weight to it. With proper sizing done, it feels snug and doesn't make any watch strap noise.
I bought this together with 16 PCS Watch Tool Kit to size the watch myself.
I'm not a diver, but I would probably be on my G-shock instead if I ever go swimming. I wear this Orient at work.
For a basic, no frills, accurate automatic dive design watch with a good modern case size, I would recommend this watch.
