With its roots dating back to 1901, Orient Watch has specialized in the manufacture and growth of mechanical timepieces. Since 1950, Orient has been at the forefront of the production of mechanical watches in Japan. When it comes to watchmaking, Orient does not have an obscure history: Orient has been producing mechanical watches for more than 60 years. It is one of the top three watch manufacturers from Japan and produces 2 million watches per year. Frankly, it may be the biggest watch brand you’ve never heard of. All of Orient’s movements are exclusively made in Japan and no iteration in manufacturing is outsourced. The implicit value of possessing an Orient watch is that the only way to enjoy its tremendous quality is through ownership.
Orient prides itself on the premise that its timepieces are a “watchmaker’s watch”-- a no frills mechanical watch that is robust and trustworthy.
- Our online reputation suggests that an Orient watch is reliable out of the box. This can be attributed to Orient’s undying dedication to mechanical watches.
- In the eye of the Quartz Revolution in the 1970s, the other top Japanese brands went on to predominantly manufacture quartz, while Orient remained focused on its mechanical movements. And while Orient does produce quartz watches, all movements are supplied by its parent company.
- So what’s the difference between quartz and mechanical? Despite the obvious difference in moving parts, the short answer is seen in the smooth sweeping second hand of a mechanical watch versus the choppy tick of a quartz movement.
As an in-house movement producer, Orient joins a short list of watch companies that actually manufacture their movements in-house and exclusively for their own use. In the industry, it is highly uncommon that a company produces their own movements in-house, and by doing so Orient Watch can ensure that the quality of their wristwatches are held to the highest standards— Orient’s watches have often been lauded for their rich styling, dependability, and tremendous value.See all Product Description

Fast-forward to this Oreint Ray. The style these days is either "big" watches or smartwatches. This doesn't fall into either of those fashion trends as it is moderately sized and not "smart" beyond time, date. Truth be told, I dislike having to yank a cell phone out of my pocket to see what time it is and during the business day I need to use my time wisely. I also try very hard to avoid pretense so the modest size and obviously unknown brand helps. I threw out the rubber band and replaced it with a black leather band.
I am not OCD about accuracy. As long as it doesn't lose or gain 3-5mins a day, I don't care. I can tell you that I don't adjust it often enough for it to be an issue. All I want is time, week day and date... this watch gets it done. In my mind, it is as accurate as any other watch I have owned. The style of the watch is what it is... another "Diver-ish" Rolex-ish, Omega-ish style watch. Not unique at all, but it's $100 so what do you expect? The lume on the face seems very good. Seems well made.
If the diver-ish style is what you want, and you really want to try a mechanical automatic, this is a no brainer adult watch.
My requirements were that it had to be waterproof, not just splash proof.
Decent look that went well with business casual as well as with shorts and a t-shirt
Needs a way of some simple timing.
Finally, it needed to be less that $150 or so.
The Ray fit all of these requirements.
I don't dive, but I do a lot of camping and canoeing. This means that I can end up in the rain or in the river at any time. Since it is waterproof to 200m, this works great for me.
The auto winding does away with the batteries. No need to figure out how to get the back off to replace the batteries. As long as I wear it daily, I don't have to worry about it.
It looks good in whatever I wear. I guess it wouldn't really go with a tux, but I think I've worn a tux 2 times in my life. And I guess I could buy the stainless bracelet and it would look fine in the tux.
When I camp, I cook in a Dutch oven. The rotating bezel to time how long the food has been cooking. Or how long the kids have been away from the campsite. Or whatever.
And the price is awesome.
