This review is from: Orient Men's FDB08004B Esteem Open Heart Dial Watch (Watch)
This watch is gorgeous. Love the semi-skeleton design. The face is very classy and conservative, broken up only by the open heart. The fit an finish are superb.
The band is quite stiff. Not sure if this is because it's higher quality leather than I'm used to, but it was tricky for me to get the clasp off the first several wearings. It's breaking in a bit, but still quite stiff.
I haven't tested how long the power lasts, but I don't wear this daily. It powers up as soon as you pick it up though, and doesn't stop throughout the day.
It's not windable and does not have a sapphire crystal, but these probably help keep the price down. It's made in Japan and is of very high quality, both internally and externally.
The automatic winding does make a bit of a whirling sound. It's not overly bothersome though and does give me some indication when manually shaking it to wind it up is actually doing something.
