Any wrist shots of this watch or other colors? Would love to see it in red though , tri cut crystal intrigues me
Found it and here are his pics, champagne one I suppose, very sleek and cool looking. I would still like to see a red one. Thanks for the info DJWHi there , i think there is an article further down by "conjurer" called impressions of orient neo-70's . Not sure if theres pic 's as i am at work and not all of them show up . I will have a look when at home. DW.
I case you were still curious, here's mine:
I like it overall. The dial has some nice details and the watch is light and sits comfortably. I find the crystal interesting but a bit distracting at times. I think it would have been better if the dial had been patterned into sections instead of cutting the crystal. I'm not sure, but it looks like that's how they made the 3-hand models in the Neo 70's collection. It would probably have been difficult to do though with a chrono dial.

I like that a lot. But the face is more a a dark maroon then a purple, isn't it?
I think of it as purple with a reddish tone rather than a pure purple. Yeoman has a nice review here: Photo Review: Orient Neo 70′s – UG1U004V | Yeoman's Watch Review
Found it and here are his pics, champagne one I suppose, very sleek and cool looking. I would still like to see a red one. Thanks for the info DJWThey added a couple of colours and called them Neo70 Focus Bright. That's the orange one. I remember seeing these when I was browsing in Yodobashi Camera in Fukuoka in April - it was the cut glass that caught my eye. I think I'm going to order the other "Bright" model in blue.
I don't think you will be disappointed, it really is a nice watch especially considering the price. The only thing I would wish for is a better bracelet (like on the Mako), this one has folded links. On the other hand, it makes the combi quite light in weight. I will put mine on leather for the winter though.Man!
Your photo just took me one step closer to buying one.
This model I only saw online but I am familiar with Orient, their designs and their approach to things so I'm pretty confident I will not be disappointed. The pricetag also allows me to take a "risk" to buy without seeing the actual object.Have you looked at all of them in the flesh?
I saw them only internetically.
I am torn between the Green (yours) and the brownish-grey... and the light blue with gold markers.
If you saw all of them, then clearly you preferred the Green?
