I think the design is probably more suited to the not so young wearer. :)
:think: Really - do you think so...

:-d I think it's a very juvenile watch...

@Ecotrin:

If you like it and if you feel young at heart go for this Orient Star. It's a nice dress watch really.
Be prepared: it has a classic look.

Here's it's blue faced brother:



I think Orient's handwindable and hacking movements are as good as Seiko's 6R15 mvts.
Having said that, they feel different while winding (a bit rough, not as smooth as the aforementioned Seiko mvts.).
I have four Orient Stars, they all are good regulated between 0 and max. 10 secs. fast.

...Do you think it is too expensive for what is is at $550? I am looking for a dress watch and that is why I kinda like it but it is pricey for an orient.

thank you,
will
$550 is probably Seiya's price. He's a seller with great reputation.
You could try one of the japanese web shops on the rakuten online mall.
Some of them (not all) will send outside Japan.

Rakuten: WZ0011EJ Orient Star Orient A line In Stock Price: Low to High - Shopping Japanese products from Japan

No, $550 (or $477) + taxes is not that much for an Orient Star. Be aware that the Star line is more refined than Orient Three Stars.
There are good ordinary Orients too.

Have a look here: CLASSIC AUTOMATIC | FD0F003W | ORIENT WATCH
