Nice watch for not a lot of $$$. I do agree that the dial lume spots are too small. Best described as "Flieger Style"
Thanks bro, i'll be interested to see that, im with you, more yellow or orange divers from orient, they have traditionally done them really well and picked nice matte shades.Cobia,
It appears that Orient has 're-released' the Ray II in orange (limited #s). I too would love to see an orange or yellow colorway Kamasu or the new AC0K (Baby Neptune).
Hi. The movement does look like a legit cal. 46E day-date. The caseback too looks okay. The dial is a bit odd though - most if not all proven-authentic Orients of this type I saw had the Orient logo on. Of course, there were times when Orient released many models without the logo, so that's not a strict rule. The Orient day-date just had so many iterations over the years it's hard to be certain of anything... The case too, seems to have lost so much of its original shape, it's hard to verify for certain.Hi Eran! Tell me, what do you think of this watch? Is this a real ORIENT? On the case number EA 46E704-90 CS (but this is not accurate). I have not found any information on the internet. Sorry, but I don't have a better photo.
Thanks Eran, just read that, it looks like the Royal runs on a more finely finished version of the movement in the 60th AnniversaryThanks again for everyone's feedback. I have posted a new article today. It's about Royal Orient, discussing the possible reasoning behind its termination by Orient. I hope you find it interesting, and of course - looking forward to your opinions on the topic!
Royal Orient, Rest In Peace
These movements are indeed closely related, all cal. 48x40 variants. The Royal though differs in more than just decoration, as it's got longer power reserve. And better regulated.Thanks Eran, just read that, it looks like the Royal runs on a more finely finished version of the movement in the 60th Anniversary
