Hi guys

Just got the Orient OS300 2 days ago after pondering over a few other watches like the Prometheus Piranha, Armida A7 and the Helberg CH6 and 8. Finally, chose the OS300 for the white dial, nice bezel/insert, power reserve and most of all, I want round indices.


It is big alright, having said that, I think my 6.5 inch wrist can (barely) carry it quite nicely.

I had the bracelet sized for me and but I didn't feel the tightness until I got home. My wrist had probably shrunk a bit while driving to Big Time (Orient dealer in Singapore) with the air-conditioner blowing my hands?? Now I need to add another link but before I get to it, I pair it with a black leather strap for now.

Here are a few pics to share.







Of course,we need to compare this with MM300

Beautiful watch ...I really like it. Its just a bit big for me ...well over my self imposed limit of 42mm although lately I have been thinking of the BFK which is 44/45mm.

I particularly like the hour markers and the power reserve and the way the 1 and 2 hour markers are ate into to accommodate the power reserve - it looks like a watch with a lot of character.

Nice comparison with the MM300 - thanks for posting - Enjoy !

Congrats, I miss my white OS300, may need to buy another one soon.

I really liked it A LOT better then the MM300 I had at the time, but both are look great.

enjoy them!

BTW, the photos look good, what are you shooting with? (body and glass)

The bracelet has solid, flatten end links. Due to the flat end link design of the lugs, there is very little gap between the case and the strap. It will not have the big gap "problem" associated with watches like the Sumo.

Yup, got it from Big Time (Singapore).

Nice white dial diver.. Are the end links solid or folded? From BT?

Hi

Thanks. I shot the series with the Nikon D700, Tokina 100 macro lens and 2 SB600 speedlightS.

An amazing watch & superb photography.

I much prefer it to the MM.I may have to try one at some point,although it will be in direct competition with another Big Daddy,the A1.

Thanks for sharing a perfect diver.

Thanks guys. The black version is also nice and I believe it to be the best seller of the 3 colours.

I have the black m-force air diver with a similar dial layout... I love how the 1 o'clock marker makes me think of Pac-Man

Wow, VERY nice!! I'm not usually a white face diver fan but that looks great.

Love the power reserve, and looks like a cross between a MM and a skx 007, really nice bezel on it too. How much did it cost if you don't mind me asking?
