+1notice the revolver is from the orient star range, ie. in a higher category.
so yea, anything from better finishing, better materials, better movement...
regardless, the orient star range is still good value for money.
The web site says it has a mineral crystal just like the ray, seeing that was one of the reasons why I asked.+1
sapphire crystal seems well worth the extra cost, if you've ever scratched your mineral crystal.
I did use the search function and could see it was a beefier piece, but was more interested in the internals.or you can use the search function here and look at pics that ppl have posted of theirs, you'll probably be able to see the differences in construction.
tho i guess the revolver is also a discontinued model as its no longer on orient japan's site.
I stand corrected! I was looking at the M-Force, so take a look at that one too. Similar style to the Revolver. There is also a limited edition of the M-Force on their website.The web site says it has a mineral crystal just like the ray, seeing that was one of the reasons why I asked.
Is the movement better?? Just doesn't seem to be that much difference between them to justify the 500+ msrp more price tag than the ray.
anyone have any more info would be great.
The Air Diver "Revolver" is a class up from the Mako, Mako II, Ray etc. line of Orients. I paid 437.00 back in December 2011 for my Revolver shipped brand new. Here are the main upgrades from the Ray.yes I saw that, but I'm not seeing enough to justify the 3X cost of the revolver over the ray.
What else is there?
