Love it! Seiko pulls through with pride. Looks on par with the Zenith, which cost 40x more.

I immediately thought of the Zenith when perusing these shots. Watch out Curious Man! Get someone else to start your car in the morning :)
You're doing great work here, vindicating the choices of many on this sub-forum.
Have you done a Hamilton, Mido or Certina yet?

That was surprisingly good. Punches well above it's weight, as many of us feel Seiko often does.

Another excellent review

thanks! :) I did Hamilton Khaki Navy GMT. Now I'd love to do some good old timey vintage, from 50s or so, Mido, Certina, Longines...

Printing and indices are not the smoothest. But it'd be impossible to expect otherwise at this price point.

Very sound and strong mechanically. No wonder the movement is bullet proof. It'd be interesting to compare with 6R15 and the higher-end models from Seiko.

So both Orient and Seiko impress under the microscope...
