So I started to list the watches I've had over the years...

1991

Sector-AVD3500-Orange.jpg

2002

Citicen_JP1010_Orange-2.jpg

2009

Seiko-Divers-200m-Orange.jpg

...and a couple of days ago I ordered this...

Ray_mockup.jpg

Maybe I'm seeing patterns where there are none, but I think I'm
sensing somewhat of a trend here... :D

(Note that all these images are composites, manually recolored
a.s.o, so if any details are wrong, that is why. And as I couldn't
find good images for any of them with drange dials so this was
the only way for me to recreate them.)

Nice.

Don't always see a nice, multiple collection of orange dials.

Well, at least kind of a virtual collection... ;)

Sadly, none of these are alive today. The Sector died of heatstroke
in the mid 1990's after I lived down in Egypt and Israel, it ran some
crap Studs quartz movement that couldn't handle the heat, it was
pretty much melted, according to the watchmaker I bought it from.

The orange JP1010 ProMaster died from being bashed in a tree while
mountain biking in the late 2000's and was quickly replaced with the
orange Seiko.

...which in turn was lost in the ocean a year or two later. Though I
have hope for it being found by archeologists in the future - well, if
that's something humanity will have, hehe...

But I am really looking forward to the Orient Ray, it looks like a pretty
nice piece of machinery - and it's orange, so that's a good start... :D

I like the collection and the theme. Just ordered my first orange watch last week. Should be getting it this Wednesday.

@NJC

What watch & did you get it?


I'm getting my Ray tomorrow - 5 day delivery from California to Sweden with FedEx economy, that's frigging insane. The world has become so small...

You definitely like orange dial watches. They all look great including your new in coming. I always orange dials and just recently picked up my first.

I was actually given the Sector by my (then-) boss back in 1990-91, so
this wasn't by choice - but it did stick, I'd agree with that.

Sadly I haven't found a fitting Vostok with orange dial so far, the Vostok
orange dials are just too "shiny"... Maybe I'll figure out a way to create a
custom dial to fit the mov't so I can make myself an orange Amphibia too.

And if you ever want to try something else:
OWC Watch Company

No matter what color you choose, the piece will still be ORANGE! :) -:) -:)
I just put a domed crystal on my Ray and I got a Ocean Vintage Military coming from Steinhart any day now, so I think I'll take it easy with the watch expenditure for a while. ;)



Every collection needs at least one.
I got the exact Vostok from The Life Aquatic, so I do have one (and actually a 80's Tonneau too) but no Orange Vostok. But my next Vostok won't be one like that anyways, I promised my 14yo one with a KGB dial. He feels the need to channel Putin, it seems. ;)

Edit: Wow, missed the custom bezel & insert, that's a really nice mod. I'd go for sword hands too - though not sure they are available for the Vostoks... :p
