I was wearing my Late 70's Orient SK diver for the last week and it's been a blast. This was a Japanese domestic issue model, so few made their way to the States, Keeps time beautifully, and is built like a bank vault. I do love Orient watches...

My first quality watch was an Omega that my dad gave me for a birthday present. It belonged to him, and I was over the moon to receive such a gift. Still have it today and it runs beautifully. Since then as an adult I have purchased several more with varying types of complications. I love the product, and the new testing furthers watch accuracy and certification and will most likely become the new benchmark of quality and accuracy. WAY TO GO OMEGA !!!  Doesn't surprise me a bit. Many thanks David for an excellent article, well done. Very informative.

Very clean execution, very well done design. Doesn't move me like the TT-1 or the TT-3, but still conveys the Oris Brand nicely. I believe Oris is an overlooked watchmaker in many ways.

For me, it's odd to consider a Piaget for a chronograph. I'll admit it is a work of art, but I would look elsewhere for my super expensive dress  watch with a complication that is featured here.

I’m guessing that – other than dipping in the gene pool of another Japanese mechanical-watch powerhouse Orient – you simply can’t find as good of an automatic watch for the money."


Lifted that right from the above article. Great job Matt. 


My first quality watch was a Seiko Automatic from the mid seventies. Still keeps fine time and has never been apart. 

My Bellmatics, my uber-70's TV watches, Lordmatics, love them all. 

My first quality dive watch was an Orange Monster, and it still gets pressed into service.

If I had to choose two watches for the rest of my life that I could count on every time, the dress watch would be a Seiko, the everyday "beater" would be a Casio Pro-Trek.


Seiko's have been and still are the "greatest bang for your buck" automatic watch out there. And yes, I believe Matt is correct on stating that Seiko was the first watch company to develop an automatic movement for the masses.

Hooray for Mr. Bamford ! Put a little more zippty doo dah in your pomp and circumstance. Rolex should be taking a cue from this, not getting angry.

It does make a BIG difference to me if the Movement and Case are made in the same place as the watch manufacturer's assembly headquarters. Yes, there is always fine manufacturers like ETA that have been supplying the watch industry for years, but there is something "special" about having your watch product come from one place, and it shows the watchmaker is willing to "hang their's out with the best of them", and risk the Coke- Pepsi challenge if you will. ALL the marbles are on the table. If nothing else, quality control has got to be tighter, because you are now in the arena with the "BIGS". Talk about being under a microscope and having some sleepless nights. You would normally pay a considerable amount of money more for this pleasure of ownership, that price issue isn't present here. Clearly a company worth considering if you want some bragging rights, and a very interesting story to tell !

Casio has it all together in one sock !!! The price is a bit of an ouch, but the presentation is beautiful and it really has everything a watch wearer would need. It certainly would be the most expensive Casio I own, it used to be the Pro-Trek line that you could purchase somewhere in the $200.00 range. Gotta get used to that big asking price. I want to do some research on the Seiko Astron line, and see where the differences become apparent. Good article and photos DB.
