Yeah it's a quartz movement, but at $89 it's pretty damn tempting for the looks alone

I like that they don't have the Orient logo on the dial - that's one of my biggest gripes with Orient. This looks really good!

The Bambino 3 is automatic and very similar in look. The main problem is the Lug width: 21mm instead or either 20/22mm

Bambino 1 is more similar, I think:

It can be had for a similar price, ~$100. I own a Bambino 2 which I got form Massdrop for $90 or $ 100 I think. It's a great watch, just the logo is too distracting imho. The quartz watch redboat posted has a much cleaner dial (even though the only thing "cleaner" is the logo, to me it looks much cleaner and dressier).

On the theme of Orient watches, have narrowed my search for a PMW divers watch down to these 2 - the Mako USA - am leaning towards the blue face...

Just ordered the blue face - can't wait to see it in person.

Picked up this SWI LE from Ebay couple of weeks ago for $400 in mint condition. Excellent build and accuracy (from my research, SWI used Top grade movements and the blue screws on the movement confirm that).

 

The hours markers are actually embossed and not painted (one of my major peeves on dress watches with painted markers). Plus screwed down crown ..I've gone swimming in the pool and no issues.

New arrival.


Need to decide if I like the size or not. Really love the face on it. Might want to try a bracelet on it.

Has anyone here used Chrono24 or their trusted seller checkout? They only accept Wire transfer for payment, which is weird to me. Any thoughts are appreciated..

That's sketchy.  There's no recourse on wire transfers, which is why people like Nigerian scammers tend to use them.  There's also usually a (often hefty) fee from your bank associated with them.

thanks for your input, yes that's my concern.
