yes please.

Sorry to bring this thread down, but would you consider this a dressy watch?

 

post #28563 of 48312
id say so.

Honestly, I find those part-skeleton dials very tacky and associate them with fashion watches and nasty "hommages".  Nothing against Orient, but I think if you want an economical dress watch, then a cleaner dial is the way to go - and Orient have them too.  

 

Unless there's a tourbillon or something awesome to show off, I think displays of the movement should take place through the rear. :)

 

P.S. Keith: surely Panerai belongs on a Fiorentina shirt? :p

Nice watch.  I respect their heritage and the people who wear them but I get lost in the madness that is the Navitimer.  I'd touch the wrong pusher and initiate the detonation sequence and know I messed up.

 

As for the Orient above, I have never understood the random cutout on the dial.  Like Mimo said, unless it is showing off the grand complication, leave the peeping to the case back.

You mean the countless versions they make switching dials positions every year? If so, I couldn't agree more...

I think the cutout, especially done this way is playful while still staying true to the dressy nature of the watch. I guess it's more youthful.

Points taken though.

I don't consider myself old, though maybe not youthful anymore (early 30's), but it just looks tacky to me. Orient makes some good watches for the money, but this one would never get me to look twice at it for any good reason. If you're set on liking it, that's fine, but I don't consider random cut outs to be dressy or elegant.
