I really like the colors on that.
But I’m not a fan of open hearts, and it’s overall too busy.
It’s like they started with a beautiful watch and screwed it up.

Looks nice but not my style. As far as Orients go, which I'm not a fan of generally, it looks pretty good.

Same. I feel like Orient often overloads their dress watches. It's too bad, they're great bang for the buck watches.

Yeah, not sure about that Orient. It's too busy and i don't like the font on the logo, it doesn't blend with the watch. Sorry.

^ is the bracelet removable? I don't dislike the bracelet but it looks like a hair-puller and the watch would look better on a NATO imo.

Confirmed hair puller. Yes it's removable from the back.



It's a great watch. I really like mine.
Which color did you get? Was waffling forever between this, the white face, and the black with green.

Got my watch. I like all the design elements but...I think it is too many design elements.

If there were no faux rivets on the case I think that would be enough. The alarm....eh, I actually don't think it does anything. The band is much more solid and less fuzzy look than what the photos on Drop made them out to be. The hands are blue but not really noticeably blue except in certain angles.

However, it is still a really pretty watch but I don't know that I won't be trying to offload it soon.

Did you order/get the Green one you were thinking about?
