Orient Watches – Japanese Craftsmanship and Superb Quality


Orient is one of the well-known Japanese watch making companies that create good quality and reliable timepieces. Its beginnings were in 1950 when it started off as an independent company and created its first wrist watch; the Orient Star in that same year.

Although it started off independently, Orient is currently owned by Seiko Epson which is the world’s biggest manufacturer of computer printers and imaging equipment and again, it is a well-respected brand by itself. Orient manufactures its watch movements in-house, keeping up with their mission to offer high-quality and affordable timepieces.

Japanese products are well known for their excellent craftsmanship, precision engineering, superb quality and durability. The Orient brand conforms to the strictest Japanese standards which are also quite stringent just like the COSC standards for Swiss watches. Orient watches are built in-house, right from the movements to the designing.

As is expected, Orient has built up a good reputation for itself over the decades as a watch manufacturer that focuses on quality and craftsmanship of its timepieces. I think this is one very good reason to have an Orient automatic or mechanical watch in your collection.  Built to last, you can expect your Orient to provide you with years of impeccable service.

Orient watches are notoriously economical. In fact, you might be surprised to know that you could get at least a couple of Orient mechanical wristwatches for the price of one Swiss-made mechanical piece. Likewise, you can easily afford an Orient automatic watch due to its reasonable price tag and yet be assured of its reliability and quality.

In my opinion one of the best things about the Orient brand is its ability to provide several features and functions at the reasonable price range. A good example would be the Orient’s Sun and Moon Open Heart Automatic which is selling just under $400 at Downunderwatches.com (https://www.downunderwatches.com)

One of the striking features of an Orient wristwatch is the neat and clean dial. Most of the Orient watches, especially the models from the Bambino Collection, have an amazingly uncluttered dial giving them a vintage, old-world charm.

Orient’s timeless designs and clean aesthetics of the Classic collection make for amazing timepieces and are a must-have in your wardrobe. The Orient Bambino line is again a series of simple but elegant dress watches.

The Orient Sports Collection is distinguished by the thick hour indices and hands along with rugged looks. A good example is the Orient Mako which is one of the most popular dive watches in the series.

Whether it is a dive watch you are looking for or one to match your casual outfit or an everyday watch to wear to work, choose from Orient’s huge array of timepieces that are exquisite, affordable and durable at Downunderwatches.com.
