5 Stars: CFT00004B Customer Review

July 4th, 2012 Posted in Orient Watch Reviews | 2 Comments

A true favorite among Orient fans, the CFT00004B Rally, an important piece of Orient’s Racer Collection, received a 5-star customer rating.

So what’s so great about this watch? Here’s one review that tells all.

“This is a solid watch. I’ve had mine for well over a month now and Im very satisfied with my purchase. Everything about it is just about perfect.

“It’s very well constructed and has some weight to it as well, which in my opinion is a testament to the quality of this particular watch. The watch seems to be very accurate for an automatic, gaining or loosing only a few seconds (<5) per day.

“As far as design goes, it looks good and succesfully pulls off a balance between sport and dress. Despite the semi skeleton design, it’s not hard to tell time, and there is just enough of the watch’s guts to keep the face interesting to look at while, at the same time, having just enough covered so that you have a functional face.

“When you flip the watch over, you get treated to an exhibition window, which shows off the nicely finished, signed, and decorated movement. The crowns are screwed-down, very solid, and signed as well. The bracelet is very sturdy and the individual links are a nice touch, which makes this bracelet very comfortable. The clasp is secured by both a friction and button mechanism, and is also signed. In other words, you really have to want to take off this watch in order to do so; there is no danger of it accidentaly opening, and you loosing your nice watch.

“As for the slide rule, I’m still itching for an opportunity to make it useful…

“The guys at ORIENT did an outstanding job with this one. Congrats!”

    I recently acquired a CFT00002M. Exactly the same layout but with a black leather strap and orange face. It has a sporty appearance but as this reviewer mentioned, it also passes as quite a stylish and dressy watch.

    I too look forward to a chance to use the slide rule… not to mention learning how to use the slide rule properly.

    All in all, these watches are very nice pieces of kit.

    I ran into this watch recently and I have to say, I just can’t take my eyes off this! It is absolutely magnificent and worth it.
