The simple white face, adorned with gold hands and a date indicator at the 6 o’clock position, adds a modern twist to the otherwise classic model. If you appreciate simple dials but prefer black, you’ll love the Orient CEV0M001B.

This watch looks great, but it feels great too. With just a 7.25mm case thickness, it’s so lightweight that you’ll barely even feel it on your wrist. Even though it’s lightweight, it still maintains superior durability. It has a sturdy sapphire crystal and is water resistant up to 50 meters.

    I love this in SS, but this is a great deal on a gold version.

    UNFORTUNATELY, the “I Want One!” button just takes me to the main site, where the watch is $200. The checkout cart is now missing the box to type in any special code, too. Darn.

    I like Orient Quartz Vintage very much.

    If only our real politicians were this minimalist. Nicely done.

    Nice looking watch. I will have to add the Minimalist to my want list! There are so many nice watches on this site, it’s hard to decide!

    I like the simple yet versatile appearance. It could be worn in a casual or a more classy way and I like that. The price is certainly a bargain on such good merchandise as offered. The lightweight feature is great cuz there’s nothing worse than having a heavy watch on your wrist only to clunk into everything and bog your wrist,arm and hand coordination down. Simplicity with style about sums it up.

    Simplicity with style. Classy yet versatile. A watch made for all occasions or everyday wearability. Easy to read time piece and well made at a reasonable price.

    A very elegant and simple design. I like the size and easy to read face.

    I like how this watch is clean, simple and classy. The thin gold bezel dresses the Politician without so much that it gets showy. I also like how the clean dial has some interest with the step between the ring and the center, in spite of the low profile. Great design, and on my short list of Orient watches along with the blue Mako and the blue Retro Future Car. Yeah, my tastes are all over the map, but that’s one of the things I love about the Orient watch line!

    Very beautifully done. Simple but elegant. Well done you should be proud of your timeless time peices.

    What a stylish mature look. It is almost as if the watches are saying “yes, take a second look- very successful, important, things to do and what good taste. Want one?”

  14. By Maurice N on May 8, 2011

    What’s up with the DOD site? It hasn’t been updated in a while. Is all okay with the site owners, and Orient Watch?

  19. By Tony on May 25, 2011

    Is this ever going to change to a different watch??

  20. By Robin on May 25, 2011

    A very nice, classy looking watch.

  21. By Beth S on May 25, 2011

    Very elegant. Debating between this and the Black Worldview as a graduation gift for my son.

  22. By Shannon B on May 25, 2011

    This is the second message i am sending requiring the tracking number for my order. There is no place on the website to track the order. I only received an email stating my order was place and that’s it. All the website I ordered from before provide me with a purchase email and shipping email to track my package . How come you guys don’t offer this or a number to call and find out.
    I only have an invoice number :100000586
    please advice!
    Thank you !
