ORIENT 2ER00001B Automatic Watch

October 25th, 2009 Posted in Previous DOD's | 18 Comments

Todays Deal is the 2ER00001B

The 2ER00001B is a professional diver’s watch from an intriguing collection of automatic timepieces, which also includes the 2ER00003B with a silver and gold two-toned band. The most interesting feature of this watch is the use of 21 jewels in the most sensitive areas of the watch’s mechanics. This reduces friction in the movement of the watch, which allows for a more accurate time. Since this watch is mechanical, it is powered through the spring of the watch. As the watch is being worn, it will power itself. However, the watch will use its power once it remains still.

The dial (face of the watch) has many stand-out features that you will enjoy.
You will notice that the bezel (outer ring of the watch) has a coined edge for
added texture and style. The bezel is 60 clicks and uni-directional, which means that it rotates in one direction. The rotating bezel allows the owner to view how much
time has passed by adjusting the indicator to the minute hand.

At the 3 o’clock position, you will see that there is a magnifying glass that overlooks the date indicator. To adjust the date, you must rotate the crown (time-setting piece). The crown has 2 different levels to it that adjusts the date and the time. The first level will correspond to the date, while the second level will adjust the time. Another interesting feature of this watch is its luminescent hands. This allows you to view your watch during the evening and underwater.

The crown for this watch comes with shoulders for added protection from
physical damage. When you are swimming or going scuba-diving, water will not
enter the case for up to 10 bars, which is equivalent to 100 meters.

The links for this band comes in a 3-piece combination. You will notice that
the links are unfinished metal. The band is a solid stainless steel piece. The
clasp for this series is a fold-over-clasp-with-safety. This specific clasp
prevents the watch from coming off of your wrist unintentionally.

    Hi, the movement is Japanese, but where is the watch made/assembled?

    Also what are those little words on the bottom of the dial near the 6 o’clock position?

    Water Resistant -10bar

    It means that is is water resistant to 100 meters or 330 feet. Also there is no such thing as a waterproof watch only water resistant. and hello this is a Mako!!

    This one is a must have for all. Mine has been around many years now and it is always one of my favorites. A watch for every day wear, you could not do better, and the price ,, it’s a steal.

    Hello, this watch is not the slightly pricier 200m diver known as the Mako. The Mako has a separate screwdown date pusher, does not have a cyclops over the date window (Plus the Mako has a day/date complication in both English and Spanish). The Mako is slightly larger too.

    wow, I was never a big fan of the 2er until I saw it on pigskin …

    I’d keep it on a bracelet, not a fan of leather on divers…salt water + leather = new band shopping :)

    It’s probably nicer than my knock off Submariner. What the heck, it was a gift.

    Nice, classic submariner homage watch…note the decent magnifier over the date, many homages fall short there.

    Love that bezel. And the dot on the second hand!

    Hi, Just saw the comments re the Orient 100M divers and could not resist my own story. About 3 years ago I found a WW2 Omega military watch I had been hunting for a while and did a deal with the guy which included the Orient. I was so impressed, I wear it almost every day fitted with a black military style strap which looks really cool. Most people think it’s a Rolex Sub. I like it so much I also bought a blue face from Island Watch for under AUS$200. These watches must represent some of the best value I have ever seen. How do they do it for the price? Cheers, Tony.

    At Christmas I received an Orient 2ER00002D 100m Professional Sport Diver Blue dial. It was already running when I opened the mail parcel and after setting the time we were up and away. Since then it has never stopped and is still accurate to within a few seconds without any alteration and the watch is really comfortable to wear. I am amazed that Orient can produce such an excellent product at such a reasonable price. I think Automatic watches are due for a big increase in popularity as people realise how energy efficient they are. My next goal is to get this watch with the black face and bezel.
    Best wishes
