If you think the Orient 2ER00002D looks familiar, then you’re right. The watch is modeled after the look of Rolex’s traditional Submariner.
That said, the watches couldn’t be more different. For starters, Orient’s 2ER00002D “Submariner” uses an Orient Japanese Automatic in-house movement, which is much different from Rolex’s movement or outsourced ETA movements.
Read on to find out more about the Orient 2ER00002D.
In addition to an in-house movement, let’s see what other special features the 2ER00002D offers.
40-hour Power Reserve
This is a useful feature found on Orient Automatic Watches that allows a watch to continue running for approximately 40 hours while unworn. As you may know, an automatic watch is wound based on the wearer’s arm and wrist movement. So this feature can be especially nice for watch wearers who don’t wear the same watch every day or who don’t have a watch winder.
100m water resistance
Though this watch is less than ideal for a serious diver, the 2ER00002D can withstand swimming, snorkeling, recreational diving, most water sports and, of course, minor splashes and spills.
Keep in mind, however, that you should never wear a watch in the shower because shampoo and soap can cause corrosion and internal watch damage.
Solid stainless steel case and band
The stainless steel case and band are important features on the Orient 2ER00002D because they keep the watch sturdy, durable and resilient.
Stainless steel is also specifically known for its resistance to corrosive materials.
Other important features on the 2ER00002D include:
The Orient 2ER00002D uses a simple, clean design that remains eye-catching with its bright blue dial.
This watch also uses a fair amount of lume, which is an important feature on any diver watch whether or not you actually dive with it. The hands and hour markers are large, and they make the watch easy to read.
In addition to the hands being large, the hour and seconds hands are “moon” style, which adds a classic touch to the watch face.
Customers have also noted the 2ER00002D’s accuracy for being an inexpensive automatic watch. And speaking of inexpensive automatic watches, the 2ER00002D retails for $180, yet it remains a quality, luxury timepiece.
But don’t take my word for it, read on to learn what some Orient customers had to say about this watch.
Keeps great time- “This is a great-looking well-made watch, and the picture really does not do it justice. So far it’s keeping great time, which can be a problem even with far more expensive self-winding watches.”
Love it- “I’ve had mine for 11 months and love the look, love the weight, love the compliments.”
Beautiful and resilient- “The watch is beautiful, keeps great time, stands up to wear and tear very well.”
