    Nice tank design, they wear large so the size is fine…second hand makes it pop. The assymetrical shape of the window is a little unusual but I like it (not a bad thing). I’d like to see the numerals disappear (markers instead) on a tank watch and a deployment clasp added.

    Someone added a metal bracelet to one of these and the watch looks fantastic. I am a stainless steel bracelet kind of guy. Nothing against leather bands, but those simply have never lasted me more than 2 years.

    This is a great looking watch, I love how the yellow accent spices up the black and white pattern. Incredible price too. If only I hadn’t bought another orient on Friday…
    I agree with one of the above comments, and it is something that a few people have mentioned on the boards: give us more band choices! At least a place to order replacement orient bands so we can mix and match ourselves.

    I usually look more at round watch style cases but this is a really nice design, I love the Yellow second hand but most of all I like the open windows to the movement and I guess most of all I love the curved styling for wrist contouring. This watch should do well.

    I am amazed by how many watches Orient makes that attract me! I love this design.

    This ORIENT watch has a chance to become an ORIENT all time Classic. Simple yet sophisticated. The leather band just enhances its appearance.

    Very nice distinctive design. This model oddly has a very different design from the rest of the line up.

    Excellent features for the price!

    I want to like this one I really do, its just so hard for me to get into these types of fashion watches. Nevertheless I would not hesitate to purchase this if I were so inclined love Orient and their service.

    A dress watch, but yet sporty with its yellow seconds hand and large numerals. Very unique from the typical square watches

    Nice watch. Needs a metal band. Design is unique, tank watches have their own fashion statement. No battery is a plus. It seems a little big but on the right wrist, it’ll look good.
