ORIENT CERAL006W Automatic Watch

August 11th, 2009 | 14 Comments

This model is part of Orient’s Water Resistant 100m collection. What makes this watch great is that it’s a mechanical self-winding watch. What that means is that when you wear the watch during your daily wear, the energy of the movement from your arm is used to wind a spring inside your watch. That spring, with the use of micro mechanics, stores that energy and utilizes it for time keeping.

This entire mechanism is called a mechanical movement. That means no batteries or electronic components. What makes Orient a great choice is that they use their own in-house movement. Orient designed and manufactures their own movement, which in uncommon throughout in the industry.

The dial is white with red accents used for the second hand as well as the markings for the minute/second hands within the hour indexes. The 12, 3 & 6 hour indexes use a modern font that sets the tone of the watch. The indexes are luminescent so that it is appropriate to wear during the evening. The shape of the case and the use of a modern dial allow the wearer to use this in a professional as well as a casual setting.

This 100m case uses rigid lines on the case to make the watch stand out. The crystal uses a magnified lens for the date so that it is easier to read. Notice how the lines of the crystal extend to the case.

The crown is located on the 3 position and has shoulders on the top and bottom to protect the crown.

.The crown is screwed down by design to protect the case from water damage,
and its function allows the user to adjust time as well as the date wheel.

    Nice design. I’m still partial to round dials though.

    I really like the style and color scheme. I am a sucker for the different date complications that orient is so fond of, so this watch really appeals to me. I like the tank styling. A little too steep at this price unfortunately.

    Another home run by Orient. Keep em coming! I’m looking forward to seeing Orient being sold at more American shops. It’s a great brand with great quality and Americans need more exposure to automatic watches, and affordability helps.

    I love Orient. I hope you guys select my entry for the Name a Watch. I would love to be part of Orient’s history.

    Beautiful,elegant watch. Just what to expect from Orient.

    Sorry to sound like a broken record, but this “30% off is the new 50% off” mentality is not cutting the mustard anymore.

    Any watch DOD has to be at least 40% off. The “DOD” prices posted in the last few days are no more than 30% off MSRP. Nothing great to say the least. You can get the same or slightly more from Amazon or Long Island Watch. Could it be that these online ADs have barked off and protested back to Orient Watch USA for the aggressive pricing schemes of the last few months? Whatever the reason, I say to these Orient online ADs… If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen. simple as that!

    Oh and whatever happened to this Orient Watch USA press release from just a few months back?:

    “Each day, a different Orient Watch will be featured at an extreme discount, ranging from 40 – 60 percent off.
    Added: 04.24.2009″

    Read that again: 40% to 60% off!!!

    I don’t understand what is going on behind the scenes since last week.

    I love Orient and truly love the watches. But I am not happy to see DOD prices skyrocket the way they have.

    Rant off.

    Great design.
    I love the red.

    I like the squarish styles; nice white dial. Another classic piece by ORIENT. However, the DOD prices are not what they used to be.

    @Frank – I love the rant. I hadn’t seen that press release about DODs being 40%-60% off. I also love Orient watches. I bought one for my wife, and one for myself.

    Because I don’t have unlimited funds, I’m on a semi-strict regimen of one watch per manufacturer in my collection. The Orient I chose to be that one representative piece was the Blue Mako. It came up on the DOD, and I jumped all over that deal, because it was readily available and at a great price.

    Now that I have my Mako (Orient grail, if you will), it’s going to take something special to get me to pull the trigger quickly on another Orient watch. I can be tempted and swayed by a special watch at a special price. That’s much less likely to happen at 30% off than it is at 50% off.

    With that said, I think this is a great looking watch, with very unique and desirable styling. I’m sure everyone who picks one up will get great enjoyment from this watch.

    Thanks for commenting on the pricing everybody. I was starting to wonder if I was the only one that felt that way. Orient should be using the DOD as a method to flood a new market with their wonderful product and build a name for themselves in this country. To me the DOD was an opportunity to purchase watches I otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford. Nobody really needs more than one watch, let alone four or five or more. A big discount is the only way I or anyone else can feel comfortable justifying the purchase of several watches. Keep the discounts deep guys! If I see something I really like for 60% off or more I’m buying it, bills be damned!
    P.S. For every person who speaks up there are fifty more that feel the same way!

    Red makes it pop, the black ring sets it off…I do like the tank style with the unique date magnifier too. Price is just a bit too steep yet. I’d like to see markers instead of numerals on “dressier” watches.

  13. By Nick on Aug 12, 2009

    PRICING: I agree with the previous posters! Just when I’d found this site, and was looking forward to great DOD’s, the big discounts stop. That’s not fun. A 30% discount on DOD is nothing, and won’t get my money. I was able to get only one DOD before the major discounts ceased. :-(

    On another note, the photography of the watches at the main Orient site is really poor. The DOD area has much better photos with good contrast and better color, and really show off the amazing detail and design that Orient offers.
    And why is Orient’s site the only watch site I’ve ever seen which does NOT have zoom-able photos??
    I really like my two Orient watches and I look forward to getting more when the good discounts return — AND when I can really see what the watches look like.

    Glad to see a respected manufacturer doing something like this! I only stumbled across here while researching Orient upon recommendation from a friend.

  15. By Lansing on Aug 16, 2009

    I’d like to see lower prices too but they have to make money as well. Buy the same exact Orient watch with a different brand logo on it, and watch the price double if not more.
