ORIENT CET05001W Automatic Watch

November 2nd, 2009 | 94 Comments

In my opinion, this collection is one of the most stunning classic watches that
Orient has to offer. The CET05001W watch has a very clean and simple design but looks sophisticated. What I love most about this watch is the 3-tone design on the
surface of the dial (face). The textures of the inner dial, as well as the outer
dial, complement well with the texture of the sub-dials.

The dial on the CET05001W has many attributes that make this watch into a successful timepiece. Features such as the date indicator (located at the 6 o’clock
position,) the day sub-dial (located near the 2 o’clock position,) and the
24-hour sub-dial makes you value such a work of art.

If you want to adjust the date, you must first loosen the crown
(time-setting knob) located at the 4 o’clock position. You will notice that
there are 2 levels to the crown. The first level adjusts the date indicator,
while the second level adjusts the time and the date of week. The hour and
minute hands are both luminescent so you may view the time in the dark. When
adjusting the time, you will see that the 24-hour sub-dial corresponds with the
movement of the hour hand.


The crown comes with the engraved Orient logo and shoulders for protection.
This automatic watch runs on the power stored within the spring of the watch. As
the owner wears the watch, the spring naturally stores power. This watch is also
water-resistant for up to 50 meters.

Bands and clasps are important aspects to a watch as they can provide a nice
feel and should compliment the rest of the watch’s vibrant design. For this
watch, the band is engineered to focus on comfort.

The metal band comes with both matte and finished links. This provides a
two-toned shine to the rest of the watch. Next to the dial, you will see that the first two links are tapered followed
by untapered links. The deployment clasp for this collection adds security so that the
watch does not come off unintentionally.
The case also has the official Orient logo engraved and is made of stainless

    I owned the black one, the dial of the watch has amazing details. Size is right for a dress watch. The blue hands on the white dial look very attractive. Very elegant dressy watch, it will look great on leather strap also.

  3. By Douglas on Jul 6, 2009

    Less is more. I like it.

  4. By JAE on Jul 6, 2009

    I really like the blue hands.

  5. By Steven on Jul 6, 2009

    I love the watch, but I wish the watch had solid blue hands.

  6. By Todd on Jul 6, 2009

    It’s like deja vu all over again from yesterday. My favorite touch is the subtle texture on the sub dial. This seems like a more casual watch than the darker version; I like the versatility.

  7. By Frank In Miami on Jul 6, 2009

    The Blue Hands and exquisite dial work make this watch stand above the rest. Well done orient.

  8. By FJ on Jul 6, 2009

    Beautiful watch! Would love to get one but the orientwatchusa.com seems to be down.

  9. By Mark S on Jul 6, 2009

    Great nice watch with heavy feeling. It made by piece of soild steel. Love it!!

  10. By Guy Incognito on Jul 6, 2009

    The watch looks nice but the website appears to be broken. (About us page gets error, ordering page gets error.)

  11. By OrientWatchUSA.com on Jul 6, 2009

    Our hosting service for checkout is down. We will honor price matches for this watch for 24 hours after this deal of the day ends.

  12. By RobG on Jul 6, 2009

    Definitely a nice watch but it has an identity crisis…dress or sports watch? Leather band would easily push it towards dress watch territory (white face, nicely done blue hands and subs).
    OTOH – The numerals on the face give it a sporty feel and the solid bracelet reinforces it.
    I like it…but would prefer a brown alligator band around it.

  13. By Christian B on Jul 6, 2009

    Imagine my dissapointment as I clicked Checkout and received an error message to the effect that the page cannot be displayed! I so wanted the deal of the day!

  14. By FJ on Jul 6, 2009

    I agree RobG. It would be great to get a brown band on this watch and dress it up. Hey Orient, what’s the lug width on this baby? I’ll buy the strap now and hope it comes around the same time as the watch.

  15. By IanM on Jul 6, 2009

    Nice one Orient! The combo of dial texture and blued hands sets the watch off nicely. The 5-link bracelet is a nice touch – very stylish!

  16. By Greg on Jul 6, 2009

    The first time I saw this watch I fell in love with it. The texture on the dial looks outstanding and the blue hands subtly change colors from black to blue depending on the angle. Looks sporty yet dressy and all class. The pictures don’t do it justice, it is truly a beautiful watch!

  17. By Guy Incognito on Jul 7, 2009

    Still won’t let me buy the watch. Hmm. Too bad; this price was better than Amazon’s. On the other hand, I trust Amazon, and have never bought from here before… and these technical problems don’t inspire confidence.

  18. By OrientWatchUSA.com on Jul 7, 2009

  19. By Guy Incognito on Jul 7, 2009

    OK thanks for the reply. I had no concerns about the brand itself, but was unclear on whether this website had any official affiliation with Orient.

  20. By Brad Smith on Jul 14, 2009

    The blue hands look very nice.

  21. By CB McDonald on Sep 14, 2009

  24. By sam Wang on Sep 14, 2009

  35. By Kerry Noto on Sep 14, 2009

    I love this watch it is great the the band fits better than any other watch I ever owned and I enjoy showing it off. I wish that I could afford to buy three. It is very comfortable and easy to put on. Also very colorful.

  36. By Melissa Hernandez on Sep 14, 2009

    I like these watches. I buy my hubby watches all the time, he’s a watch lover. This would make an excellent addition to his collection! Very nice!

  37. By Deb Farrell on Sep 14, 2009

    What a beautiful classically designed watch.

  38. By Todd on Sep 14, 2009

    I bought this watch (from Orient, might I add to calm the doubts of the above poster)and I couldn’t be happier.
    Today is my first day of work with a new job, which watch am I relying on for first impressions? Yep, this baby.
    The face is amazing because it manages to pack in a ton of detail design work as well as two sub dials and a date complication, and yet, due to the contrast from the beautiful blue hands, it is as easy to read as a watch without complications.
    The little touches really make this watch standout, like the 4 o’clock crown, the intricate scallop work to give the dial texture, and the silver ring around the date window so it doesn’t look like a jagged hole cut in as an after-thought like happens with most.
    If you are at all unsure, don’t be, this watch is beautiful, and owing to the silver rather than white face, goes well with any band and any outfit (except I suppose a gold suit, but well, you have bigger problems to worry about then…)

  40. By Sue P on Sep 14, 2009

    I’m considering purchasing for my son, wondering if he wears it daily if he will scratch it?

  41. By anthony t. brown on Sep 14, 2009

    there is nothing about this watch that i don’t like. it’s sharp without being loud. i love it! who says you have to spend outrageous amounts to look great?

  42. By Roy North Carolina on Sep 14, 2009

    These look like they are good quality. Could be competition for Sector.

  43. By liz lyons on Sep 14, 2009

    They look fabulous! I would love to get one for my man.

  44. By Hobert Travis on Sep 14, 2009

    The watches looks Great. But I don’t have the money to buy one.

  45. By Dave on Sep 14, 2009

    The face looks very busy, but the blue hands really stand out nicely against the background.

  46. By Karen on Sep 14, 2009

    I have read the comments and am convinced that your company makes a beautiful, versatile product. My husband would be delighted to see a watch in his stocking this Christmas.

  47. By Jimbo on Sep 14, 2009

    Nice Watches

  48. By William Tucker on Sep 14, 2009

    The design of this watch is striking. It can compliment any outfit you are wearing casual or business.

  49. By Kevin on Sep 14, 2009

    This watch has been thought thru for every detail! Stainless, 21 Jewels… The clasp will work very well not to catch on a sleeve or something not on your person. the only thing is how they work when you wear them, how they wind if you don’t happen to move a lot, like if you’re a driver. And how will the crystal stand up to abuse.
    Thank you,

  50. By Chris on Sep 14, 2009

    Very stylish. I love the look of the face, the placement of the “day” dial and the blue hands really makes it stand out.

  51. By Jim Abbott on Sep 14, 2009

    Very nice looking watch appears to focus on more function than pretense. It looks like something to put on my christmas wish list.

    My collection of Orients includes three Makos, two semi-skeletons, and two dress watches. I also own several Eco-Drives, a couple of Seikos, and an Omega Seamaster (gift).

    Out of all of them, this is my favorite.

    You will not find a better value in a dress watch.
