ORIENT CEZAE001S Automatic Watch

August 16th, 2009 | 25 Comments

Orient is a “real” watch manufacturer because they only use their own mechanical movements for their production. Movements are simply the mechanism that allows a mechanical watch to function. The Orient CEZAE001S uses 23 jewels in the movement design: gemstones are used in some of the moving parts of mechanical watches. They are used in sensitive parts of the machinery because they are durable and smooth, enabling for higher accuracy in timing.

The dial for this watch comes with a date indicator located at the 9 o’clock position. It also comes with a 12 hour power reserve indicator located under the 12 o’clock position. Prefer a black dial over the white and black? Try the CEZAE002B instead.

The time hands, as well as the hour indicators, are both luminescent. This allows for the owner to view the time during the evening. This watch is water resistant to 100 meters (330 feet).

This watch has a two-level crown which adjusts both the time and the date. The
1st level corresponds to the time while the 2nd level corresponds to the date.
To adjust either level, you must first loosen the screw-down crown.



 The purpose of a screw-down crown is so that water does not enter the case. The crown has shoulders for added protection

allows you to view the complication that is powering the watch. 

Next to the exhibition window you will notice the Orient Logo stamped into
the case.

    Watches like this one are why I am a fan of orient. This is a great looking watch! Really unique styling, the color scheme is classy yet still pops, and the date complications is a nice change from the window. Overall, a fine specimen of a watch that makes me with I had a bigger budget! Also, glad to see we’re back to automatics

    I’m still waiting for an Orient watch with a minimalistic design similar to the CEX0R001D I got recently. I love that watch but the crystal was scratched too easily within the first week and is also a bit on the heavy side. I’m wishing for an automatic dress watch with a power reserve, sapphire crystal, and a black leather strap. That would be a watch I’d wear everyday.

    This is one of my favorites. Both sporty and elegant, with a case that is large without being gaudy. Very nice!

    Very cool watch. The leather strap with deployment clasp is a really cool touch. Much nicer than a standard buckle. I was VERY tempted to order this watch, but it is a bit to similar to my other Orient – a sports model with the same case shape. I get more comments on that watch than on my Rolex GMT master. If anyone out there is on the fence about ordering this watch, or have never purchased an Orient – Go for it! You won’t be dissapointed. It is an excellent value in an automatic timepiece.

    Nice watch. Why are the hands on the date and seconds reversed in the picture?

    Hi Alan, Great eye! the first picture is a stock picture we received from Japan. It appears to be defective. All the other pictures we took in house in LA. For now, disregard the stock picture until we get a replacement.

    I’ll be honest…The 7 screw fixed caseback on this model is beautiful. This is a nice timepiece. The dial is very unique, but not completely sure about the date subdial.

    I like the watch. It is classy, yet quite contemporary.

    I acquired a Blue Mako recently and am now a fan. For the money, the quality and styling is top notch. Now I run across this beauty which has me enamored with its modern and distinct styling. The skeleton caseback is a beautiful touch. I have spent countless hours checking out watches online and reading the forums, but I have not seen anything this appealing within this price range.

    Cool window in the back, cool crown, cool case design, cool sporty stripe on face…unique all around. Deployment clasp! (woohoooo) Nifty “rocket” day indicator too. I like it as a sporty watch, still a bit too steep for my poor wallet. Size seems just right at ~41 wide too. This puppy is a little bit of everything.

    Gah! Just noticed the dates on these comments…this one appears to have come and gone and come again full circle. :)

  13. By Todd on Aug 16, 2009

    Nothing has changed in my mind since the first round of comments…a watch i would love to have in my collection. The date complication is my favorite part, but the exhibition back and overall style is also attractive

  14. By Frank In Miami on Aug 16, 2009

    I personally would like this watch much better if the seconds hand was part of the main dial. I am not that keen on the seconds hand been relegated to a subdial in a mechanical watch.

    Other than that is a really nice looking piece.

  15. By Gary on Aug 16, 2009

    If only the DOD discount was better.
    This beauty would be added to my Orient collection in a heartbeat.

  16. By go blue on Aug 17, 2009

    That’s a hot watch.

  17. By go blue on Aug 17, 2009

    And by hot I mean beautiful, not stolen! Man I would love to win one.

  18. By Frank In Miami on Aug 17, 2009

    Same watch today, eh?

  19. By Tokei on Aug 17, 2009

    What happened????
    No DOD today? Same date 8/16.

  20. By Frank In Miami on Aug 17, 2009

    Trouble in paradise?

  21. By Vladimir on Aug 17, 2009

    Interesting observation: ORIENT ran out of the DOD offerings? Strange, ORIENT has so many models, still not shown here…

  22. By Frank In Miami on Aug 17, 2009

    I sincerely hope our friends at Orient USA are re-visiting their 30% off only policy for DODs…

  23. By Tokei on Aug 17, 2009

    Hmmmmm….sounds like they are having a “chiefs of staff” meeting.
    Probably evaluating recent developments?

  24. By Frank In Miami on Aug 17, 2009

    I would like to know what caused this sudden change in DOD pricing policy to begin with?

  25. By Nick on Aug 17, 2009

    Yeah, where’s the DOD for August 17th, since it IS August 17??????

  26. By andrian esparza on Dec 12, 2010

    I love them
