Orient Watches: An Advantageous Purchase That Moves Emotions
Sometimes a different perspective really proves beneficial. That just about sums up Orient automatic watches.
Orient provides high-quality products at a price that gets you excited. Bargain watchers know finding the right deal is more than just a low price. A real bargain contains the hidden bonus of some added intrinsic value.
How Many Zeros?
Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes. We all know the feeling–can’t stay still, mind racing everywhere, excessive daydreaming.
That’s the feeling I get when I see a stunning watch. But do others feel that way? Different watches do this for different people.
Recently, I was flipping through the pages of an on-flight magazine when I found an article documenting a popular watchmaker, Richard Mille. Long story short, the prices for his watches trend into the thousands of dollars.
I couldn’t wrap my mind around this.
I had already been pondering over the fact that the popular Bell and Ross brand watches carry a hefty price tag of around $2,000 – $5,000. They do have a simplistic appeal but does it constitute the cost?
A Strong Foundation
Ingrained into Orient’s history is the effort to remain true to their customers. This is number one priority.
Orient CEO, Jun Wantanabe, explains: “From the executives to the front-line employees, as long as we approach our work with a focus on customers, we will always make the right judgment.”
It is as simple as its brand logo:
- On the left, the one lion represents the company.
- On the right, the other lion represents the dealers and partners.
- he center crown represents the customers.
Orient continues to focus on their niche regardless of what other watch companies are doing. Mechanical watches are their forte, not to mention the in-house Japanese movements’ strong presence in the international marketplace.
The School of Horology talked about the superiority of the Orient in-house movement over the popular ETA movement found in a lot of Swiss watches in a video. Watch it below:
What’s In It For You?
Purchasing a watch is similar to buying any other commodity. It’s a classic example of cost-benefit analysis, and a tribute to the fact that everyone has different tastes. It all boils down to whether or not you will gain some sort of additional value.
Everyone is looking for something different in a watch. People want to be inspired when they look down at their wrist. A good watch will permeate your lifestyle and become an extension of your character.
Orient produces high-end pieces comparable to any other mechanical watch manufacture at sometimes 1/3 the price. Now that’s some bargain inspiration.
Note: When purchasing any type of watch, make sure the retailer is an authorized dealer.
