February 7th, 2011 | 1 Comment

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, which means that men everywhere will be in search of that elusive perfect gift, something romantic, unique, and thoughtful.

Luckily, the Orient CDB01004W is all of those things.



You already know that a dress watch like the Orient CEV0E001B makes a great gift for men, but what you may not know is that a classic watch is also a great gift option for women.

Here are the top 10 reasons why we think the Orient CDB01004W should be your go-to gift for your loved ones this Valentine’s Day:

1. It’s romantic. This beautiful model has a unique heart-shaped semi-skeleton feature on the face and the caseback, making it a thoughtful choice for the romantic holiday. There are also subtle heart details on the face and engraved on the back of the watch.

2. It’s functional. Unlike a bouquet of flowers, a watch is a gift she can actually get some use out of.

3. It’s affordable, but she won’t know it. With an MSRP of $250, the Orient CDB01004W won’t break the bank, but with an in-house movement and superior craftsmanship, it can hold its own against any high-end model.

4. It’s fashionable. She’ll be impressed by your ability to pick a classic looking yet trendy model. She might even start asking you for fashion advice.

5. It can be personalized. Engraving is easy to do with stainless steel, so you can take this model to a jeweler and have her name, a quote, or a special date engraved. She’ll appreciate the thoughtfulness behind the gesture.

6. It’s comfortable. Any woman will tell you that some trends can be pretty painful (think stilettos and skinny jeans), but a wristwatch isn’t one of them. The genuine leather band and case diameter of 13 mm give this watch a comfortable, lightweight feel, perfect for a wrist of any size.

7. It has longevity. An Orient automatic watch will last a lot longer than a box of chocolates will, and requires very little maintenance to keep it running. A mineral crystal and water resistance of 50 m add durability, ensuring that this is a gift she’ll love for years.

8. It’s versatile. A simple color scheme makes this watch a perfect accessory for any occasion. No matter her personal style, the CDB01004W has a widespread appeal because of its minimalistic elegance. However, if her style is bolder, the Orient CDB01002H offers the same features with an eye-catching red dial.

9. It can turn into a hobby. Once she falls in love with the CDB01004W, you can introduce her to other models with different styles and features. Building a watch collection can be a new hobby that the 2 of you can do together.

10. It’s an Orient. Respected for their quality and affordability, Orient automatic watches make thoughtful gifts for any occasion, especially Valentine’s Day.
