Mark Kim

We only know a little about Mark Kim, owner operator of orientwatchusa.com. So we’re setting up an interview with him to give you some in depth details about Orient, life in the watch business, and what makes him tick! Let us know if you have anything you’re dying to know about Mark.  Maybe it will make it into our interview.

Can’t get enough of Mark and Orient?  Then take a look at his awesomely helpful videos highlighting the specs of different Orient watches on youtube.

And don’t forget to check out Mark’s Twitter for updates on all things Orient.  Stay tuned with us over the next few weeks for the up close and personal interviews with the man himself! We’re excited, are you? Let us know with a comment or two.

    Hm…don’t know much about this, but it looks like something interesting to get into. :)

    How did you get involved in horology without any formal qualifications and what would be your advice to someone looking to learn about automatic movements without taking their precious orient apart?

    I have only one Orient watch, the CEZAE001S (Commander)but I watch the sales every day for the next one to catch my eye at the right price level. I don’t have a lot of money to spend; however, I love the Orient line and I know my next one will be well worth the wait and the investment. My question for Mr Kim is: What was the first watch he owned and how much did he pay for it?
