Orient Watches Available on Amazon

I'm on many watch company email mailing lists.  Much of the incoming mail goes unread but I almost always pause to check out email from one company:  Orient.  This Japanese company has been making high quality timepieces since 1950.  They make their own in-house movements.  From a design perspective, the company  covers a broad spectrum of watch types from conservative dress watches to sport and dive watches.  Orient makes watches worth collecting.

Now, Orient watches are available on Amazon.com.  That's cool.  If you like the convenience of Amazon or if you have a gift certificate or Amazon Prime, it's great to be able to find these watches conveniently.  According to the Orient USA website, there are 6 different categories of Orient watches:  Orient Star, Diver, Sport, Executive, Classic, and Ladies.

Orient Star Watches

The top line watches in the Orient product line up are Orient Star watches.  These watches have fine automatic movements that rival the best from Switzerland.

The Orient Star watch featured below has a classic 38.5 millimeter case diameter, a gently domed crystal, an automatic movement that is self-winding, manual winding, and hacking.  It also has a 40 hour power reserve.
