Sharp Watch Shout Out: Orient Automatic Hand-winding Watch with Sapphire Crystal

One brand I've always wondered about is Orient.  The company can trace it's lineage back to a watch shop founded in 1901.  They started mass producing watches in 1950.  Today, they are a wholly-owned subsidiary of Seiko-Epson. They have models that appeal to me on many levels from dive watches to classic watches like the Bambino.  

This watch recently caught my eye on Amazon.  It's from their classic collection and is simply known by Model Number RA-AK03.  It's an automatic hand-winding dress watch with a sapphire crystal.

To me, it's a great combination of masculinity and practicality and I like the sun and moon complication. If you're dressing sharp for a special occasion, it looks like the perfect watch choice. It has a neat layout, a readable day of the week subdial and a sun/moon subdial.  

Best of all, this is an affordable luxury watch.  If you'd like to check it out on Amazon, you can find it here:  Orient Men's Japanese Automatic/Hand-winding Watch with Sapphire Crystal (Model RA-AK03).
