Weak or Smart?

Postby theemaadhatter » Wed Jun 13, 2018 3:53 am

So with the posts about being weak...

I caved due to a great sale on an Orient Eclipse. I have wanted to try an Orient for a while and with the Eclipse already on sale $50 off, plus the 45% for Father's Day, it was time...to the tune of only $165 (org. $350). I have only had it a couple days and I am very very happy with this addition to the collection! More details (and pictures) in the blog post and video.

Seems a bargain to me. I like that bracelet, something a little different to the norm. Good addition that :thumbup:

So, in answer to the question - I say 'smart' buy

Yeah the bracelet is part of the reason I went with this model. To be honest, generally I'm not really a bracelet person, I prefer leather. I took a chance on this based on the specs, so it's midsize width (21mm) and with the case being 40mm, I was hoping the bracelet wasn't too heavy. Turns out it has quite the look with the brushed surfaces and polished interconnects, and it is quite comfortable!

Another vote for "smart".

I love it, completely unique looking without resorting to being ostentatious

I too late the case and bracelet. I'm not normally a fan of the open/skeleton look but that dial is really quite interesting. A great buy for the money!
