Orient Watch has tons of amazing products at unbelievable price points. With so many interesting designs and looks that are completely unique, it could make for a tough choice on which model you like best. One thing is for sure, if you love diving, or just even a bigger sports watch, you could easily become infatuated with the Orient M-Force Diver SEL06001H.
The Orient M-Force series is a collection of mechanical watches with a forceful design, hence the name M-Force. The nickname acquired by this specific series (which comes in 3 colors – black, blue and red) is The Beast, which is true to the name in every sense. This watch is indeed a beast at 47mm wide and 13.3mm thick. It’s definitely a large watch but it sits flat on the wrist. While there is not a lot of curvature to the case, it is impressive how well it wears. The overall design is really cool too. Very sharp with lots of block like parts protruding from the case sides, and bezel. I like the fact that the crown is on the left hand side as to not dig into your wrist since it is so large.
The dial color is one of my favorite attributes to this piece. The dark red hue with a metallic type trait to it looks spectacular, especially with the yellow accents on the hands . I couldn’t explain why, but the combo just “does it” for me. This look along with the black bezel and black chapter ring all pull together nicely. The layout is very legible with large heavy lumed hands, a 40 hour power reserve indicator at the 6 o’clock and date at 3 o’clock (which matches the size of the index near perfect). All of this is protected by a sapphire crystal to ensure it doesn’t scratch.
The 200m diver is ISO certified for diving, anti-magnetism, and shock resistance, making for an incredibly durable piece. In fact, the case has a special structure to absorb shock, which I think makes for a very cool special feature. The movement is Orient’s in house manufactured 40N5A which is made in Japan and has manual winding capability along with a hack feature to ensure accurate setting. The movement has 22 jewels and a rate of 21,600 bph. You would think with all these traits, the watch would be well over $1,000 if not $2,000, but far from it. Retail is only $795, but can be purchased directly through our website for $555.95 HERE. Orient still impresses me above and beyond with the quality product they make for the money.
Almost forgot to mention…. The lume is close to blinding! Gotta love that!
