    Orient Star made some really nice Rolex like watches around 2002-2008. They are pretty simple mechanically but the finishing is good and the bracelets excellent. They can often be had for less than £150 on japanese auction sites. What do you guys think of them? 20210417_110258.jpg

    Don't know much about them, but the look is good. Movements?

    Movements are tried and tested and made in house. Similar to Seiko workhorse movements in the way they are put together. Good everyday wearers.

    20210511_132725.jpg Another one of my Orients. I'm not precious about these and that is part of the joy of owning them.

    Change the bracelet to leather strap, feels more comfortable for my small wrist

    That's nice. I must say though that I find the Orient bracelets fantastic and have actually bought just bracelets to put on other watches. Out of curiosity is that the 34mm or the 37mm?
    They are the same except for the size.
