Orient Mako II Japanese Automatic Steel Diving Watch

Orient FAA02002D9Buy on Amazon

 The first watch we’re taking a look at on this list of the best Orient watches for men is this Orient Mako II. It’s a Japanese diving style watch that runs on a quality Japanese automatic movement. Another great diving watch I’d recommend is the Steinhart Ocean 1. As you’d expect from a diving type watch, this Orient timepiece has a high visibility display with bold hands and hour markers that are coated in lume for easier reading in dim lit conditions. There’s a handy day and date display on the dial and it also features a 120 click uni-directional coin edged bezel. It has a 200m water resistance rating that should prove suitable for most people’s needs.

2. Orient 2nd Generation Bambino Ver 1 Japanese Automatic Stainless Steel Dress Watch

Orient FAC00005W0Buy on Amazon

 The domed design of the dial and mineral crystal of this watch gives it that classic dress style finish. This Orient watch runs on a high quality Japanese automatic movement that’s powered by the movement of the wearer’s wrist, meaning you’ll never have to change a battery. This watch only has a 30m water resistance rating so it wouldn’t be suitable for the range of activities that the previous model is.

There’s a useful day and date display located at the 3 o’clock position as well as a 120 click unidrectional bezel. Powering the watch is a F6922 automatic hand-winding hacking 22 jewel movement. Like the first Orient watch features, this model also has a 200m water resistance rating.

5. Orient Men’s 2nd Gen Bambino Ver 2 Japanese Automatic Leather Strap Dress Watch

Orient FAC00009N0Buy on Amazon

 Up next in our list of the best Orient watches for men is this dress style watch with a domed mineral crystal glass and dial. It features a decent Japanese made automatic movement and has this vintage style dial. I love the hint of colour they’ve gone for with the deep blue of the hands, it really makes them pop and draws your eye in. Being a dress style watch, it does only have a 30m water resistance rating.

6. Orient Ray II 41mm Steel Bracelet Automatic Watch

Orient FAA02005D9Buy on Amazon

 I wouldn’t blame you for thinking this is exactly the same model as the first watch shown on first glance. To be fair it is a very similar watch. The different being the thicker design of the hands and the use of bold dots for the hour markers rather than numeral and standard markers. This Orient watch has a 200m water resistance rating, day and date display, and runs on a automatic movement.

Orient FAC08004D0

Buy on Amazon

 Here we have another classic Orient watch with the vintage style domed crystal and dial design. The watch features a mineral crystal glass for a good level of scratch protectiong and runs on a Japanese automatic movement. As it’s a dress style watch, this model only has a 30m water resistance rating.

  1. Hi
    I was given an Orient Automatic 21 Jewels watch by a man who use to be an ambassador for the UK in Africa. I have searched the internet and also made phone calls to watch specialists in England, however I cant find this model on line and the person I spoke had never heard of the brand name.
    The serial number on the rear of the watch is:
    H469858A-6A PR

    It has a gold plated metal strap with gold surround and gold face. The glass on the face has a ridged look to it.
    I will send a photograph hen I get a reply.
    I hope you can help,
    Kind regards,
    Daryl Crumley

  2. I’d like to see more details in your Orient watches review. Where are the watches made? Are they good quality? Should I go for their expensive watches or just stick to the more affordable ones?

    Thanks for your time
