I have been collecting watches for many years but this Orient is probably my first rose gold watch ever. I have been looking around for an ideal rose gold watch and have considered Seiko models such as SARC018 and SRP188. This Orient fits my requirement because of its classic design. It is exactly what I had in mind.
A visitor from Japan brought me this watch recently. Seiko made a lot of nice mechanical watches in the 2000s. I don’t think I will ever collect them all but I’m happy to add this to my collection.
I got this Brightz Phoenix diver a couple of weeks ago as my last purchase of the year. This watch has some similarities with the new 7s36 diver (SKZ325K) but I actually got it a few weeks before the SKZ325K hit the market.
Before I post a review, here’s a quick un-boxing post.
