Fratello's Give Away: Orient Automatic Watch

A few months back, I had a chance to review an Orient wrist watch and I was pretty amazed by the quality and accuracy of this Orient watch. Now, Orient USA is giving away one of their automatic watches to a lucky reader of FratelloWatches.

Although the watch pictured above is the one Orient is giving away this time at FratelloWatches, the CEM75001B and CEM65002D are two of Orient’s diver watches really worth checking out as well. The give away watch is a 37mm dressy time piece with a day/date feature. The cool sunburst dial colour really makes it stand out from the crowd. This great three star Orient watch is a great daily watch with its 50 meters of water resistance and a power reserve of 40 hours.

To be able to win this watch, there are only two requirements:
- leave a comment with a valid e-mail address;
- you need to be a US resident (will make up soon for all non-US residents with another cool Italian give away!!);

Let me know what you think of Orient watches in the comments and the one above could be yours! A winner will be picked on the 6th of August and the watch will be shipped for free to your US address.

    Their dive watches are very cool – esp the Maco on bracelet.

    I love my own Orient Star rose gold watch as well. Great watch with great finishing. An example of the great Japanese watch making.

    I’ve always liked the look of Orient watches and just bought my first one recently.
    To me, they’re like Seikos – reliable, well-designed and affordable, but I think Orient watches tend to be more unique and attractive. Love the bronze dial on this one. Great giveaway. Good luck everyone!

    the first watch I ever bought was an Orient Semi-Skeletonized. Great Brand, Awesome Value.

  7. Jack Burton Reply

    Very clean and elegant looking watch amongst an industry that can produce those too complicated for a day-to-day or watch that accents an outfit rather than overpower it.

  8. Stan Reply

    Good idea for a contest.

  9. Jack Reply

    Very cool watch

  10. Mark Reply

    Looks like nice watch to me!

    Beautiful time piece. Wouldn’t mind showing this thing off to all my friends.

  12. Francis Reply

    To me, Orient watches are the most interesting choice of affordable mechanical watches, produced by a true watch manufacturer – where the movement to the final execution of the timepiece is all accomplished in-house.

  13. Frank M Reply

    Really nice watch. Would love to add one to my collection.

  14. Elliott Reply

  21. steven serrano Reply

    Must be honest, I never owned a Orient watch however, I do like the design of many of the models and the price point. You should not have to take out a loan to buy a good watch.

  22. Will Eagle Reply

    I like the sunburst dial, it has a retro luxury feel, and the metal bracelet has a warm tone that matches the face nicely.

    I also like the sapphire blue of the Orient CEM65002D (http://bit.ly/cXNWGW)

    The watch is very nice, however, I have already got a VC overseas. I think the two are clashed with each other. May it to a elegant owner just like itself. :)

    I love Orient watches so much that they have become essential components of my time machine.

    As you all can imagine, accuracy is everything when it comes to traveling in time – arriving at your destination one second later or earlier can have disastrous effects on the space-time continuum. Errors such as these can spawn innumerable paradoxes and alternate realities, severely damaging reality as we know it.

    In my travels, I’ve made gifts of Orient watches to such figures as Napoleon Bonaparte, Nikola Tesla and Lord Horatio Nelson. These great men all marveled at the quality and craftsmanship inherent in these fine timepieces.

    Unfortunately, my supply of Orient watches is dwindling dangerously low and I require at least one more for my upcoming trip to 16th Century Japan. Emperor Go-Yōzei has expressed an interest in all things western and has promised me hand of his beautiful daughter, Princess Shōkō, if I can deliver unto him an object of uncompromising beauty and grace.

    Please, help make my time travel adventures complete by awarding me with this wonderful watch. All of history awaits your decision.

    Dear Friend!
    I’m an owner of my old Orient watch. I’m using my watch a many years.
    I never fixed it. All what I had to do was this.
    I changed the dial and hands because after a long time
    the special paint became weak and I could not see the time in a dark.
    And one more thing I had to do. When I got this watch, the accuracy was about 15 sec per day.
    I found the way how to adjust accuracy without any special tools. I mean, I can adjust the length of pendulum spring very easy, even in microns. My watch runs now with accuracy about 3-4 sec per week. I could bring it down to zero, but I did not do it, because in a summer time the watch runs a little slower and in a winter time it runs a little faster. When I say “a little”, I mean a couple of seconds. If somebody’s watch does not have a high accuracy, the owner can not see the difference between cold and hot conditions for the watches. Somebody does not care about accuracy at all, but I do.
    That’s why I did it.
    The watch you shown looks very nice.
    The color and style of the dial, nice looking hands, everything is just great. It is classic style watch.
    Everybody wants it.
    I appreciate the Orient Company for making high quality watches!
    Sincerely, Vladimir

    While I don’t own an orient watch yet, their deals look really tempting for new watches.  I may wait for the holidays, if I don’t win this one.  These are nice, and well respected watches, and I look forward to owning one.

  104. Samanmalik Reply

    i love the design of watch & i want to win it at any cost.

  105. William Dupree Reply

         I like manual watches which display fine craftsmanship, but I also like fine watches that display both technology and craftsmanship.  I think that the Orient’s dive watches display both fine craftsmanship and engineering
    which makes them a unique addition to anyone’s watch collection displaying the highest quality and engineering in watch making.  To have one of these watches is truly owning a piece of exquisite watchmaking.

  106. Dannyboymuzik Reply

    These watches seem to have great style and great options on them I would definitely rock one of these amazing watches cuz I am a watch fanatic lol but hey great product
