Orient Men's 'M-Force Bravo' Japanese Automatic Stainless Steel Diving Watch, Color:Silver-Toned (Model: SEL0A001B0)
With its roots dating back to 1901, Orient Watch has specialized in the manufacture and growth of mechanical timepieces. Since 1950, Orient has been at the forefront of the production of mechanical watches in Japan. When it comes to watchmaking, Orient does not have an obscure history: Orient has been producing mechanical watches for more than 60 years. It is one of the top three watch manufacturers from Japan and produces 2 million watches per year. Frankly, it may be the biggest watch brand you‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈve never heard of. All of Orient‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈs movements are exclusively made in Japan and no iteration in manufacturing is outsourced. The implicit value of possessing an Orient watch is that the only way to enjoy its tremendous quality is through ownership.
Orient prides itself on the premise that its timepieces are a ‰ۡóÁÌÎ??watchmaker‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈs watch‰ۡóÁÌ_?-- a no frills mechanical watch that is robust and trustworthy.
- Our online reputation suggests that an Orient watch is reliable out of the box. This can be attributed to Orient‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈs undying dedication to mechanical watches.
- In the eye of the Quartz Revolution in the 1970s, the other top Japanese brands went on to predominantly manufacture quartz, while Orient remained focused on its mechanical movements. And while Orient does produce quartz watches, all movements are supplied by its parent company.
- So what‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈs the difference between quartz and mechanical? Despite the obvious difference in moving parts, the short answer is seen in the smooth sweeping second hand of a mechanical watch versus the choppy tick of a quartz movement.
As an in-house movement producer, Orient joins a short list of watch companies that actually manufacture their movements in-house and exclusively for their own use. In the industry, it is highly uncommon that a company produces their own movements in-house, and by doing so Orient Watch can ensure that the quality of their wristwatches are held to the highest standards‰ۡóÁÌÎ?ÌÎÌÕ Orient‰ۡóÁÌ_åÈs watches have often been lauded for their rich styling, dependability, and tremendous value.
If we had to choose only one watch to wear for a seemingly endless wilderness adventure, it would have to be an M-Force watch. Sure, they seem to be large and built like tanks, but the amount of heft included with each watch is necessary for the amount of features packed in. The M-Force is ISO-compliant in three standards: diving (ISO 6425), anti-magnetism (ISO 764) and shock-resistance (ISO 1413), all made possible by Orient's own case structure, which is exclusive to the M-Force line. Last year's M-Force Delta is now being followed by this summer's M-Force Bravo, a vibrant rendition from our storied sport watch collection. It goes without saying that the M-Force Bravo is the most colorful M-Force collection to date, and each model features a whimsical colorway that's full of eye-catching character. The power reserve gauge is centered at the one o'clock position, while the date is angled at the four. The IP coated bezel is 120-click and has a wide-toothed design that improves the grip. It's impressive lume has been applied to each hour marker, all four hands, and the large pip on the bezel, giving the watch an intense glow after a few minutes of light exposure.
