    I generally like Orient watches (proudly wearing Orient Star Worldtimer imported directly from Japan).
    I wanted to buy a slide rule watch, and almost ordered Orient WV0011FT, but… when I saw Citizen JY0000-02E I could not resist.
    I am kin on the mechanical watches. I have very good opinion about Orient. However finally I bought JY0000-02E. Sorry, dear Orient. I shall get back to you one day.

    Orient has some great mechanical watches, but unfortunately mechanical watches have a limit to thier functionality. I guess the Citizen Eco-drive watches pack a lot features too difficult to resist, from the alarm to the world time. Eco-drive is almost a substitue for automatic winding, no need to replace batteries. Personally, I also like the look of the WV0011FT. I just don’t like the idea of a leather strap.
