    I think everyone is just hungrier for some deeper content.

    Have a good weekend all.

      What's not to like about a Sumo.
      Close inspection shows the lume is starting to sink in it's pots.
      Patina time.

        pedro, would you mind sharing the year of production? It would be good to know as random background anecdotal, thanks!

      This is awesome... you’ll be able to call it vintage, if it’s anything like ROLEX you’ll be able to make out it’s worth triple tehehe

          "Turtle" as in Certina, not Seiko ...With a awesome aesthetic of those DS, we're lucky there are tons of homages made.

          Like that wave-pattern dial. Reminds me of the original Oris Divers Date 300m (TT1) from 10 years ago. Somehow the texture suits this Samurai very well, in particular with the Pepsi bezel.

        Because it’s Auckland the storms gone & the suns already out again!

              Get a Bloke to make them for me due to my large wrist. I can pm you his details.

              Thanks. Very keen on the bronze version as well. Do a trade off now between it and a Tudor bronze.

            ORIENT STAR "CLASSIC" Vintage Series WZ0011DG


            A little uncommon, being in production for only a year following its release in mid-2009, this was Orient Star's revisit of their 1950s roots--back then, all Orient Star were dress watches. I first spotted it in the only catalog the Ref appeared in, the 2010 Orient Mechanical Watch Selection (JDM) catalog, and the line caught my eyes due to their beautiful reinterpretation of the era, in an appropriately-sized 38 mm gents watch with a double-dome crystal. Looking closely, the dial, Dauphine hands, and dog-leg lugs echo 1950s Omega Constellation Pie Pan, and having spent the first decade or two of my watch journey hunting vintage Constellation, these details brought a smile.

            What
            didn't appeal to me at all, back then, was the madman-style bracelet ...I just disliked the aesthetic of the end-links, and they remind me of those old watches on TradeMe that the seller stuck on a mismatch straight-end bracelet, all the while claiming the bracelet to be original to the watch. I thought the intentional gaps were unsightly, and if I ever bought this OS, the bracelet would come right off, replaced by leather straps.

            Lately however--and it could be that certain things need time to be properly appreciated (or could be I'm just getting old )--I see this bracelet, on this head, in a new light. It might be that this piece as a whole would otherwise be perfectly penned and proportioned, but the madman bracelet lends to it a feeling of radical conservatism with a dash of fearless defiance, a certain feeling of rebellion. It gives the whole an edge that is, somehow, unsettling but, at the same time, attractive.

              @Tempus: Yes, this preceded your Orient Star Classic Power Reserve by a year or two, and share a similar theme. Both reconnect with the bygone era of your Mars Orient.

            H. Earlier I was driving my Same tractor picking up a few bales. I have a bit of a soft spot or Italian machinery. Had a Same of some sort in the family for more than forty years. Nothing wrong with Massey's, I have a couple of Combines.
            Evening change. Liking this, one had it sitting in its box for a couple of years because I couldn't be bothered adjusting the PIA bracelet.

              Thanks for the wrist shot, 246. I must admit that I have not given this a proper look. Really awesome how the design somehow combines instrument-like functionality with a certain organic element, like how the asymmetry of the case continues on to the bracelet. Art/design museum-worthy.

            As you probably know I love the ability for a strap change. Never ceases to amaze how a simple strap change, breathes new life into a watch or simply changes the look completely, think:

            SEIKO SD600 on bracelet vs. Sinn rubber and deployment rubber; or
            Tudor Steel Gold on bracelet vs. Leather?

            Endless combinations to suit you style or requirements for the day.

            Having said that a good integrated bracelet, designed well, is hard to beat.

            Perhaps another thread is needed. Show us the same watch with strap alternatives?
