About this deal

The dial is also kept clean and refined, with minimal text, only containing ”Orient”, ”Automatic”, and ”Water resist”. All in all, the dial is nicely done with various elements complimenting each other in harmony. Truly a nice design. The use of short lugs will make sure that most wrists will be able to pull it off perfectly while also keeping the look of the watch compact and elegant. Where a lot of movements in this price range incorporate plastic parts, the 48473 is all metal. It’s widely known to be a tough, reliable movement. There are mixed feelings regarding accuracy, with the general consensus being that it’s not necessarily as accurate as it is consistent.

Beause mechanical watches are fairly durable and my understanding is that the problem is with the mainplate and not likely to fail again (even from USA to Australia. I also note the watch would have undertaken a similar journey from Japan to Australia); andThe Orient Symphony II also makes a great gift to a father, a brother, a son or a friend who may not know much about watches yet. The combination of affordable price and durability makes it easy on the wallet, and resilient to a new user who may not be familiar or want to deal with watch care. Although not everyone will fall in love with this kind of design, its conservatism and simplicity is something that I feel can be generally appreciated. In general, I like how Orient’s affordability allows me to try out styles and trends that have piqued my interest, without having to commit to a more expensive option. Rose gold, for example, is a very “now” choice for case metal. Seeing all the incredible rose gold models rolling out from everyone from Audemars Piguet to Omega, I started wondering what a nice dress watch of that hue would look like on my wrist. Aside from so-called missed opportunities, the brown crocodile-grain leather strap pairs well with the dial. Orient wisely decided to endow the Symphony with 22mm lugs, so you can swap said strap out easily enough if you want to. The average turnaround time for repairs is 6-8 weeks, but it would likely be much longer at this time due to our service station being closed as a result of COVID-19, plus the transit time each way.

It is simple and minimalistic, but at the same time, the dial is beautifully finished, ensuring that you will never get bored of it. This is an exceptionally well-balanced timepiece, and this obviously goes very well together with its name, Symphony. So, you're declining service and you're also declining assistance to reach out to your parent company in Japan? The repair I wanted to my Orient, from Orient USA, was for a new leather strap. That’s it. Similar experience, “We can’t do anything.” Thank goodness I was able to get it done in Japan from a local watchmaker who reached out and Lord knows how he did it. But it got done. And it was very high-quality, and actually on-brand. Amazing. Clearly over here artisans take pride in their craft. That may not be the case forever, I see this trend and tailoring and other special services losing their generational oomph due to - aging and no replacement. the pics don't do it justice. very nice, simple looking watch. i guess you could call is classic looking. if that's what you're looking for, don't hesitate!!The case has a 22mm lug width and is available either with a stainless steel bracelet or a leather strap. The one you choose depends on your taste and preference. But obviously, the stainless steel bracelet gives it a sporty look and the leather strap option is more suitable if you want something more dressy and classy. Thanks to the short lugs, the watch will also fit most wrists without it looking huge. The slim and short lugs also go very well with the purpose and concept of this watch. wore this watch the first day it arrived an had great comments...wares well,the perfect everyday/nite timepiece for me.
