Does anyone have experience ordering from outside the usa? I live in The Netherlands and I want to order but i’m having doubts. Drop is totally new to me.

The ray 2 offers a lot of bang for the buck and is Orients hallmark. Love mine.

I bought the orange dial version with the bracelet in the last drop, which I think is a bargain at only $124. In my opinion this watch out classes the Seiko SKX models for the money, which have much higher street prices. Also, the orange is not readily available in the US except through gray market dealers. It has hardly left my wrist since receiving. The only reason I'm not wearing it today is I'm doing yard work, which means my Casio digital beater get some wrist time.

Easily one of the most beatiful and complemented watches in my collection. Get it if you can.

"all this shit"- pretty extreme reaction. My point is that this drop really isn't a great deal.

Sorry, I did not know if this was some affiliate link. Seemed so sketchy -- Sears website, ebay purchase, Jomashop in the end.

If mine is fast (like 3+ min/day), since this is grey market origin, should I contact Orient for factory adjustment or just go to a local watch place for regulation? thanks for the advice

If your feeling brave you can adjust it yourself. Check out a couple vids on youtube and just be patient when doing it.

This falls in the same "Rolex Submariner homage" category as the Invicta 8926-OB, but: -- Orient branding -- Higher price -- I'd guess a slightly nicer bracelet -- Day of week; no cyclops -- Less homagey handset -- No exhibition back to see the movement -- Orient movement vs. Seiko NH35A on the Invicta -- Same advertised depth rating, but Invicta's waterproofing has been called into question The Invicta is generally somewhere north of $80, but I've heard of it for $50. There is something to be said for having a really cheap, disposible watch.

Are you kidding me? ) Ray is not a homage. All diver watches will resemble their father Rolex submariner. This doesnt make them automatically homage. Ray has a unique design, very beautiful dial and almost perfects size. Superb finish for the price and an in-house reliable movement. Invicta is just a rolex copy toy compared to it.

I think the Mercedes handset on the Orient is not some sort of wild coincidence. It's a pretty crappy, hard-to-read handset. The only reason you'd have it is to evoke the Rolex. The Invicta has an NH35A, which is a perfectly fine Seiko-Epson group movement. I love Orient and OrientStar watches. I have four of them, versus only one Seiko. But I don't think the movements are really that notable. In fact, two of my OrientStar movements are non-hackable, non-windable (and have tiny seconds complications), which is a blessing in disguise, since I don't worry about how closely I set the time. I think Orient movements are just old movements they designed before they started to have financial troubles, with the company ultimately being acquired by and merged with Seiko-Epson. Seiko and Citizen have been investing in new tech and new movements of all kinds; Orient had been peddling old automatic movement designs simply because they didn't have the R&D money to do anything else. I predict Orient-branded watches will have Seiko-Epson movements within five years.

That's a Mako in the link, not a Raven

disappointing, it is only $10 cheaper than on amazon, but without their fast shipping and after sales support. Do better massdrop.
