It's good to hear that recipients of the beautiful Orient Star Classic are pleased with their watches. However, I'm beginning to wish I had never joined in with this drop. Living in Britain, my watch slowly made its way to London Heathrow thanks to USPS. Having got there I understand that it is being held by Customs Clearance , a customs handling company. According to the USPS website, they've had the parcel for 48 hours but I have heard nothing. I emailed them through their website and have heard nothing. I now find that I could have obtained this watch for the same price from Creation Watches and would have received it a while ago. All things considered, this experience makes me think that Massdrop is not for us Brits and that saddens me.

Mine just came in and overall the watch is extremely well made (including the gift box is absolutely overkill). Even with my 6 inches chicken wrist, size of the watch looks fine. The movement is super quiet and fully decorated with basic Geneva pattern (when you think about those overpriced 2824-2 or lower end Seiko). However, I've noticed something unusual, there is a even gap about 0.5mm wide between the bezel and the casing (see attached photos). I looked that up on YouTube and apparentlly other people's seem to be the same exhibiting that gap underneath the bezel. This is kind of unusual and different to my other dress watches, as over time that area might accumulate dirt within (I know you don't dive into the mud with a dress watch, but still). Nevertheless, this watch still provides a lot more than what you paid for.

Judging by the model no. I believe should be the export/US version. Do you know what's the differences between the two? I'm thinking to join the drop as well.

Reminds me of the Squale GMT Tropic Ceramica I saw from a seller on eBay who wanted $3000 because it was a "Limited Edition" and "Not available in USA". So I went to Gnomon (for whom it's made exclusively) and its listed at 790 I think. Kinda ridiculous that eBay doesn't regulate scammy sellers like that.

Note to MD: Bought the hamster-in-a wheel "automatic movement" last drop; really love'n it! Only down side is that you have to water it once a day and sometimes it makes squeaky noises (that and the pile of little brown pellets I find on the nightstand each morning)--but it does keep excellent time. Thanks for the recommendation!

If it didn't have that date window it would be a great watch. But Orient struggles with date windows, esp. with the Bambino (garbage watch - don't buy it). They don't even frame it half the time, so it comes across looking like a goofy, accidental hole in the dial. I hate date windows in general, and this one is distracting. I saw this during Black Friday for $179 brand new from LIW so if they rerun the same sale this year, it might be wise to hold out.

First selling point mentioned in the copy: "For one, its polished indices and two-toned hands twinkle when the watch is held at different angles." Yup, twinkling hands are right up there at the top of my list when looking for a dress watch: "Say Bob, show Martha how your hands twinkle." Then there's this informative bit of watch-expert repartee: "Another unique feature is the power reserve indicator spanning from 11 to 1 o’clock...The indicator provides a reading of the remaining battery life on the 40N52 automatic movement." Always damn handy to know how much battery life you have left in your automatic watch! Note to MD: assign these phone toting, never owned a watch, generation Snap Chat children to the Board Games & Mechanical Keyboard Community and hire someone who knows less about twinkle and more about frig'n watches!

No matter how you shake it this is a really good deal for this Orient Star Classic. I bought mine used several years ago and paid about $225. I didn't even get the color choice I really wanted. Back then these were hard to come by at a decent price. Now I'm thinking about getting the stainless steel white dial with silver hands (version I originally wanted) and then selling my older one.

Disagree. Acrylic scratches too easily. I've had Orients with domed mineral crystals and they stayed scratch-free.
