This is my first time I've heard of Royal Orient . I believe Orient no longer sells them on the Orient US website.

Thanks. I could of sworn I read on another forum, someone mentioned they did sell them at one point but stopped?

As far as I know, ROs are extremely rare beasts--OUSA never got their hands on them, and they can only be found on a couple of the Japanese etailing sites. I'd assume, from their horrendous costs, they're probably only sold in a few very high-end jewelers in Japan.

I've only seen owners pics of them a couple of times, over at WUS.

I was on Ebay checking them out damn they are expensive. Cheapest model for sale on Ebay is around $1,800 there is one there for $5,000+

Yup. I've seen a couple at Rakuten (a very basic three-hander, like your last pic above) for around $1600.

The RO is sold Japan domestic only as far as I know. 5000 was around the price range I was looking at, in that range from what I've read it is on par with a GS.
