This one pains me, such a superb watch and it has the OEM bracelet which was not cheap. Simply spent way too much on new pickups the past six months and I have to narrow it down somehow. I tend to wear dive watches more than sport watches (I have a lot of uses for a timing bezel), so this one has been sitting on the sidelines more than it should.

Let me know if any of you guys are interested.

Also, I'm going to be selling a few other pieces and potentially auctioning one or two special ones off with no reserve in the next couple weeks. Stay posted.

Edit: Reduced to $675 :twisted:

This is now SOLD via WUS. Thanks all for the interest and support.

I love me some world timers but I have to confess my ignorance that I'd never seen one implemented like that before.

I gather from the online descriptions that the hour hand is interlocked with the bezel bearing the city names such that whatever time zone is at 12 o'clock is the one displayed? Like if it was 3:20 in NYC and you cranked the bezel to Chicago the hour hand actually sets itself back an hour without losing track that it was at "whatever and 20 minutes" and suddenly displays 2:20?

That's slicker 'n snail snot!

That's a fantastic price for one of the best watches around for under a grand (street price.)

A bad time for me to not be on a watch buying spree. Hope someone here picks it up!

Alas, Mr. Gage, Orient Stars are usually difficult sells. No matter what their new price is, they're really undervalued on the secondary market. GLWS.

Yeah I've had that experience in the past. I just think the majority are unfamiliar with the level of quality and assume OS must be second fiddle to JDM Seikos in the same price range.

Thanks though, we'll see what happens.

If not for the date dial I'd probably bite. But old fucks like me need a date window. A BIG one

If I had the cash, I'd grab it in a second. If...

Beautiful watch, a model I've desired, and I love it. Conjuror Johnson is right!

This is really fucking absurd. One of you cheap bastards should sell some blood or something and buy this fucking watch already. The date wheel is so legible that even Mort could read it! Wearing Orient Star bracelets is like getting skull from Bree Olson!

I can't believe this watch is still available. Or that one of you cheap fucks haven't bought it yet.

Let me recap it for you dumbasses:

ORIENT STAR.

MANUFACTURE WORLD TIME AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT.

SAPPHIRE CRYSTAL WITH SUCH GOOD AR COATING IT FUCKING DISAPPEARS.

LINEN DIAL.

OS OEM BRACELET.

A HUNDRED BUCKS GOES TO UPKEEP OF THE FORUM.


Carry on.

I'm with you
Superb watch at a crazy price

I usually trade to get something I can sell to the "clueless"

When I buy a watch now, I try to assess future resale as I tire on watches so easily now
Heck, I remember Foghorn used to toss in a free watch to gain traction and I got so excited as a newbie. It was a Hamilton with free Timex.. Hope Fog Horn remembers it. LOL
A guy named Chase was critical of me buying it too. I was such a dope then.
Its a good watch, well built and CS is fantastic here
GLWS or "trade"
