Anyone Seen this Orient Star Chrono in the Wild?

What we have here is the Orient Star Chrono WZ0021DY that was released JDM in 2012. It also comes in black dial though I really like this ivory version. Deals can be had on Yahoo Japan auctions for both new and used. I have bought JDMs from Yahoo Japan and the watches are always like 97+ coming from a culture that respects mechanical goods to the utmost. The yen is weak as hell too. The new ones are all in black and going for $1400, the whites are around $1000 used. Of course the big trap is if something happens to your watch which is why I often just buy from Higuchi as he will deal with any warranty issues. I've always wanted Orient Star to up their game and they seem to have done it here.

Well, considering that I've seen precisely one Orient in the wild that wasn't on my wrist (I think it was a guy wearing a Mako) I certainly haven't seen one of these. It certainly gives me a boner, though. Also, Orient uses Seiko auto chrono movements, so reliability shouldn't be an issue.

Same here...never seen one in the wild, although I do like that chrono...what is the calibre???

According the Kew in a 2012 WUS thread, it's a Seiko 6S28.
