Why do I want more watches? Why?
This one is just calling to me. I know it is a Rolex Submariner homage, but it is a pretty one.
It is an Orient 2ER00004D, a hair over $100, just $110 on Amazon. It looks remarkably like the Rolex 16613.
As you can see, on the wrist, they look almost identical. For your bank account, the Rolex list price is $9300, on-line price is $7626. The list price for the Orient is $220, most on-line sellers have it for $120 to $130, saving you about $7500. Both have in house movements. The Rolex is a true diver’s the Orient, just 100M water resistance. It is about as close an homage can be without being a ‘replica’ aka fake watch. It has a bit of bling, but I like two tone watches. When will it stop? How many should I collect before stopping?
By the way, the photos of the Orient are from this site. Very nice blog about Orient watches.by
