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.
