    ORIENT M-FORCE 200M DIVER WV0021DV AUTOMATIC TITANIUM (Or the Other Orient 200 JDM)



    So previously I covered the Orange SEL03003M Orient diver and a few days ago the other watch I wanted to look at as a New Monster (JDM) alternative arrived from Seiya. While the box and generally packaging were the same as the US SS version the amount of protective wrapping on the Ti watch was about 50% greater. Once unwrapped and looking at the case the first thing apparent is it the brushed areas are finished at least three times better than the SS and very uniform. While I would not call the edge lines sharp they are tighter and sharper than the SS watch. On this watch the power reserve meter is lost , but a nicer hair larger Ti case, and Ti bracelet with the crown at the 3 is gained. The Ti shaves off 50 grams of weight from the SS weighing in at 156 grams. The dial is 1mm larger(32mm) than the SEL, the case is 48mm wide and 50mm L-L. Both use the weird 23mm bracelets with the WV being Ti (except for the internal clasp mech). The clasp on the Ti version operates far more sturdy than the SS and the secondary latch takes about 1/3 of the force to close. The Bezel is 100% DLC coated with white numbers and a lumed pip at the 12. On the dial the indexes are different and there is a Arabic numbers at the 12 and 6. The second hand has a classic red tip and the black dial is contrasted by the yellow chapter ring on this version. As noted in the other review I'll give it a month to settle in before timing. The Lume is a little yellow tint to it on this model. Personally the little extra case length allows the bracelet on this to be sized more to the tighter side which I prefer with big watches. So this is plus the less weight make this more comfortable to me. The price difference is $387 verses $305 for the SS.

    Nice looking, especially the color combo.

    With those big hands and indices, I'll bet it just glows in the dark.
