    I just got recently. It was one of those nos Orient SK watches that have been for sale on Ebay for some time now. Negatives...
    1. The bracelet that came with it was really cheap. Folded links and a poor fit to the watch imo.
    2. Looking at the movement I could see some rust on a few screws.
    3. The dial is not perfect. Looking at it 10x I thought I saw some dust on the dial but it turned out to be a few spots where the paint isn't perfectly applied. That said you would never notice unless you looked at it with some magnification.
    4. Touchy regulating it. I think it will settle in though.
    5. The lume is on the weak side.

    Positives...
    1. Mandarin/ English day wheel. I love seeing the day of the week in Mandarin.
    2. All the o rings are as new.
    3. Lexan crystal. I no longer buy any watch unless it has a lexan or sapphire crystal.
    4. The internal bezel has good resistance.

    I just put it on a tropic strap today. Now that it is on the strap I wanted for it I absolutely love it.
