    WORN&WOUND! Greetings all the way from Singapore! The beautifully crafted Orient Explorer + NYC NATO giveaway is such a perfect combination, not a need but a WANT. This would make an awesome Christmas gift! Hoping for all the best from the other side of the world! 😀

  • http://URL Matthew

    Sweet watch!

  • http://www.about.me/mikepetrucci Mike P.

    This is an amazing watch and would make an incredible prize! My dad travels all over the world (he even had to get a few inserts for his Passport) and needs a quality watch. But he’s not one to ever ask for anything either.

    When I ask what he wants for Christmas or his birthday, he simply replies, “Just be a good boy.” I’m 27 and he has always done this.

    Well, if I win this watch, it’s going to him. A world traveller needs the right watch. Whether it’s speaking at a church in Romania, cramped on a boat in Bangladesh, or exploring the Red Square in Russia, he needs a fitting timepiece.

    Thanks to worn&wound and Orient Watch USA for running this contest. I know that whoever wins will enjoy it.

  • http://URL Dan S

    This would be great for my father in law! We’ve been wanting to get him a watch for a while.

    I own an Orient ETACOO5W that I wear as a dress watch. I couldn’t be more impressed with the company and the caliber of their automatic movements. I would love to own the pinnacle of their design and technology, the Explorer.

    Cool giveaway. I must say, this site’s review of the Nighthawk is what inspired me to get one.

  • http://URL Dennis C

    I love how they don’t use a 4th hand for the GMT, and the power reserve meter is pretty cool too!

    Very curious to see how the NATO strap looks on the Explorer.

  • http://URL Darren Excell

    I work in a high end jewellers store to get a bit of cash while I’m studying at university, and am continually left feeling disappointed that the watches I deal with are well beyond my meager student means! I spent ages looking for a watch I could wear, at a price I can manage and that had the features I wanted, that I would be proud to have on while at work and came across this Orient. Feeling like it might have been too good to be true, I searched for a review on this watch and the detailed write up and high quality YouTube video was just what I was looking for! I’m sold on it, and to see that there’s a competition to win it just as I found it was just fantastic luck! Thanks for the opportunity to get a hold of this great piece and for the great review. I look forward to having this on my wrist one way or another!

    I’ve always been curious about Orient. It seems like a great value, given the in-house movement.

  • http://URL Christopher Chia

    I stumbled onto the brand Orient while researching online for the Tissot Visodate dress watch. I’ve since changed my mind and would be buying a Bambino instead of the Visodate.

    Orient makes value for money watches, what a company!
