  • Heh, this is the first time I see a giveaway on your site since I subscribed. Hope I win it, love the watch & strap.

  • Beautiful watch! Would love to see it on the NATO. November 26, eh? Would make a FINE birthday present to add to my almost-non-existant-but-hopeful collection!


  • Woo Hoo! Another great review AND a giveaway?! I’m in!

  • Another great piece by orient and a great review from worn and wound. Keep up the good work.

  • Love the site, always nice to see you featuring watches other sites might overlook, like this one. Cool watch too.

  • Great watch and strap combo! I might even spring for them both.

  • This would be the perfect compliment to my collection!

  • 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! πŸ˜€

  • Sweet watch!

  • 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.

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

  • I have a Star Sapphire and I love it. The explorer looks really nice as well.

  • Awesome watch!

    Beautiful Beautiful watch! Would look awesome on my wrist. Keep the great reviews coming =).

  • I’ve been an Orient fan for a long time. It’s awesome that you guys are giving them such great exposure. Keep up the great work on the site!

  • 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!

  • You always have affordable & interesting watches. A great site for those watches we can afford. Keep up the good posts.

  • Finally some place where I can get up on my watch game.

  • I hope I win that delicious grey NATO! Keep up the good work w&w crew.

  • This is an awesome watch, good luck to everybody in the giveaway!

  • Great looking timepiece here, good luck to everyone!

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

  • 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!
