As far as value-packed, mechanical watches go, Orient makes some of the best out there. Their newest model, the Kano, is a vintage-inspired diver with a distinct look from the rest of the brand’s catalog, and some new finishing techniques and a simplified design result in a capable diver that’s great for everyday wear. Let’s take a closer look at the specs.
If you’re searching for a slightly larger watch, the Kano fits the bill. At 44mm wide, the stainless steel case is on the larger side, but given the 12.9mm case thickness, the proportions are well-balanced. That said, while I like the watch quite a bit at 44mm, I think if they shrunk it down to 40-42mm it would be perfect.
