    I have to hand it to Orient. I like the Bambino and this Sparta looks like a much more expensive watch than it actually is. Nicely done modern interpretation of military and pilot watch elements.

    I think this is one of the best affordable novelties to get right now.Various strap combinations just go through my head..mostly rubber and NATO..

  109. Steve says:

    Great review on this watch, it really makes me want to go out and get one.

  118. Terpxxx says:

    Nice looking watch. You state 50m while yhe watch dial says 100m. Which is it? 50 or 100m makes no differece as it still looks good,

    i’ve been meaning to get an ORIENT… very cool. good luck.

  146. Stephen says:

    Great review!

  156. Pete says:

    I had never seen the Sparta before this review…I think it is probably one of the most utilitarian pieces Orient has put out. A beautiful daily wear anyone would be proud to own.

  199. Nate says:

    This is an awesome watch. Great job Orient!

  200. Evan says:

    something nice ๐Ÿ™‚

  201. mikeymusic says:

    When I first saw the W&W review I tried to buy this watch! However, since I live in Canada Orient USA would not sell it to me. Even though the web site was designed with Canadian addresses and postal codes available to be entered, it was no go! So this is my attempt to get my hands on this very desirable piece. I have a few of the Seiko 5’s and this seems like a larger, more dressy day/date version.

  202. Simon says:

    Beautiful. I need it !

  203. Jimmy says:

    Nice looking watch!

  204. What a nice watch! Great giveaway! I’ll keep my fingers crossed!

    Wow! What a great chance chance to get a phantastic watch!. Thanks to Worn&Wound for the initiative and to Orient USA for the watch!

  211. Joseph says:

    Cool watch! Thanks for the giveaway!

  212. Romeu says:

    Quite interesting that I had bookmarked the review of this watch on w&w just the other day. Planing to get an Orient piece one of these days and this one stroke me as being quite distinguishable from their collection. Nice one!

  213. anthony says:

    i like the semi circle “day” cut away

  214. I had never seen the Sparta before this review. Thank you warnandwound for posting this and the give away.

    Great details on this watch ! I would love to have one !

    Anyway, thanks for the review, great website.

  251. Bruno says:

    I’m really starting to come around on these Orient watches,

  252. Great review, really like this model!

  253. Matt says:

    I’d love to have that as a (most) every day watch!

  254. Great looking watch

  255. Ankit says:

    Orient Always classic… timeless.. black and yellow…

  256. Chris says:

    This wonderful site is run by some wonderful, amazing, wonderful, handsome, wonderful men. Who are awesome and stuff.

    It really is a great site, and the giveaways are very cool!

  257. Zookasan says:

    Great looking watch. I just discovered worn&wound – awesome site!

  258. rob845 says:

    Just a beautiful looking piece

  259. D Morrow says:

    This watch gives the appearance of being much larger than it is, which is nice for those that want the look of a watch that makes a statement without being too large for smaller wrists. I am wondering which Worn&Wound strap would look best with it.

  260. Art says:

    Orient offers more stylish time pieces compared to their Japanese competitors and reasonably priced. The Sparta is a fine example that offers great looks, legible dial, good colour combinations and sized just right. This watch’s looks will look good whether you choose to wear it for formal occasions or on weekends.

  261. DC says:

    The Sparta would make a nice addition to my watch collection!

  262. Mo G says:

    Sweet looking piece would go nicely with the Ray!

  263. Andy Black says:

    Cool looking watch! Hope I win it!

  264. David says:

    This is a handsome watch. I have a swiss army field mechanical that reminds me of this. I want one!

  265. Eric says:

    Great site, love the in-depth reviews and alternate band pairings! I used your info when deciding on a Sparrowhawk II recently.

    Here’s to hoping I win, I think a free watch is the only one my wife will not kill me over! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  266. Jason L says:

    Great looking watch! Hoping to win but If I don’t win it here, I do believe that I’d buy it eventually!

  267. David says:

    VERY nice watch…clean lines…GREAT price.

  268. Dave says:

    …well done !!

  297. Gustavo says:

    i’ve been looking for a nice watch to buy for quite some time now, and everyday i check worn & wound. it’s a joy when i find new reviews!
    as for the orient timepiece, it looks really nice and unique, incredible value for money, and seems like a perfect watch for everyday use!

  298. Wes says:

    Beatiful military inspired watch. Love how the bezel matches the grey tones of the dial. Keep up the great reviews W&W!

  299. Kathryn says:

    Love this watch! ๐Ÿ™‚

  300. Looks like another great addition to the Orient family. I’d love to take one of these home.

  301. Bart says:

    Would make for a nice everyday watch for me.

  302. Alex says:

    Interesting watch and another great review

  303. Dennis C says:

    I’m a big fan of how they present the day of the week.

    this watch really makes me drool! Really nice design from orient!

  305. Dave says:

    Would love to have this watch!

  306. Edwinek says:

    This is a really nice watch. I like the colour of the watch face specifically.

  307. Would be a nice daily beater.

    Best regards,


  311. Rafael E says:

    I’m a recent fan of Orient and reading the reviews here is the primary reason why I’ve started collecting watches. Hope I get the Sparta! It’s not available in this part of the world…

  312. Sean Walsh says:

  322. Ira says:

    Another great review W&W!
    Orient never disappoints!

  323. Robert says:

    never bought an orient before, but this watch looks so awesome!

  324. Thanks for the review. This is the 2nd watch review that I read here that make me wana get one immediately. The first was the Seiko SNZH53 which I got it after a few hours of reading the review here.

    Alas, the Sparta is not available in my country, the Orient dealer does not have it.hmmm….

  325. Lee says:

    Hey Hey! Looks svelte!

    Nice style. Particularly like the elongated day window.

  328. Dayle says:

    Love the site and reviews. Im hooked…haev decided to change my collection from all battery operated chronos etc to only automatics and solar watches. Worn&Wound has been a great resource.

    This is a beautiful watch. Thanks for bringing us the review!

  349. the please click here at the end doesn’t work ๐Ÿ˜‰

  350. Rdagostin says:

    Nice watch. Vintage look with some unique aspects. This might be my first orient

  351. Great watch — nice look and love the DOW. I’m guessing it would make a nice addition to my collection.

  352. Can I have this watch?
    My lovely dovey Boyfriends is really like this watch and i want take this for bday give in next month.

    ^o^ ^o^ ^o^ ^o^ ^o^

  353. Tyreko says:

    Stumbled onto this blog after searching for reviews of the Sparta – & not only did you do a tremendous review (great photos) of the watch, you’re also giving one away !

    Best watch review site ever ? Yep.

  354. Hendra says:

    Great review, almost bought the watch after I read it…. but I guess I’ll wait til the giveaway is over ๐Ÿ™‚

  355. Dave N. says:

    Fun looking watch. Not one that I would ever buy myself, but if it was given to me then I’m sure I’d wear it a lot on the weekends for a fun change of pace. As always, great value for money from Orient.

  356. watcher says:

    Nice watch nice giveaway

  357. Victor says:

    This would be a wonderful birthday present *5/19*cough.

  358. Kazu says:

    Thank you very much for the great review.
    As a native Japanese living in USA, I hope the Orient watch will become more popular to a wider audience around the world by being recognized of their quality. Many thanks to the fan of Orient watch on Worn & Wound and everyone here who put great comments for this giveaway. Love you all.

  359. Pete says:

    Lovely watch!

  360. The design is a good “mash-up” of a diver’s, pilot, vintage etc. A bit large-ish but 48mm lug to lug makes it fit small wristed folk like me!

  361. Mike says:

    I would have a lot more money to my name if it weren’t for these convincing and well written reviews. I think I have been bitten by the bug again.

    Keep up the great work!


  362. Brandon says:

    Love the site and reviews, keep the watches coming!

  363. Great looking watch. Orient has a lot of value for the money.

  372. Sasank says:

    Awesome site ๐Ÿ™‚

  373. Paul says:

    Discovered Orient on this site – and just received a Bambino the other day! Very happy with it BTW. The Sparta would be a great addition . . .

  374. Mike says:

    Great site…thanks!

  375. Matt Regan says:

    Would love this watch! Hope I win!

  376. Calvin says:

    I enjoyed your video review; the videography was good and the review informative. Orient makes really nice affordable timepieces with quality to back it up.

  377. Such a very nice watch, the more I see Orient the more impressed I become.

  378. Tagdude says:

    This Orient watch is definitely a “must have” to my collection. It’s functional design, military style and competitive price is very attractive. I look forward to wearing it soon.

  379. David says:

    I dig the yellow over the days of the week. Love your site too. Check it daily.

  380. Sri says:

    I really like the yellow over the previous and next day. Wish orient would use sapphire instead of mineral on more of their watches.

  381. Another classic from Orient. Thanks for the review.

  382. Jandrese says:

    Cool watch, keep up the good work!

  383. Ben says:

    Great looking watch, thanks for the review and giveaway

    PS – you guys always have the best giveaways.

  389. Chris J says:

    A good review of what looks to be a good watch.

  390. Dan says:

    I like it. Wish it had 24mm lugs though… But I like it.

  391. Tim Bascom says:

    This is a very impressive looking watch….especially given what it “doesn’t” cost. ๐Ÿ™‚

  392. Niv A says:

    I am always eager to read the reviews you guys do! Love the site, love the watches, keep it up!

  393. Tyler says:

  403. Martin says:

    Need a new watch! Please pick me.

  404. Swilly says:

    A watch fit for kings and queens.

  405. Erin M says:

    I’d love to win this watch for my husband!

  406. Zach M says:

    Thanks for the informative reviews and fun giveaways!

  407. Drake says:

    i can almost guarantee i won’t get this

  408. Tomasz says:

    Great watch! Maybe I will win this time… Who knows? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  409. Ken says:

    Hmm my bday is coming up…..would be a great present lol

  410. Ben L says:

    Hopefully this will be my second Orient! A great looking watch!

  411. Blair R says:

    Seems liks a nice watch.

  412. Paul D says:

    Handsome watch. Orient has a class and their own style. They often have eye catching watches of their own creation. I am not seriously considering an Orient for myself and son.

  413. Nate M says:

    Orient as a brand and the Sparta watch both receive an “A” for effort.

  414. Olafur H says:

    What a good looking watch, a nice mix of design and simpleness

  415. Keep up the good work W&W!

  416. Jake says:

    I really like the arrow second hands and it looks great on this watch. I’m not sure if I like the yellow over the other days though.

  417. Andrew says:

    I quite like this watch. Thank you for the chance.

  418. Rahul says:

    Great looking watch.

  419. Vik says:

    Own the Orient Explorer, great watch and company, they do good work, and as usual this one seems to hit all the marks, great watch.

  420. Joey says:

    Always unsure about this brand, but the design looks great!

  421. I love reading your reviews. This would be a very nice watch to do one of my own on. ๐Ÿ˜€

  422. Diederik says:

    I am in fact in the market for a military inspired watch ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks W&W!

  423. Bob S. says:

    Good looking watch. Nice giveaway!

    (hope I win)

  424. Great site ! Regularly reading your reviews and buying based on them . Thanks for being there, keep it up !

  425. Albin says:

    Looks nice, wouldn’t mind one of those at all.

  426. Brian says:

    I would love to add that to my collection!

  427. Merih says:

    looks really nice with a nato in brown

  428. Emre says:

    Love the day of week window.

  429. Ben says:

    At first glance of the thumbnail, I wasn’t digging it — the bezel felt a little bold for my taste, but upon further inspection in the review, I’ve definitely changed my mind. Very cool watch, and great work by W&W per usual.

  430. Joe C says:

    That’s a sharp looking watch, someone will be very happy to add it to their collection, I’m sure.

  431. Evan P says:

    A cool watch offered by by some cool guys. Thanks for another chance to own a great looking watch!

  432. Andrew says:

    What a beautiful watch! Thanks so much for the killer review and the great giveaway.

  433. James says:

    Have never owned an Orient, however this looks nice!

  434. Allan says:

    This is one beautiful looking watch! Thanks for the generous giveaway!

  435. W says:

    Nice looking watch

  436. This is a very nice watch from Orient. Keep up the good work reviewing these great pieces!

  437. Antonio says:

    It feels incredibly hard to make a watch original and yet with solid looks, and it seems that orient managed to make it.

  438. Andrew says:

    Awesome, what’s not to like?

  439. Trent G. says:

    Another great watch, thanks for sharing!

  440. Nick says:

    Beautiful watch! Orient is a great brand

  441. Rheza says:

    I really like the look of this watch.

  442. Mightor says:

    Love this! This watch can replace my old one ๐Ÿ™‚

  443. Mitch says:

    I appreciate Orient watches for their great bang for the buck appeal. I have two already but would be more than happy to make room in my watch collection for a third ๐Ÿ™‚

  444. Richard says:

    Would love to win this wonderful Orient ! A third watch would be great for my collection !

  445. Hannibal says:

    This is a watch I’d buy if I’m not fortunate enough to be selected.

    Thanks for another excellent giveaway W&W.

  446. Jon says:

    Sharp looking watch! Here’s to whoever gets this beaut!

  447. Tom says:

    Looks like another great watch from Orient. Thanks for the giveaway!

  448. Drew H. says:

    I really like this watch, would be nice to add to the collection.

  449. Harold G. says:

    I really like this Orient watch and recently found the Orient Union which I love. Also, I love your site. Worn&Wound.com has become my go to watch site. You guys are awesome.

  450. Torben says:

    Great site, great watch. Love the day function!

  451. Stephen says:

    Looks like a beautiful watch!

  452. One day I will own an orient

  453. Jordan says:

    I like the layout, very readable.

  454. Dan says:

    The bezel is similar to the new Maratac GPT1. Thanks for the giveaway!

  455. Gary says:

    Thanks for the giveaway. I really like the looks of this watch.

  456. Great watch! Love Orients. Would love to win one.

  457. AJ says:

    I really like the bezel and the way it looks with the nylon strap.

  458. Jeff says:

    Would look great on my wrist!

  459. Don says:

    An unpredictable schedule often leaves me wondering what day of the week it even is. Would be great to glance down and know immediately.

  460. Danny R. says:

    Thanks W&W for introducing me to all these watches the average person can afford! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  461. Sharaf V. says:

    Another great review of an affordable quality watch from Orient. Would like to own one so will try my luck at winning one here. Thanks for another great giveaway.

  462. David H. says:

    I love field and tactical / military style watches. This is a very nice piece.

  463. Hugo says:

    I love the dial, and knurling around the bezel, but the day window.. not so much. This watch is probably one that you have to see in person to appreciate.

  464. James says:

    One more try!

  465. Jan says:

    Looks like a nice piece! A more adult version of the mako, with its own identity, instead of relying heavily on the old sub style. Nice!

  466. Looks like a great watch! Would be fun to try it out!

  467. Eric says:

    What a beautiful watch – love the simple style

  468. John says:

    The Sparta surely seems like a nice watch. With the products that Orient puts out, it’d be a sure bet in my book. Also, loving the colors used on the face. Much like the last picture in the review, I’d probably end up opting for a NATO strap.

  469. Ben says:

    This watch just made my day. It looks great and the colours are perfectly chosen. Being someone who has spent a bit of time lifting heavy bits of iron and putting them down again, the knurled outside edge does it for me. This could be the watch I have been looking for!


  470. Tom says:

    I want to win!

  471. Rick says:

    WELL…. This is a long shot…

  472. Sean says:

    Throwing my hat in the ring just in case.

  473. Michael P says:

    Mmmm, thats nice.

  474. Brian G says:

    Beautiful timepiece!

  475. Asa says:

    I like the look of this watch, I have been wanting to check out orient brand for a while now. Would be pretty sweet if I won!

  476. Pauls says:

    I really need one!

  477. Pauls says:

    Fo’ real !

  478. Evita says:

    It could be a perfect present!

  479. Kirk says:

    Great looking watch, would be great to add a bracelet to my collect.

  480. Duran says:

    Nice watch! I like the oversized day, and date at 6!

  486. uli says:

    Yessss.. love my Somes too ๐Ÿ˜‰

  487. Damn that is a good looking watch! Come to think about it, I don’t own a black dial watch right now… ๐Ÿ™‚

  488. Jon R says:

    Your Basel coverage was excellent! Anyone reading this should subscribe to W&Ws Instagram NOW!

  489. Jonathan says:

    I love this Orient. It is such a unique combination of styles, but yet it remains somehow original.

  490. Neil says:

    A very beautiful watch and excellent value for the money.

  491. Andrew says:

    love the day indicator and matte dial!

  492. Great Looking watch. Would love to have one…

  493. Orient adds ANOTHER cool watch to their collection. I like!

  494. peter says:


  495. I am impressed with the Orient watches I see at my local dealers shop. I have recommended a model to a friend who was looking for a new watch. Better quality at a better price point than most of the competition.

  496. Robert says:

    That is a sweet piece, you guys always seem to find the best!

  497. matt k. says:

    love this site and the watch
