From the manufacturer
About Orient Watch:
- Has manufactured mechanical watches for over 65 years.
- All movements (the timing device) are made in Japan.
- Producing our own movements ensures the highest quality and speaks to Orient’s true passion, watchmaking.
The Defender is the refined field watch that's been missing from your collection. From a utility standpoint, the day, date and 24-hour dial couldn’t be more useful, and at the least, practical for this kind of watch. Stylistically, the high contrast in the dial really brings out this military-inspired motif. At 42mm wide and 12mm thick, the Defender won’t be intrusive tomost. The case is rated to 100m of water resistance, which is reinforced by a screwed-down crown. It’s important to note that the collection features two distinct case finishes. The pebbled-leather strap colorways sport a smooth, matte case finish. The stainless steel bracelet models have a brushed stainless steel finish.
- Automatic, self-winding movement
- Day and date display
- 24-hour display
- Screwed-down crown

My main complaints:
1) The face and case finish is only available with a leather strap. I'd much prefer a NATO nylon or a metal band.
2) The power reserve really doesn't seem to last more than a day or so, so I often have to set it again if I don't wear a watch on the weekend or wear a different watch.
3) There's no hand-winding, exacerbating point 2. No hacking either
4) No quick way to change the day-of-week complication, so if I don't wear this for a few days, I have to manually advance the movement through several 24 hour cycles.
The Orient Defender is a cool and unique watch that stands out amongst a sea of affordable field watches. It feels like a higher quality watch that is absolutely punching above its price point. Yeah, the movement doesn't hack but what do you expect when hovering around the hundred dollar mark?
The day, date, and 24-hour complications balance out the face of the watch and were very simple to set without even looking at the manual. The entire fit and finish of the watch is quality and I'm very satisfied in that regard. The shiny Orient logo and polished crown are nice touches. Also, the leather strap it comes with is fantastic.
I chose the gray color and I'm quite happy I did. There are enough black and blue watch dials out there and this one stands out a bit more. It also looks great with NATO Straps and the neutral monochrome color works well with a variety of colors.
This is a great watch that I think people new to watches and even the enthusiast can appreciate. I could see this being a great first automatic for a newer watch collector. It's working very well for my needs and I can't recommend it enough to anyone who is on the fence about buying it.
Back to the watch itself, the gray dial contrasts well with the white markers and minute/hour hands. It's very easy to see the time quickly. The day/date markers and 24-hour indicator are a bit smaller and harder to read from a distance, but anyone with near 20/20 vision shouldn't have a problem. There is also great depth within the dial. The curved outer ring of the dial is angled at roughly 45 degrees and along with the applied hour markers help to give the dial a bit of pop. The mineral glass also protrudes out of the bezel slightly with a similar 45 degree angle around the rim of the crystal. Very sharp looking IMO and just another example of great attention to detail and adding a bit extra to the design of the watch.
The 42mm case size is perfect in my opinion and the brushed steel looks good and gives the watch a nice hefty feel. The steel adds enough weight to make the watch feel solid but not overly heavy. I'm currently wearing the watch with the included black strap, which is surprisingly flexible and comfortable right out of the box, but maybe a tad thin. I'm not sure if the strap will last more than 2-3 years of constant use but I give Orient credit for providing a comfortable leather strap overall. I ordered olive green and khaki NATO straps to use with this watch instead but they have not arrived yet.
I've only had the watch for a few days but it is keeping excellent time. And I do mean excellent. It's off less than 10 seconds in those three days, so I have to be either very lucky to find a finely tuned watch or whichever way I've been setting it overnight (face up) is helping to make up for any loss during the day when I'm wearing it (edit: after more time with the watch, I've verified that it loses either 3 or 4 seconds most days). So far I'd rank the style, detail, and accuracy above my Seiko 5's which is to be expected given its price point. Had I known about this model earlier, I probably would not have purchased those military style Seiko's, which isn't a knock on the Seiko's themselves which are a great value. So far my only complaint with this watch is the weak lume. The applied hour markers are large and filled with sufficient lume, but the quality is lacking. It takes a bright light to charge the lume sufficiently and after the light goes out, the lume loses its glow fairly quickly. That's too bad because after charging the lume with a flashlight, the style and initial bright pop of the lume look excellent.
