This watch looked great online, but even better in person. I while I wanted to pair the Cosmos with a leather band, I chose this model because I preferred the hour markers to numbers, and wanted a brown band instead of black ( as it comes with the other Cosmos model). The blue hands are the perfect color...they appear almost navy until the light catches them, which keeps them from looking gaudy and cheap, but adds visual interest.
My boss has complimented me on the watch on three different occasions, and nearly twisted my hand off trying to get a good look at it. Keeps perfect time as well.
I will certainly be purchasing another Orient from Long Island Watch (excellent customer service and quick shipping).
