My latest and only Orient. Decided to add this Orient to my dress watches collection, since I missing an Orient. (Excuses….)
But this is a very value for money dress watch, while I got it pre-owned, the first owner bought it at only $193 from a shop in Bras Basah.
Very vintage looking design.

Back in April, I was on the fence when a MO was organised for the Halios Puck. I registered interest but withdrew when the funds went to another vintage Caribbean.
When I discovered there’s a DLC version, boy was I tempted, cautious at the same time as I don’t have very good experiences with coated watch cases. After going through a few posts on WUS, I decided to take the plunge and went ahead and contacted the friendly MO organiser if there’s room for me.
Fast forward to October, the watch is in my hands, it’s really a long wait for me.
It is a really solid piece. I simply love the black tone, it’s not a solid polished PVD black that I feared most, it’s brushed and kinda dark gun-metal colour.

Now this is an interesting piece, it was very popular for a while and everybody is hunting high and low for it.
I was on the fence, I like dress watches but I didn’t have that feeling for it.. so days goes by, 1 came up for sale, I was like ok, let’s grab it first and decide later.
So viola, the Blue Spark
I can tell why it’s so popular, it has a very classic, clean feel and somehow I feel like I’m wearing a vintage Grand or King Seiko.

When I saw a couple of mesh bracelets on sale in the Seiko Club Singapore forum, I grabbed them immediately without giving much consideration on which watch to match. (Sorry guys if you are eyeing on it, I have a weak spot for mesh.)
Now they are here, damn… I can’t find a suitable 20mm lug watch to match, so anyway, another reason is I want to do something for so long yet I couldn’t find the right bracelet for it.
I have bought a Sinn buckle for quite a while without really fully utilising it, now finally with spare time to boot, this combo came out.
Sinn Mesh Bracelet. The mesh is a straight 22mm, fit the buckle perfectly.
I have to find a watch with a shorter lug to lug distance as I have adjusted the mesh to the shortest possible length. The Caribbean fit the bill !
