Jeff - How accurate are your automatic watches? One reviewer of the Orient SEL03001B says his is slow 15 seconds per day (that would be annoying); another guy says his is fast 20 seconds per week (not too bad). Quartz watches are usually within 30 seconds per month.

I find that if I wear them a lot, they run 3 or 4 minutes fast after a couple of months. No biggie to me.

Orient has been on my radar - they seem like slightly more upscale Seikos.

For some reason----maybe just the fact that I've been familiar with Seiko since childhood----I "trust" Seiko more than Orient.

Orient is wholly owned by Seiko, and they often use Seiko movements in better value models. For example, if you're lusting after a sweet Seiko mechanical chronograph Orient provide a cheaper alternative. All the quartz watches i've ever used were rated at +/- 15 seconds per month. Even low end Seikos are sometimes reported as having good accuracy, around +/- 3 to 5 seconds per day - far better than the manufacturer states.
