At first glance, I like the look of the Orient better. I've never seen either one in person though.

Here's another expensive Seiko.

A few months ago on my blog Phil compared the two to each other:

The OSD is quite a bit bigger:

Jonny: It's a strong endorsement that considering the volume of watches you've purchased and sold (catch and release as Jeff likes to say) you maintained 3 of 4 Orients. That speaks well of Orient long term satisfaction/quality.

True, Angelo. But part of it is that the three Orients that I have kept all had retail prices of over $500 (even if I paid less for the two Revolvers as they were second-hand), while the one I sold cost ~$200 new. So it might be more a matter of quality and my developing (escalating?) tastes.

I could see getting another Orient in the future, but it would be ~$700 Star Seeker, so it would also fit into the more expensive category.
