The Orient Sentinel
This $95 Mechanical Watch Is Underrated and Perfect For All Occasions
The Bambino gets all the attention when it comes to Orient’s handsome, accessibly-priced automatics, but the Sentinel is a bit of a sleeper in the lineup – this is a watch that has less of an emphasis on retro style and attempts to blur the line between sporty and dressy, and the result is something you can wear on all occasions. Coming in at 40.5mm in diameter and 11.5mm thick, it’s relatively compact for such an accessibly-priced automatic, and with a 50-meter water-resistance rating it won’t mind getting a little wet, either.
Right now, Massdrop is offering the watch for $95, both in black and blue dial colors. That’s a massive drop from the watch’s $315 MSRP, though, more realistically, the watch consistently sells elsewhere online for around $130. Still, that makes it a temptingly cheap buy.
A note on Massdrop:
Massdrop is not like other online retailers. It’s a members-only site that requires signing up (all it takes is an email address). If you’re not a member, you can sign up here. When you place an order from Massdrop at a discounted price, you’re not buying from them directly. The site works by taking orders from consumers, then bulk ordering product at a discount directly from brands and other wholesalers. For more information on how Massdrop works, click here.
