If you’re a regular GP reader, you’re more than likely aware that Orient is one of our favorite makers of affordable watches — the Japanese brand regularly delivers automatic steel sports watches in various colors and configurations at unbeatable prices.
Right now, you can grab the Ray II in three dial variants beginning at just $116 on Amazon, down from Orient’s MSRP of $325. The Ray II features a 41.5mm stainless steel case with matching bracelet, a unidirectional dive bezel, an automatic Japanese movement with 40 hours of power reserve and a day-date display. At this price and with this feature set, what’s essentially the perfect summer watch could easily become your favorite everyday watch.
