Review 2: ORSA Quartz Chronograph Miyota OS60
Of course the Nato style strap will put the
watch immediately into a Military style category. I will talk about the strap
But it is not the strap that catches one's attention when looking at the watch: it is the dial with those numerals that remind of players' numbers on sport jerseys or numbers used on army equipment. Second one will notice the ladder indices which probably make the watch look a bit smaller the it really is.
The diameter is a classic 36.5 mm excluding crown and push buttons and the visible part of the dial is 29 mm. Bigger then some dials of 40 mm watches in my collection.
It is really the layout of the dial that is in my opinion captivating. The print quality of the dial is very good. I found a tiny little hair in the "0" of the the "10" marker, besides that, perfect printing. A lot better then many of my Seikos. I am not trying to put Seiko down here, but dials seem never really Seiko's primary quality concern. Actually there is a tiny printing mistake on the dial. The second sub dial's 15 second tick mark is missing. It is just a coincidence that the missing tick is hidden by the minute hand here.
The white baton hands add to the watch's utilitarian looks. It is not really a friendly watch face looking at you. But it is a very clean dial layout and for my personal taste I am very happy that the ticks of the sub dials have been reduced to a minimum. This definitely adds to the clarity of this layout and enhances readability.
