Review 2:

Orsa Quartz Chronograph Miyota Cal. OS60

Dear All

This time I knew about the surprise when traveling to Hong Kong. The Orsa Quartz Chronograph was waiting for me there. Of course Mr. Murphy spiced up the first encounter adding some technical problems to the plane that left Dubai late before stopping over at Bangkok. I was counting down the hours to finally get a first impression of this Orsa Quartz Chronograph ... and then finally, I was able to play with it!

After having worn it during a week, I trust I can write a first review. I did not open the case yet, as I certainly want to do this with my Bergeon 5700Z which will not leave any marks on the high gloss case back. It would be a pity to ruin that really shiny back with a handheld opener. I was wearing and examining the watch for one week at the time of writing this first mini review.

Please click on the first thumbnail in the table below to start the review or look at single pages by clicking on any of the thumbnails.

Last but not least I would like to mention that I received the watch from Orsa Watch Co. for this review. This will however not influence me in writing this review. I have seen quite a few reviews that are pure advertising. If one does this, why not mark it as such.

Best regards

PS. I would like to give photo credits to Wong F.Y. She took some of the pictures of the watch before I arrived and I think they are so well taken, that I will be gladly using them in this review.
