Review 2: ORSA Quartz Chronograph Miyota OS60

The Summary

A great no nonsense watch at a very good price. The Miyota ran +2 second during my first two weeks of ownership performing well within its specifications of -30/+30 seconds a month.
To me the size of the watch is just right. I do not want to carry a huge junk of metal if I want to walk or run at the beach or play sports. I will wear it for outdoor activities in a hot climate. Thus the package with the NATO-style strap is perfect for me.

After a comparison test against the black PVD MOD-style Quartz, the C1 Super Luminova on the hands and indices of the Quartz Chronograph proved to have a longer lasting glow in the dark. My fault that I first commented about the lesser lume of the Chronograph while I did not have the chance to test the watches side by side.

I would easily rate the watch at 9 out of 10 points considering its very favorable selling price. It is really good value for money!

Best regards
