Orient ER27007W Review: Leather Band Classic Automatic Watch

The ER27007W is among the classy watches by Orient. It falls in a similar class to the Bambino timepiece and targets users who love precision, looking fashionable and classy appeal.

In this Orient ER27007W review, we will find out more about the timepiece.

Classic Traditional Looking Dial

You won’t fail to notice the traditional looking dial which contributes to it’s a classic appeal. The round dial features a silver-tone which blends nicely with the silver-tone hands.

The index silver markers hour markers stand out against the whitish silver background. The Orient Logo and the word Automatic (written in Italics) are placed beneath the 12 o’clock marker whereas the Water Resist inscription (also in italics) is just above the 6 o’clock position.

It has simple hour, minute, and second hands which move swiftly and emit no noise. At the 3 o’clock point, you find a simple date window to complete the simple traditions look.

Unfortunately, the hands have to lume and viewing in a dark location may be a challenge.

Accurate 48743 Automatic Movement

The watch boasts the renowned Orient Caliber 48743 automatic movement and you’ll find the engraving on the case back. It is fully analog and features 21 jewels and beats 6 times per second or 21,600 vibrations per hour.

The unit is fairly accurate considering it has a margin of error of +/- 15 seconds in a day.

We like how silent the piece is and the self-winding which saves you the trouble of regularly winding it. It’s also non-hacking, resistant to magnetism and moves with good precision.

And with a power reserve of about 40 hours, it will still continue to run even when not worn for a day.

Slim Shiny Stainless Steel Case

The watch’s case can be said to be of the average diameter. It is about 41mm and is 12mm thick. The outer edge is also slim and the lugs are small and short.

These features give it a lightweight appeal, which makes it more wearable. It doesn’t feel too bulky or very heavy and the wearability is enhanced by the smooth highly polished finish.

The simple design and goes well with the flat crystal and should look okay for casual and formal events. Also, the lugs aren’t as bulky as those spotted by most sports watches.

The silver case matches the crocodile textured leather straps which are held together by a pin buckle.

Flat Mineral Crystal

The company went for the mineral crystal which enjoys positive reviews in regards to strength, tolerance to scratches, and good clarity.

In contrasts to the Bambino watch which features a dome or raised crystal, this timepiece has a flat one.

Viewing the time in daylight or brightly lit surroundings is easier owing to the crystal ability to resist glare. This is despite not having an anti-glare coating.

Some users, however, say that it would have been a little easier if the watch had some Arabic numerals which are more friendly.

Final Verdict

When it comes to looks and elegance, this timepiece scores highly. It also gets the nod for being easy to put on and remove, maintaining its beautiful appeal for a long time, and also being precise.

If you want an expensive looking yet affordable timepiece, then this piece should be worthwhile.
