Pardon the “watch of summer” hyperbole.  Pretty sure Mother Nature hasn’t handed over her rights to seasonal naming rights just yet, but she can’t be that upset with the Orient Chief Automatic.

The dial is light and sports a symmetrical thatch checkerboard texture.  The rounded off numbers (a font Orient favors) is just a tick down on the formality scale which is right in line with summer.  The light tan band is also right for warmer weather, but that’s easily swapped out for a fabric strap or a dark brown band.  A black band would really dress it up nicely too.  The day window is a terrific anchor, and the Orient logo is one of the best out there.

And it’s an automatic.

Dial shows up as more of a gray on some sites, but it looks to lean more white.  Also available with a black dial.  Code EXECUTIVE50 gets you 50% as well as free regular ground shipping.
