Here’s the lowdown on the Orient Defender:

The modern field watch has served as a bridge between technical pieces and everyday sport timepieces. The Defender is a stark example, evidenced by its functionality, versatility, and utilitarian styling.
The Defender blurs the lines for a sports watch; from a utility standpoint, the day, date and 24-hour dial couldn’t be more practical. The chapter ring marks time at 1/5th of a second in addition to the minute/second scale in 5 unit denominations. Stylistically, the high contrast in the dial really brings out this military-inspired motif. The hour markers are slightly lifted off the dial, which adds to the “pop” and legibility altogether. The subdials feature a concentric design in order to dull the contrast within them, and they serve to help the eyes concentrate on the hour markers instead. These subtle nuances are a testament to its considered design.

Like all Orient watches, The Defender offers an unmatched amount of value for its price. With an in-house movement, Orient timepieces are in a league of their own when it comes to quality of timepiece in its class.

Right now, you can get the Orient Defender on Amazon for just $156.
