I really like the bold colour and think it would look good on the wrist. Very Happy

I'm presuming it wouldn't be easy to "mod" the watch with a different dial because of the sub dial. Out of interest is the sub dial a power reserve indicator?

it is a power reserve, but auto as well

the is Orient's equivalent of Seiko's Marine Master

I like it and that's from a Seiko addict so it must be good.
I like a few bright coloured dials in the box it gives a good variety and they say variety is the spice of life.

How many times have you kicked yourself for not buying the black dialed one you saw a few month ago Shocked

I say go for it buy the red one If you do not bond with it you most certainly will not make a loss if you sell it on .

oooops, hadn't realised the price point. Embarassed

I think John's advice to get the red one is sound rather than being disappointed if you miss the chance to buy it.

I came across this one which also looks good but still isn't the dial colour you were looking for.

I see what you mean on both points. Its a bit of a quandary whether to seize the opportunity of the red one or be patient (which is never easy) for one with the dial colour you would like.
Possibly John's suggestion that it would hold its value for selling on would minimise any worries specially if you could buy it at a good price. Very Happy

I love red dials personally, I'm a complete sucker for watches with detail. I think you will love it and not look back. It will be a whole new world of watches with red dials.

i think it will fit in nicely with my other divers

That's the one I put a link to earlier in this thread if you wanted to see any more details about it. It's a pity it's not being sold by a UK seller.

not my taste but very nice in white
