Having some issues with my watch. I only wear it a day or two every few weeks. maybe 3 to 7 days a month. Every time I put it on its off by multiple hours. Picked it up one day and it wasn't ticking, which was weird since its pretty new (only had it maybe 3 or 4 months). Put it on the next day and it was working again? Any advice??

Its a mechanical watch, which means it does not have a battery. Moving the watch around charges a spring, which will power the movement of the watch. If you do not wear it, after a while the spring will be decharged and the watch will stop moving.

ahhh okay that explains it. Thanks!
So, I got my FER2700CW0 a few weeks ago and I thought I'd share my impressions with the community. Kinda surprised that it's quite a handsome watch. Looks much better than the pics even suggest. The applied numerals really take it up a notch as well as the inner tuxedo striping on the dial. Wish it had hand winding and hacking but not a deal breaker by any stretch. It wears like a thinner watch too so perfect for when my diver(s) wouldn't be right in a formal situation. The bracelet is folded links so it was a pain to size, but the style complements the watch quite nicely even if it feels a bit on the cheap side. I've gotten quite a few compliments on it, even over Skype. Running about +8 sec/day and has been stable and consistent throughout which is really quite fantastic. The rotor is a bit on the noisy side but quite tolerable. Overall a very satisfying purchase. Highly recommended if you temper your expectations accordingly. Would buy again without question.
Hacking seconds?
I think you are showing the wrong image for the FER2700DW0 (white dial with arabic numerals)... should have all 12 numerals on the dial. The image of the FER2700CW0 (silver dial) is repeated twice. Fairly important mistake for someone thinking about ordering the FER2700DW0 as shown and only expecting the 3-6-9-12 numerals.
Not a big fan on the hollowed-out with blade inserts links. The rough finishing means too-hard to adjust (pop/ remove and insert back) them. I pass.
No warranty for this drop--was there a warranty for previous drops?
a fourth watch delivered to me in January? okay, sure. LOL. I love my V2 Bambino. tough to beat the value of an Orient. the reference FER27001B0 is going to look great on a grey suede nato.
It would be really neat if the Sentinel came back for this Thanksgiving sale and whatnot.
Hi all, we were able to add more units for all three options.
@JWar20
Really wanted to jump in this. But the black is sold out. Maybe next time

International shipping ?
LuckAss
MD should have separate website for their international customers. It is pointless for us to see a drop that does not ship internationally, it feels like to be given a false hope.
LuckAss
It ships to many countries, no problem with NZ for example, if yours isn't there - just use a mail forwarding service and US shipping. I don't know why people keep asking, MD can't ship to places because of vendors restriction; having to point out that you can use a freight forwarding service is going to get MD in trouble. So, lets just all use our heads m'kay...
The white face with Arabic numbering is so distracting. The font just doesn't look right.
Does the blaçk dial have a brown strap, or is it black?
VanCity
Looking at the model on www.orientwatchusa.com, it says black leather band, which is contrary to the description here
Any chance of having more of the white faces added?
Very nice watch and deal - if only Long Island Watch didn't already announce that they are running a black friday sale on the starfish for 10 less I would be all over this.

What colour are watch bands? Did I miss that in the description?
Alleyb
It's in the first line of the description. "With a polished stainless steel case, deep brown leather strap, and slim rectangular indices..."
Mine arrived today! Now I just need to get home and open it.
I keep coming back here for some sort of update. Like the Domino's Pizza Tracker. "Bill has placed your watch in the oven." "Your watch is awaiting final quality control." "Your watch is on its way! Don't forget to tip your delivery person!"
Do they offer a black dial?
DarylD
Not in this drop, but you can find the black dial version on Long Island Watch.
DarylD
Black dial available this time..
Are there import fees for Canadian citizens?
Fartlord
most likely
Fartlord
Even if the reply is late, I'm going to comment hoping that it might be helpful for someone else.
When Massdrop is shipping to Canada the packaged is handled by Canada Post after crossing the border. Canada Post is billing an amount that is what would have been taxes if you bought it in a local store. They do not charge additional broker fees.
is this worth it?

The movement was designed in Japan and at one point probably made in Japan as well, however, I doubt these watches are manufactured in Japan especially because it is so cheap. It's most likely assembled elsewhere in Asia like Malaysia or China. It's definitely not a copy, though. Orient is one of the few manufacturers that build everything in house (don't use a third party movement), but for these cheaper models, they're most likely assembled outside of Japan. Hope that helps.

Thanks - that makes perfect sense. I didn't know that they did their own movements at all.
Guys, how can I calculate the shipping costs for Hungary?
Orestis
No need, they do not ship outside of Us & Canada, as usual for Orient on this site.
Water resistant. :o
no manual winding? so will i have to shake it or something?
CHICKENGOD
Or just wear it and go about your day. If you don't walk around much, you might have to gently shake it for a minute or so.
Benson23
ah ok thanks
Is there a reason none of the Orient watches will ship to Australia?
slaveoflord
Think it's US and Canada only... doesn't ship to the UK either :(
slaveoflord
They do. I bought an Orient Trooper which was defective and had to be returned. I then bought an Orient Ranger which is fine.
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.

It only says that the white dial with black indexes is sold out but I can't select any other option either!
Is there any warranty on the watches from Orient?
would join now if they had different colors
Pretty good deal, although there is a newer version (Symphony II) with a sapphire crystal. Newer model can be found for around $100, so...

I'm only seeing it for 185$, more than double this watches price.

It was 15 weeks ago but this drop is better than the last one.
