      I’m really glad that my review had been helpful buddy. Do share what you feel about the watch when you get it =)

  2. Hi. Great review. I’ve bought this watch on the strength of your words! Just wondering could you recommend a similarly priced GMT style watch? Many thanks.

      Hi Barry. I’m glad that you like the watch. Unfortunately all GMT automatic watches are more expensive than a normal automatic watch and I can’t find any that is in the price range of this Ray II. For Orient brand, you might want to look for Orient Polaris line but it’s still more expensive than the Ray II.

      Cheers!

  3. The Ray ii beat the Ray i with only the screw down crown where water can’t sip in if properly tight. On the Ray i, over time, the pusher may leak?? Just my opinion.

    1. My mistake. Both the crown and pusher are screw down so it is at least water tight.

  4. I love watches and have collected them in the past. So, I loved your review of the Mako II. I am not that familiar with these watches, but really like the look of them.
    I read your review of the original Ray I and was suprised the price. It looks like a much more expensive watch.
    The Ray II, I’m guessing, is designed to be a less expensive alternative to more expensive dive watches. I think it’s a good approach. Since I’m not a diver, I wouldn’t hesitate for a minute to buy a Ray II. I especially like the matte black version, Orient Black Ray Raven II. I think that’s awesome looking.
    Even though I have owned lots of watches, I learned some things about watches from the article. I like that there is the assumption that not everyone knows what every term means and that not everyone understands the watch lingo. Thanks for the mini-education.
    I like the thorough and detailed comparison of each watch, highlighting the differences.
    I do like a watch that has a manual wind feature. As you point out, a watch occassionally needs to be wound manually.
    I like that you chose the more technically advanced watch,….that is also better priced.

  5. Hey IsaacSc,
    Thanks a lot for your review about Orient Ray II. I have personally been looking for such quality, with many functions watch like this. I really appreciate the hard work you put into reviewing this watch.

    I also like the date functionality that comes along with this Orient Ray II watch as you mentioned. I think this the great watch I’ve been looking for.

    But I’ve got some question to ask, Apart from amazon is there any where I can purchase this Orient Ray II watch?

      Hi Stephen. Other from Amazon, you can also check out Ebay. But between them, I prefer Amazon since Ebay’s layout gives a lot of pages of the same watch but from different sellers. It makes comparing prices harder in my opinion.

      Apart from these 2, there are also other online watch stores that you can look out such as jomashop.com or longislandwatches.com. These are 2 of the more popular stores currently.

      Cheers!

  6. Time is really important to me so i don’t joke with my watch.

    i really like watches and to be frank i do have brand but i still choose the best. ORIENT RAY, is another powerful watch. i like their design, is very simple and masculine.

    i think i will blue ray ii, very simple and classic.

      Hi Collins. I totally agree with you. The Ray II really looks masculine – I think that’s why it’s such a hot watch for guys =)

      Cheers!

  7. Hey Isaac.
    I have to say you put up an excellent review on quite popular Orient Ray II watch. Believe it or not but Orient was my first watch when I was a teenager 🙂 I was a proud owner of this man’s item.
    These days we have so many different options for nice watches that it is very easy to get overwhelmed.
    Your review is very informative and useful even for women. They definitely need to know how to choose a good watch for their men 🙂
    Cheers,

      Hi Vitaliy. I’m happy that you are satisfied with your Ray II =)

      Thanks for visiting by buddy. Cheers!

  8. I like the Ray Raven II! I like watches that have a sleeker, stealthier look to them & that design and color-way fits my description. I’m also a big fan of the Nato Strap. A nice strap can go a long way! Great Review & also enjoyed the review on the Movado watch you did as well

  11. hey you’ve got what i want, very powerful watches. am really a fan of watch. Although because of mobile phone people do not patronize watch but some of us we still know our brand.

    i like the orient II, the inner blue makes it feel more masculine the time indicator is big enough to see what says the time.

    Thanks for the review.

  14. Hi Isaac.

    I’m glad I could find your website and read your review on Orient Ray II Diver Watch.

    I remember my mom used to have good taste to choose watches and she always told me a good watch is always a good present to give.

    Every Christmas I have in my mind to find a good watch to buy for my husband present.
    After I read your review I find this would be a nice present to give for my husband or for my children.
    I will take a look to more of your post on your website as I’m interested to read more about automatic watches for men.
