Not long ago I put into competition some of my watches and the watch truest to the time of the Official USA Clock was the Ecozilla. I have set the Ecozilla to the second again and am timing it vs Orient. I have to say that this Orient is a very exact machine.

I also have an Orient "ER" movement in a different model and it is probably the most accurate mechanical I've owned fresh out of the box with no regulation. I remember it kept match with a quartz for as long as I bothered to measure.
ER was used in the old model Orient Stars for what that's worth.
Some people feel the rain while others just get wet.

Fot those that did not know, this watch was discontinued a couple of years ago. I gave myself one for my birthday. The black was by then a gonner so I settled for the blue one... it is avery nice watch. It does not get much wrist time but has been the cause of a lot of glances, even at jewelry stores and for those that do not know, they may think that it is a Rolex Submariner.

Well, I will conclude the test that started a few days ago. As of this moment which is close to my 10:00 am time, there is one second or less variation between the Orient and the Ecozilla. I have worn the Orient about 8 hours a day. Take this Omega! Oh, by the way the Orient cost me about $130.00 USD brand new...
