The Orient Sun & Moon Version 3 with automatic movement is gorgeous and really affordable given all of its features. The Orient brand itself is no stranger to quality but this one is a bit more surprising. With all the features above, especially the sapphire crystal, you would expect this watch to go well over $500 but its averages around just below $200. The sun and moon phase is functional and not just for looks, as well. Let's take a dive into this water resistant and affordable automatic watch for men.



  • Multiple colors to choose from online if you’re not into blue.
  • Beautiful vintage-inspired design.
  • High-quality sapphire crystal that you would not usually get in this price range.
  • Functional sun and moon phase.
  • Date view as well.
  • Overwhelming positive reviews from over 240 people.
  • Hacking movement for maintaining timekeeping accuracy. This is also rare for the price.


  • A little bulky. If you have small wrists and don’t like large watch faces, this watch may not be for you.
  • Water resistant up to 165ft. but you can’t dive with it.
  • Some customers are reporting that the time accuracy is not as good as it should be but most are really happy with the purchase.


The Orient Sun and Moon Phase Version 3 Automatic is probably the best deal I have come across. Affordable quality doesn’t even come close to describing this watch in my opinion. With the sapphire crystal, hacking movement and sun/moon phase together, you could easily spend over $500. However, the Version 3 comes in at under $200 and thats a game changer price. Orient watches have always been known for their quality and affordability but I truly believe they have outdone themselves on this one. I highly recommend this automatic watch for a first time buyer or to add to your collection.
