Quietly Watching VFM* Rating: 8.5/10
The Orient Raven 2, Reference FAA02003B9, is a stainless steel Orient caliber F6922 Automatic powered Diver watch. Selling between $150-180 at the time of writing, the Raven 2 is exceptional value for the price of around $158.00 USD I was able to buy it at.
The Orient Ray Raven II has a case diameter of 41.5 millimeters, putting it right in the middle size wise and wears well with a lug to lug of 47 millimeters. Shipped with a PVD Black Stainless Steel Bracelet, this watch has a lug width of 22 millimeters. Swapping bands for a new leather strap, nato, rubber or silicon band or even a new bracelet offers you another look for a couple extra bucks.
This Orient caliber F6922 Automatic powered watch weighs in at 149 grams as shipped, with a case thickness of 13 millimeters. As this is a dive watch, it may be on the thicker side, even the quartz or solar powered divers. This is expected and needed to provide proper water resistance.
The case is stainless steel with a 120-click uni-directional aluminum bezel and sports a Mineral crystal with a water resistance rating of 200 meters .
The Orient Raven 2 Analog display with Black dial, Black PVD case and bracelet and a Day / Date complication give this watch a 8.5 out of 10 rating in my value for money scale. (*VFM)
