It looks good. I remember seeing them at $320 recently but I guess they sold in a flash so now they go for more.

Not bad looking. People will complain about the PR meter, but complications are Orient's "thing". It is sort of a cheaper version of their Pro Saturation Diver.

I've been considering this lately. Seems like an awful lot of watch for the money. Creation has the black and blue models for $317. They have the two tone on Ebay for about $20 more. On the other hand, Long Island Watch now has them for $389 and $409, but is it worth an additional $70 to get an AD backed warranty?

i've been really eyeing the blue one. I started out considering one of the blue Mako II's but I think it would be worth saving up another $200 and springing for the triton.

Got a Triton in classic black a few days ago. So far, I'm impressed with the quality for value. I think you'd have trouble finding anything comparable in a micro-brand for less than $700. Though it has the same movement as the Saturation Diver, the size is a lot more manageable. Like the OSD 300, the bezel play is superb and the lume is very nice. Even the power reserve hand is lumed. I'm in no hurry to size the bracelet since I have other options handy.

They're Flickr photos, Chris. I see 'em clear as anything.

Terry, I think I read somewhere that the L2L is 51mm. For reference, my wrist is 7.75".

Another Tapatalk issue, I guess. They show up fine on the browser. It looks great on the Isofrane.

Chuck are you still loving this one? Did you end up getting it from creation or long island?

I opted to spend a little more and get it from a reputable stateside AD rather than grey market dealer in Singapore. The price was still pretty reasonable. It's a lot of watch for the money, so yeah, I'm happy with it.

Also wanted to mention that if you bought from orientwatchusa keep an eye on your credit card because mine was immediately hit with fraudulent charges after I made a purchase with them and a few other people over on WUS had it happen to them as well
