How about you show a different dial color for the Orient??
You really want to make voting even tougher than it already is! :D
That's a great idea; I hope this does not change anyone's mind! :scared:

I voted for the Seiko, based on looks alone.

Now you see, John's opinion on stickies is absolutely correct!
I leave these polls as stickies, and they have become ignored.
Un-stick them and keep bumping them to the top, now
everyone has something to say! :lol: :laugh:

I certainly like some of the Orient Star models and own one, but the Seiko Flightmaster speaks to me much louder if having to make a choice between these two.

The 6R20 is not a chronograph movement. I am pretty sure both of these watches are using the same movement, but I'll take the Seiko over the Orient in a heartbeat! :thumbup1:

I voted for the Orient, I'm sure the Seiko is a champion product but it's too "busy" and if I were using it as a chrono I wouldn't be able to pay attention to the numbers, A.D.D. I suppose :w00t:
