This month, aBlogtoWatch is giving away an Orion Field Standard Automatic watch to one lucky reader. Orion is a small American brand run by Nick Harris, also known by the previous handle of Watches by Nick. Nick is a current watchmaking student who got his start by modifying Seiko watches, which led to building his own. At 38mm wide, 49mm lug to lug, and with 100m of water resistance, the Field Standard's case is the brand's signature with different models changing up things like the bezel and dial. The Orion Field Standard offers a field watch-style dial with an inner 24-hour scale and cathedral hands.
At 12.3mm thick, with a thick domed sapphire crystal and large screw-down crown, the Orion Field Standard will wear a bit beefier than many 38mm watches. The hands and numerals (including the 24-hour scale) are lumed with C3 Super-LumiNova, and the faceted applied indices give the dial a touch of depth. The caseback is solid, and inside is the Seiko NH35 automatic movement which offers the time and date, with hacking and hand-winding features. The Orion Field Standard Automatic watch comes on an integrated black croc-patterned leather strap (20mm lug-width), and has a retail price of $450. Enter below for your chance to win one of your own.
