Well, to be fair, they”ve been around for awhile now, but this is the first time we”ve taken a look at their offerings on this page. Without further ado – Orca!
Suffice to say, Orca is a new brand, based out of Germany, offering up Swiss-made timepieces. At the moment, they have two different styles on offer (a military dial and diver dial), along with two different movements (quartz or mechanical), and blue or orange lume available (depending on the dial chosen).
In short, given the options, there are eight (I believe) different models to chose from when you pre-order your watch – that”s right, pre-order. Once you”ve made your selection, your watch is built and will be to you in about four weeks.
For me, I”m gravitating towards the military dial along with the orange lume. I don”t have a solid reason for preferring the dial, it”s just something that is. As to the lume, while blue is my favorite color, I”m intrigued by the orange – it”s really offering up something different that I”ve not seen outside of tritium.
Regardless of the selections you make, these are the specs for what you end up with:
- 44mm titanium case; 12.3mm thick
- Movement: Ronda quartz or ETA 2824-2 automatic
- Sapphire crystal
- 120-click unidirectional bezel
- 22mm rubber strap
All in all, very respectable stats for well-designed watch – one made of titanium, to boot, which will keep things nice and light. Pricing, obviously, depends a bit on your choices:
- Titanium Quartz: $880
- Black Titanium Quartz: $915
- Titanium Automatic: $1195
- Black Titanium Automatic: $1225
Pricing may be slightly different when you go to order, as I”ve taken out the 19% VAT, and applied exchange rates at the time of writing. If you”re interested, you can .
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
