Bernhardt watch company is a small operation that forgoes advertising to ensure their customers get the most watch possible for their money.

The Ray is the predecessor to Orient’s popular Mako line of watches. With the Ray Orient has added some new features and ironed out some of the kinks that plagued the Mako line, making it one of their best sellers. The Ray does a great job of fitting the mold of a capable tool watch while still keeping a low enough profile to work as a dressed up dive watch.
The watch world is flooded with dive watches of all imaginable sizes, shapes, colors and styles. Unfortunately some of these are “fashion” watches masquerading as dive watches.
