Orient 2ER0F000B Sports Diver

Bought this one on a New Zealand auction site. Only reference I can find for it is a picture on the Orient Russia website. Lume is not good, but I like the case style. I also really like the waffle design on the dial which in some lighting disappears and then the dial looks jet black. Movement in this one is the 48743.

Uses the mercedes style hands, which I didn't like so much, so I put on some Omega style hands instead.
