A couple of vintage Orient handcrankers..

There are some nice vintage Orient watches out there. Found these two. Both feature 17 jewel handwind movements.

First up, the Orient Fineness which uses the 20326 movement. As far as I can work out, made around 1967.

Next up is the Orient Jaguar which uses the 20620 movement. Probably made around the same time as the Fineness.
