Great help on the pre-sales by long isalnd. I got this along with the orient ray 2 and 3 other nato straps.
The ranger is a nice watch and offer good value at this price range. Especially the sapphire glass is an icing on the cake. Strap is good as well.
Couple of drawbacks though in my view is that there is no hand winding or hacking and the day function cannot be adjusted independently.
The non hacking is not really an issue but the lack of handwinding is bit of a bummer for me. Also day can be set only by literally turning the hands by 24 hours for each day. This can get a really annoying as sometime its need 6 days of winding to set the day right.
I say all this in comparison with the ray 2 i have which was 10$ more than this. While the ray 2 does not have the sapphire glass and transparent caseback, it is a better movement with hand wind and hacking.
