Both are made for special people, the left handed. Both are automatic watches. Both are chosen for their uniqueness. The comparison is just incidental with no further connotation.
While one comes from the East, produced by the famed house of ORIENT, Japan, the other is from the West, produced by the equally famed house of PANERAI, Switzerland.
Both are made to suit the right budget. While the Japan made cost slightly over one grand, the other needs just over twenty grand to own a piece.
