Hey, here's a sharp looking Orient!

Post by AJC » October 13th 2017, 5:56pm

Crisp, white dial with blue, Breguet-style hands. Black numerals reminiscent of some higher-end/mid-range Seikos. Crudely decorated, hackable, hand-wound mechanical Orient cal. 48C40 movement with power reserve indicator. Domed, sapphire crystal. 40mmx13mm polished case.

Just your every day Orient, not a Royal or a Star.

It's Orient's proprietary gear-less mechanical movement. Winding the crown wakes up three magical fairies, all of differing genders. When sprung into action, the fairies each begin to move a different hand. The power reserve hand is moved by the gravitational pull of the moon.

Not bad for the price.

Looks nice, I'm a sucker for blued hands on a white dial. Since it's a true mechanical the power reserve is nice but it would be nicer a little smaller.
