Some New Orient Stars

Post by conjurer » August 30th 2018, 8:26pm

Now that the Big O has killed off Royal Orient, it appears that they're releasing some new stuff for OS.

Heritage Gothic (don't blame me, I didn't name 'em):

38mm, sub-dial seconds, purdy, looks to be running about $650 street price.

What looks to be a replacement for the Orient Mako II:

Also, a bunch of new Orients, mainly open hearts and the goofy "sun-moon" stuff:

It's been embiggened for no reason - and much longer from lug to lug. You can tell by the placement of the date that it's got a tossy, undersized little movement in it. I see that the size comes with no increase in actual ability either.
