This week, I had the opportunity to handle a new standard date Orient Star model. This is the first Orient Star model that features the SAR coating (Super Anti-reflective Coating), a technology that reduces light reflection by 99% according to Orient’s website. Two other types of coatings were applied to crystal to achieve greater scratch and stain resistant.
Here is a quick introduction of the SAR coating.
From the above, you can see that SAR coating provides excellent visibility and protection to the watch.
This model was made with a 40mm diameter to maximize its visibility. It is therefore bigger than most Orient Star models except the sporty ones. Here are some other salient features:
Simple case design with no unnecessary elements.
Good quality bracelet and clasp.
Flat Sapphire crystal.
Diameter: 40mm excluding crown
Lug width: 22mm
Overall, I think this watch is suitable for use as a daily dress watch. I particularly like the crystal clear look of the dial due to its SAR coating. This is a new feature for Orient Star watches besides the hack and hand wind which were added some time back.
