Here are a couple of new Orient watches I saw at Big Time today. Shown above is the Orient Star semi-skeleton model (DK05003W) in pink gold case and white dial. This model is recently launched in Japan as well as in the international market.
Check out the other models below.
Saw these at Big Time last Saturday. Each of them is limited to 500 pieces. Besides the strap that is attached on the watch, each watch comes with two additional straps (without buckle). The straps are sized for folding buckle rather than tang buckle.
Here are the pictures of the watches and their respective straps.
I was lucky enough to see the Seiko Cocktail Time SARB068 again last weekend. This watch was released in 2010 and was limited to 300 pieces.
Seiko has released a Brightz model, SDGM008 that has a similar design except it uses Roman numerals instead of Arabic.
Orient has released a limited edition Fashionable Automatic model for this coming Valentine’s Day, The watch, model number ER2E006R features a sexy red wine coloured dial, sapphire crystal and a row of sparkling crystal decorations on each side of the bezel.
Last week, I had the opportunity to put my SRP385J next to a SARX019 (watch on the right in the above picture). These two watches have similar looking case and both come with leather strap with deployant buckle. The differences are:
SARX019 vs SRP385J
– 6R15 vs 4R36 movement
– Curved sapphire crystal vs flat sapphire crystal
– enamel dial vs regular white dial
– Blue hands vs black hands
Here is the other variant of the vintage style Seiko that I mentioned in my previous post. This model is based on the hidden lugs model that was released last year (link at the bottom of this post). Main difference is that it does not a faceted crystal. A curved crystal is used instead.
Here are some pictures.
Seiko released two vintage style models using the 7S26C last year (links at the end of this post). This year, they released a few more variants based on the two models. These variants come with different dial designs and straps. There are also some minor differences which I shall highlight in this post.
