I finally got the opportunity to handle the new Orient GMT. This is an international model that was released in four colour variants. The specimen that I have here is the black dialed variant – model# FFE06001B.
Let’s take a look.
This watch is powered by the Orient 46P40 automatic movement. According to Orient’s website, the movement is made in Japan. You can also see the words “JAPAN MOV’T” at the bottom of the dial next to the 6 o’clock marker. The movement is equipped with a 24 hour indicator hand (cannot be set independently) and quick set date.
Looking at the watch from various angles, you will notice that the case design resembles that of the Seiko Samurai to a certain degree especially the lugs and crown guard.
The bezel rotates in both directions and makes 72 clicks per round. There are compass and 24 hour marking on the bezel that makes the watch both a GMT and an adventure watch.
Here’s another view of the watch. You can see that it is fitted with a flat crystal.
The crown is not signed but screws in.
Shown below is the caseback shot. Watch comes with solid caseback and has a water resistance of 200m as shown.
The watch comes with a oyster style metal bracelet with push button clasp and safety catch.
Diameter: 45mm excluding crown
Lug to lug: 50mm
Lug width: 22mm
Here are all the colour variants:
