Orient 60th Anniversary Quartz Model – SUND4002W


Orient celebrated its 60th Anniversary this year. Besides the 60th Anniversary handwind models, there was also a pair of quartz ‘Swimmer’ models released in the Thailand to commemorate the event.

The Orient Swimmer is a basic quartz watch that features 100m water resistance and a screw in crown. This product line is sold in the Japanese market but the Thai Orient distributor made arrangement to produce a 60th anniversary model for the Thailand market. Like the handwind models, the commemorative Swimmer model has the “Orient 60th Anniversary” printed on its dial in cursive font.

Here’s a photo review.

The caseback does not specify how many pieces were produced but I heard it was 1500 pieces.

Diameter: 37mm excluding crown
Thickness: 9mm
Lug width: 20mm

  1. Very classy. I wish it was 40mm, 37 is a tad small for me. Still, I love the classic and pure look. Great to have a screw down crown too.

  2. The white dial makes it appear bigger, though a 39mm or 40mm would be my own personal preference. Don’t they offer this with a mechanical movement? And I find the name, “Swimmer”, to be a little inappropriate for a watch that looks more like a dress watch than a diver’s watch. Well, that’s just my own personal opinion.

    Cheers!

  3. weird’ i just bought one today in malacca it’s a silver tone and there’s a two tone one still available, fits perfectly on my 61/2 wrist and second hand hits exactly on markers

    • A small quantity was sold to the distributors in the region. Big Time in Singapore got some directly from Orient. The distributor in Malaysia probably got some as well.
