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.
