This time round, I had the opportunity to handle yet another Orient X STI limited edition watch. This model is the second limited edition for the 2010 Nürburgring 24-hour Race. On their website, this watch is referred to as “Orient X SRI 2010 Limited Edition II” but within the Orient network, it is called “Orient X STI Stage II”.
This watch has a couple of unique features and the first one you probably notice is the position of the crown. It is located at the 9 o’clock position. The crown screws in but is a tad small in my opinion. Fortunately, the knurling helps to provide good grip.
The dial is made of carbon fibre material and has the 3D hologram effect when you look at it. The power reserve indicator is located at the 6 o’clock position and is designed to look like a gas gauge. They even put a gas gauge symbol on the dial.
Below are the side profile shots. The design of the lugs remind me of the Seiko Samurai except the lug width of this watch is 24mm.
Here’s another view showing the side profile and the flat Sapphire crystal.
The watch has a see through case back. The results of the race is engraved on the rotor as you can see.
The watch is powered by the Japan made 46N47 movement. This movement does not come with hack and handwind features.
The bracelet is pretty thick and sturdy. It is 24mm wide at the lugs and tapers to 22mm at the clasp.
Bracelet is fitted with the standard clasp with push button release and catch.
Here’s the presentation box of the watch.
Lug Width: 24mm
