Here’s a new Orient Power Reserve model that was released in 2011. Orient is known for their power reserve feature and offers it in a wide range of their product lines including Royal Orient, Orient Star, divers and other sports watches.
This model I am looking at in this post is an international model. Below are two previous power reserve models that I have looked at.
Orient made an improvement in the new model by offering hack and handwind features that most people would love to have in their watches. Let’s take a look.
This watch features a fully textured dial with the power reserve indicator nicely positioned under the 12 o’clock hour marker.
The shape of the hour markers matches very well with the hour and minute hands and they are three dimensional to provide better legibility of the dial.
On top of the dial is a slightly curved Sapphire crystal.
The layout of the dial reminds me of the Orient 60th Anniversary LE model.
You can handwind the watch with the crown at the pushed in position. The winding may not be smoothest I have seen but it gets the job done. You can see the power reserve indicator move as you wind the watch.
The crown only pull out to one position where you set the hour and minute hands. The pusher at the side of the case is used to set the date.
Below are the side profile shots.
The watch comes with see-through caseback showing the movement. As you can see on the rotor, the watch is powered by the 40G51 movement.
Here’s a closer look at the movement. I like the Orient logo in red and black colours on the rotor.
The watch is fitted with a stainless steel bracelet with push button lock.
Besides the white dial model, there is also a black dial as well as a two-tone variant.
Diameter: 39mm excluding crown
Lug width: 20mm
