The Orient GMT finally reach our market here in Singapore and I had the opportunity to handle this white dial model the moment it was taken out of the shipping carton.
This is an international model with hack and handwind as well as a GMT hand that can be set independently. Let’s take a look.
This watch features an “all dial” design with Roman hour markers for 6, 9 and 12.
The dial is divided into four parts namely:
1. The centre part in which the Orient logo, date window, power reserve sub dial and inscriptions are placed.
2. The power reserver sub dial under the 12 o’clock marker
3. An outer part that contains the hour markers.
4. A non-rotatable 24 hour index ring.
Besides the 24 hour index ring, the rest of the dial are nicely textured as you can see in the picture below. Above the dial is a flat Sapphire crystal.
Here’s how watch works:
Crown at pushed in position: manual winding by turning clockwise.
Crown at first click position: Set date by turning clockwise. Set GMT hand by turning anti-clockwise.
Crown at second click position: Set hour, minute and second hands.
The GMT hand moves as you set the hour and minute hands. Hence you should set the time first before setting the GMT hand.
The watch comes with a see-through caseback with “Made in Japan” inscribed.
The watch is powered by a newly developed 40P51 movement. You can see some light decorations on the movement in the picture below.
Most parts of the case has polished finishing. Below is a side profile shot showing the polished side and unsigned crown.
Here’s the bracelet with butterfly folding clasp, push button release and solid endlinks.
