Photo Review of Orient Open Heart – DB08001W

This time round I had the opportunity to handle a rose gold dress watch made by Orient. This is an international model that comes in several variants including rose gold, stainless steel and all black case.

Here’s a photo review.

Overall, I feel that this watch is designed for people who like simple and elegant watches. It has a simple dial design coupled with a minimalist case that gave it an “all-dial” look. Even for whose who are not a fan of open heart watches, the simple design of this watch makes the open heart feature easier to accept.

You can see all the variants here:

Diameter: 41mm excluding crown
Lug width: 22mm
Thickness: 12mm

  2. Dear Thomas,

    Great pictures! You captured the luster of the rose gold finish with your shots. Lately, I have been awed by watches in rose gold. Must be due to my age. Seriously, I imagined this watch without the open heart and just a solid, plain dial….and it seemed fantastic. Hands, index markers, crown, lug shape all hark to the 60s-70s dress watch styling with one plus factor from this period…..the 41mm size!




    • Good insights, Jun. It would be a nicer watch if it does not have the open heart. The case, hands and hour markers are a perfect combo. They should throw in a hack and handwind movement as well.
