This Orient dual time model announced quite some time ago is finally available in Singapore. It’s main features are: dual time display, slide rule, power reserve and date.
Here’s a quick look.
Dial: textured dial with power reserve at 12 o’clock position, dual time indicator at 3 o’clock position and date sub-dial at 6 o’clock position.
Side: nicely finished case with signed crown.
Crown: Crown at 3 o’clock for setting time and date. Crown at 4 o’clock rotates the slide rule. Both are screw-in crown.
Crown operation: At first click position, turn anti-clockwise to set date. Turn clockwise to set the dual time indicator. At second click position, turn crown to set hour and minute hands. Second hand stops when crown is at this position.
Caseback: see through type.
Buckle and clasp: folding buckle with push button lock. Forged clasp rather than stamped one.
Diameter: 44mm excluding crown
Lug width: 22mm

is the calendar perpetual, or it needs to be set each month?
actually i asked that on the other article mentioned here 😛
Not real perpetual calendar. It needs to be set each month if necessary.
Worthy of the Orient Star badge. A great looking watch this.
It’s and nice watch and its build quality is a small step below the Orient Star.
