Orient Disc Watch – ERAP002W

This time round, I had the opportunity to handle an automatic Orient disc watch or “weighing scale” as some call it. The main difference between this watch and a conventional automatic watch is that the hour and minute hands are replaced by rotating discs. The discs move in clockwise direction when the watch is in operation.

Below is a close up view of the watch. There is a window of the left of the crystal for reading the time. You can use the red line that is printed across the window as a guide. Ignoring the angle of the camera, we can say that the time shown is “9:10”.

It has a conventional second hand which is pointing at the 15 second mark as seen in the picture.

The date wheel surrounds the hour and minute discs and functions in the conventional way. Setting the time and date on this watch is exactly the same as you would on a standard mechanical watch. The movement does not hack and handwind.

Here are the side profile shots and caseback shots.

The watch comes with a black leather strap with black pvd buckle.

Lug to lug: 46mm
Width: 34.5mm excluding crown
Lug width: 25mm
