Here are some cellphone pictures of the 2012 Orient X STI model that I saw at Big Time.
This model is produced to commemorative the 40th ADAC Zurich 24-Hour Race (Nürburgring 24-Hour Race) which took place from 17th to 20th May 2012. The SUBARU WRX STI tS, equipped with ORIENT M-FORCE on the dashboard won the SP3T class for the second year in a row.
This watch has a genuine carbon fibre dial just like the previous Orient X STI models. The power reserve indicator is designed to look like the gas guage.
The caseback is engraved with information about the race such as the team’s placing and the names of the participants. The serial number of the watch can also be found here.
Watch is limited to 1500 pieces.
Side by side with the M-Force Beast, EL06001B.
Here’s a review of the M-Force Beast.
is this must have for collection? 🙂 I had the 2011 one. And just had the strap replaced. How much does it cost? Seems to be the touch up version of M-Force Beast
Must have for STI fans I guess. If you have the 2010 and 2011 model, this one is probably a must have.
The 2011 model is also based on an earlier M-Force model.
Finally took the plunge & got myself one of these yesterday from Big Time.
Hi Yeoman, purchased one around a week ago. Noticed that I need to wind up the crown a lot more(nearly 2 mins) to get the watch ticking. Is this normal? Do u face the same issue with your other 2 EL 06 watches?
Mine usually start ticking within 1 minute of winding. Maybe it’s new. Give it some time to break in.
Thanks for the advice, Dude.
Luminescence Without luminescence, the M-Force wouldn’t have been much help during much of the 24-hour race. However, M-Force is fully-loaded with lume at each hour index and on each watch hand. Wear this watch confidently, day or night.
