Here’s a new Orient classic automatic that has similar dial layout as the Orient Star classic (WZ0251EL). It comes under the international model and has already been nicknamed “Curator”.
Here’s a quick look:
Hour and minute hands are lumed and each hour marker is accompanied by a lume dot.
The polished finishing of the case and the un-signed crown remind me of the Orient Symphony. The case from the side looks pretty thick imo.
Solid caseback with nice engravings.
The watch comes with a nice leather strap with signed buckle.
Those who like the Orient Star classic, Bambino and Symphony may find the Curator interesting. This watch however cost more than the Bambino and Symphony due to its Sapphire crystal and better dial and hand finishing.
Diameter: 41mm excluding crown
Lug width: 22mm
