Pictorial Review: Orient Star WZ0031JC

Another Orient Star that I handled recently is the WZ0031JC. This is a Japan domestic model that is made available at Big Time (Sims Ave). This watch comes with an inner rotating world time bezel as well as Orient’s trademark power reserve feature.

Before going to the pictures, here is the crown operation as observed by me.

When you pull the crown to its first click position, you can set the date by turning it towards you (anti-clockwise). You can also set the inner world time bezel by turning it in the opposite direction (clockwise). Crown at the second click position lets you set the time. Note that as you set the time, the inner world time bezel will rotate accordingly. Crown at pushed in position allows you to handwind the watch.

Here are some pictures that show the salient features of the watch.

(Power reserve sub-dial at 12, date sub-dial at 9 and second hand sub-dial at 6)

  1. When you say “genuine” crocodile strap, do you mean that the leather really came from the skin of a real (dead) crocodilian? If it’s genuine crocodile skin, I’d be interested in getting a few straps for my watches.

    Oh, nice watch BTW. :p


  2. Hi, Thanks for the great pictures of this watch. I like it very much. Do you happen to know what the BPH is on this peice?
