DAKS Authentic & Classic Watch

Orient Watch Company has created the DAKS Authentic & Classic to celebrate the 115th anniversary of British luxury clothing and apparels brand DAKS.

DAKS is a long-established luxury house that has built a tradition of quality and trust, including being appointed as a purveyor to the British Royal Family. This year marks the 115th anniversary of Simeon Simpson’s founding of a small tailor shop on Middlesex Street, London in 1894.

The newly DAKS Authentic & Classic watch made by Orient retains the sophisticated and characteristic design of DAKS, but houses an independently developed retrograde movement.

DAKS Authentic & Classic Watch Made by Orient

The retrograde movement, which took about two years to develop, is characterized by a change in the display from Sunday to Monday, with the hand pointing to the fan-shaped day of the week instantly returning to its starting point, Monday and start moving again.

In addition, it is equipped with a full range of functions such as a power reserve indicator function, calendar (date) function, and second hand stop device.

The dial has a two-layer structure that gives it a three-dimensional feel, and the DAKS traditional check pattern is featured in the center, giving it a delicate and high-quality design.

The high-quality crocodile leather strap offers a solid feel. It the back side is decorated with the signature DAKS check pattern, creating a traditional and elegant atmosphere.
