Orient Star GMT Automatic

Japanese watch brand Orient Star has released a new model equipped with a newly developed in-house automatic mechanical GMT movement.

In addition to the 24-hour hand with GMT function, this timepiece displays the time in up to three time zones by operating the rotating ring housed in the glass.

The design uses a shape that is simple yet expresses the strength of the design. The slope of the lug from the case to the band has been carved out with a round-bladed chisel, using Orient Star’s new dynamic design. The crown guard, which protects the crown from impact, is a separate part that is fixed with screws to bring out its sculptural appeal.

The dial is made up of five layers including the rotating ring, and the three-dimensional dial gradually increases in height from the center to the outside, creating a classy feel befitting a flagship model.

In addition, the indexes and hour and minute hands are cut to give them a three-dimensional shape, and the finishing is divided to give a sense of luxury and improve the visibility of the time. Additionally, a magnifying lens is used for the date display.
