The Japanese watch brand ORIENT celebrates its 70th anniversary this year. In commemoration, the company will release its Revival Collection of models that representing the most cherished timepieces from its history.
In May 2020, ORIENT will unveil the Retro Future Camera watch, recreating a popular model that incorporates camera details into its retro mechanical design. The Retro Future Camera watch incorporates design features reminiscent of classic 1950s rangefinder cameras. This model is a 70th anniversary edition limited to 2,300 pieces.
The Retro Future Camera is a modern twist on the original, retaining many of its features including the dial, inspired by a camera’s lens aperture blades; the bezel, mimicking its aperture ring; the crown and crown guard, reminiscent of the rewind knob, and the square top of a camera cover.
Further design touches mimic the camera-like design, such as the new case back that simulates a viewfinder, and the pull-through leather strap suggesting the leather material covering the camera body. Like the King Diver, it also features design elements found in the popular Jaguar Focus such as the gold gradation of the dial.
