The ORIENT STAR Basic Date is a practical yet simple timepiece with urban refinements which elude the essence of the ORIENT STAR brand. It features a strong, sporty 42-mm case, a simple, clear and easy to read dial, and in-house automatic movement with 50-hour power reserve. This sporty and elegant timepiece will be available from May 2020.
The Basic Date with the sharp, solid, yet elegant design synonymous with ORIENT STAR, combines a three-hand time display with power reserve indicator and date window. The design includes fine details including a mirror-polished slope and fluid lines extending from the sides of the new larger 42mm case to the lugs. These have a cut surface characteristic of ORIENT STAR, shaped to pass easily through the wearer’s sleeve. The three-link solid stainless steel strap extending from the case enhances the Basic Date’s overall sporty feel.
Typical of ORIENT STAR timepieces is the rich assortment of deep dial colors, from sharp black to blue, white, grey, and green. The dial is designed for clear readability, even at the quickest of glances, thanks to the combination of long hands, a large case, and bold bar indices. Adding to the watch’s simplicity is the subtle design of the power reserve indicator, which further enhances the watch’s simplicity and readability.
Finally, the Basic Date uses SUS316 stainless steel for the strap, scratch-resistant sapphire for the crystal, and is powered by a high-performance, in-house movement with automatic winding mechanism.
